This review is from: Skirt Steak: Women Chefs on Standing the Heat and Staying in the Kitchen (Hardcover)
I have followed Charlotte Druckman's writing in a variety of places. Besides being incredibly knowledgable about almost every aspect of food, what you sense is that she REALLY enjoys it. It's not JUST an intellectual enterprise--you feel the pleasure she gets from it. But of course the real issue is her subject: looking at the lives of women chefs in a really fascinating way. All I know is that I was more curious about this whole world after finishing it, which is always the sign of a great book.
