What a fantastic book! J. Tower OBVIOUSLY educated, eloquent and talented writer and story teller and more than just a chef! Food perspective, menus, business approach, standards, all awesome. An education in running restaurants.
Loved it, was great meeting him at the San Francisco premier of the documentary and really touched on points in the book.
Interesting book about big egos in food business. Wonderful menu ideas.
A really fun, well written memoir that offers a great window into Northern California during the 1970s and 80s.
The story was great ... sent the 2nd copy to a friend for birthday ...
Excellent book by JT. It’s a classic that you must have in you book case
