Widely recognized as the godfather of modern American cooking and a mentor to such rising celebrity chefs as Mario Batali, Jeremiah Tower is one of the most influential cooks of the last thirty years. Now, the former chef and partner at Chez Panisse and the genius behind Stars San Francisco tells the story of his lifelong love affair with food -- an affair that helped to spark an international culinary revolution.

Tower shares with wit and honesty the real dish on cooking, chefs, celebrities, and what really goes on in the kitchen. Above all, Tower rhapsodizes about food -- the meals choreographed like great ballets, the menus scored like concertos. No other book reveals more about the seeds sown in the seventies, the excesses of the eighties, and the self-congratulations of the nineties. No other chef/restaurateur who was there at the very beginning is better positioned than Jeremiah Tower to tell the story of the American culinary revolution.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"[W]hen Tower writes of his inspirations and the extraordinary foods and people he worked with, he is unfailing intriguing and righteously grounded." 06/01/2003

New York Times Book Review
"Tower still knows how to dish: his book describes experiences with drugs, encounters with celebrities, his own bisexuality and tiffs with Alice Waters, his Chez Panisse business partner." - Judy D'Mello 08/24/2003
