Publisher's Summary

Without question, the original rock-star chef is Marco Pierre White. Anyone with even a passing interest in the food world knows White is a legend. The first British chef (and the youngest chef anywhere) to win three Michelin stars - and the only chef ever to give them all back - is a chain-smoking, pot-throwing multiply married culinary genius whose fierce devotion to food and restaurants has been the only constant in a life of tabloid-ready turmoil.
In The Devil in the Kitchen, White tells the story behind his ascent from working-class roots to culinary greatness, leaving no dish unserved as he relays raucous and revealing tales featuring some of the biggest names in the food world and beyond, including: Mario Batali, Gordon Ramsay, Albert Roux, Raymond Blanc, Michael Caine, Damien Hirst, and even Prince Charles. With candid honesty and wicked humor, he gives us insight into what it takes to become a great chef, what it's like to run a three-star kitchen, and why sometimes you really do need to throw a cheese plate at the wall.

Maniac hero chef.

I loved reading Marcos tales of the solid hard work that is normal in British kitchens. His drive to be the best and his path getting there were so interesting. Having lived and worked in London in kitchens in the 80's , he shares the truth albeit raw and nasty. This is a great read for anyone going into this profession and people who love food'
