This book is not worth the time or money. There is little information about starting a food business. Its more like a bunch of magazine interviews. Two of the businesses are already defunct.

I happened upon Jennifer Lewis' blog for culinary entrepreneurs purely by chance. I thought her website was incredibly informative, so I purchased Handmade. What a great read! Unlike most instructional how-to books, it is lively and well-written with inspiring stories about real people with real companies "made from scratch." It definitely pushed me towards starting my own business. I will definitely purchase more of Jennifer Lewis' books. She really knows her stuff!

Format: Paperback
I have a cliché dream: to unshackle myself from my desk job and open a small food business. But like so many with the same dream, I have no background in the food industry. This book was very inspirational. Most of the entrepreneurs featured started their businesses with little or no food industry experience, and they have not failed. On the contrary, they used their past life experiences and business savvy to create successful new careers and thriving businesses.

Their stories alone are enough to make this a worth while read for anyone who wants the confidence to pursue their small food business dream, but having the entrepreneur's strategies broken out into easy to understand 'recipes' makes this book an invaluable resource.

I finished reading a self help entrepreneurial book about starting a food business. The book is titled “Hand Made” and the author is Jenifer Lewis.

Great book if you have that entrepreneurial drive in your. Always asking yourself or others, “how did they start that business?” You do not need to be a foodie or want to start a food business to read the book. I am neither. The book gives stories of entrepreneurial growth from around the country. All the stories are from small business, that is what interests me.

Jenifer Lewis, the author, is straight to the point and highlights the best information. Great Job Jen! What is your next book? I would like to read a book about small schools.

Thanks,
Ron Grosinger
