To start, let me just say-I had never heard of Tim Ferriss when I picked up this book on a whim. I did not realize this was his 3rd book, nor did I realize the broad range of topics we would be discussing. I picked up this 634+page book on a Wednesday and COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! Like a junkie on a bender-I had to go until I couldn't go anymore...I finished it on Sunday (4.5days).
To begin, I appreciate Tim's honesty about his trials and errors in the kitchen and what brought him to take on the haute cuisine hurdle. I felt Tim captured the essence of what good chefs focus on daily:
- You never know everything about [food].
- Everyday you learn something new.
- Simple is best.
You will walk away from this book looking at the world in a new light. That, I promise.
