What I love about this autobiography is that it is written by a man who either has nothing to prove or just feels that way. There is no self aggrandisement here or cherry picking only the events and deeds that make him look good. His unceremonious departure from the Box Tree restaurant is one example of a self inflicted disaster due to rash naïve decision making. He also looks back on people that he has judged and ostracised, sometimes remembering their good qualities and wondering if he did the right thing. His matter of fact delivery makes the successes all the more amazing when they come. In fact, when someone writes in this style, (avoiding flowery unnecessarily verbose language), the impact can be quite powerful. When he describes his last ever glimpse of his mother being put into the back of an ambulance it is a hammer blow. I can't say I particularly felt like I was enjoying this book, but I couldn't put it down - I needed to find out what happened, (although we have a sneaking feeling that it is not an unhappy ending). I have always felt that there is far more substance to this man than the slightly noisier and frothier Gordon Ramsay and the manufactured plastic of Jamie Oliver, and this book supports that fills in the reasons why. The story is dramatic and packs in more ups and downs and twists and turns than many works of fiction manage to. Loved it.
From little-seen midweek lunchtime ITV food programmes to Times newspaper reviews and articles.
