I confess I'm a bit of a foodie so I love the descriptions of how some of the dishes were prepared, it made the book come alive to me. I was also intrigued by Brendan's comments on the five star hotels he has worked it, especially the one in Singapore which I have stayed in a number of times. It was fascinating to view this hotel from the "other side" although I believe it has undergone at least two major renovations since he was there.
Cheffin' is a well written book. It's written in an easy style that makes reading it pure pleasure, and I can almost taste the dishes he is describing. Yum! I also like the recipes and intend to try a few of then, especially the venison.
This is a book that I'm very glad I read. Thank you, Brendan, for sharing your life with us.
Cheffin' has everything I love - - family, food, Ireland, world travel. I have dreamed of being a chef and went so far as to resign from my job several years ago, enroll in a culinary school in Ireland, then change plans after a significant adjustment in the old position. I am too old now and know I will regret that decision for the remainder of my days.
Cheffin' is a warm, delightful, delicious memoir. Thank you, Chef Cronin, for sharing your wonderful life.
