A great listen

I admit it, I am a fan of any books on cooking, from Bill Buford's Heat to Tony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. This book is the first one I have listened to rather than read. The narrator is excellent, and I can close my eyes and imagine it is Chef Boulud speaking to me.

It's not a long book, but fascinating to listen to.
