I read this one in a single breath, carried on by the excellent writing and style and the absolutely fascinating story of a man who changed the way we eat and cook. And the added bonus were the recipes which I will have to revisit and try out. A must for anyone who is interested in extraordinary people, the way our attitudes to food and eating out have changed, or just anyone with a healthy interest in food and cooking. A fantastic biography and a great read, and written by the Father of California Cuisine - Jeremiah Tower. Simply delicious!
