"Marco is a gift to humanity, with more passion per pound than anyone else I have ever met...His sophisticated cooking came out of nowhere but inside his rock-star head...After all these years, Marco is still my hero."
"Marco is probably the most charismatic chef of the twentieth century: the last of the romantics, a brooding Byron of the Kitchen, the most creative person you'll ever meet and the most self-destructive, a self-described monster and an unrecognized poet, and, without question, the most influential British chef since the invention of fish and chips."
—Bill Buford, author of Heat
“Marco Pierre White is the man...cooking at its finest.... He was gritty and glamorous and in your face before everybody and everything was trying to be that way.”
—David Chang, owner/chef of Momofuku
