No Experience Necessary PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

No Experience Necessary free pdf Long considered a culinary renegade and a pioneering chef, Norman Van Aken is an American original who chopped and charred, sweated and seared his way to cooking stardom with no formal training, but with extra helpings of energy, creativity, and faith. No Experience Necessary is Chef Van Aken's joyride of a memoir. In it he spans twenty-plus years and nearly as many jobs-including the fateful job advertisement in the local paper for a short-order cook with "no experience necessary." In the irreverent tradition of Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential, and populated by a rogues' gallery of colorful characters-including movie stars, legendary musicians, and culinary giants Julia Child, Emeril Lagasse, and Charlie Trotter-No Experience Necessary offers a uniquely personal, highly-entertaining under-the-tablecloth view of the high-stakes world of American cuisine told with wit, insight, and great affection by a natural storyteller.
