Audible Editor Reviews

Food connoisseurs, junkies, and interested generalists, this is the conversation for you. Food journalist and author Michael Ruhlman moderates a conversation at New York’s famed 92nd Street Y venue with leading chefs Anthony Bourdain, Gabrielle Hamilton, and Eric Ripert, true restaurant legends.
The chefs discuss their formative years in the restaurant business. Sit back and enjoy Bourdain’s familiar, smoky voice as he describes entering a trade that, at the time, "only attracted losers" and how he found pride for the first time in his life as a dishwasher. Hear Ripert’s account of how a piece of artichoke can bring out the flavor of a fish. This audiobook is best enjoyed over a sauce that nearly broke a cook’s back.

Not much more than an interview

I did enjoy listening to the stories by the group but I felt like I could have seen the this on PBS.
