Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

After commencing a successful career running kitchens in great New York and San Francisco restaurants, Chef Shalleck takes on a summertime challenge: cooking for a superrich Italian couple aboard their yacht, Serenity. Once aboard the elegant boat, Shalleck must lend a hand wherever needed, taking his turn on the watch and becoming as skilled at furling sails as at slicing foie gras. This luxurious yacht starts the season in Antibes and calls at ports up and down the French and Italian coasts. Shalleck puts every bit of his culinary skills to the test, preparing everything from midnight snacks to dinner parties for 100 or more, all from the yacht's tiny galley. He has to satisfy the owners' uncompromising demands for elegance as well as feed the crew and cater huge shipboard parties. Shalleck's tales of cooking in heavy seas provide both high drama and low humor. Mark Knoblauch

Review

Praise for Mediterranean Summer

“Sailing the Mediterranean in summer is the stuff of dreams. And in the company of a chef who plies the bounteous markets and creates food for the gods, this is indeed a heady journey. For the reader, the luscious meals and the ports of call are seductive; for the chef, the summer aboard the luxurious yacht is also a coming-of-age experience, when hard-won accolades and daunting challenges change him into the person he wants to be. A perfect book for the vacation flight to some paradise.” —Frances Mayes

“David has captured the life of a chef in an adventurous way….You will fall in love with the exotic places, fascinating people, and old-world cuisine that is true magic.” —Cat Cora, executive chef, Bon Appétit

“Although David did not choose the typical path to becoming a chef, he gives a very honest account of the thoughts and emotions—elation, happiness, dejection, passion, and moments of inspiration—that all cooks go through. It was completely absorbing.” —Thomas Keller, The French Laundry

“Fast-paced, fascinating, and well-written, this wonderful adventure at sea captures David's quest for the ultimate ingredients along the Mediterranean coast, the total immersion of this young American cook in the French, and particularly, the Italian cultures and, finally, the birth of a talented chef. Bravo!” —Jacques Pépin
