  • I Think I Want To Be A Chef – The Stinky Chef Chronicles


    This is not a book to deter young budding students from becoming chefs; in fact, it's quite the contrary. This is merely my experiences, sharing stories, recipes, fun times, camaraderie, ambition, with a few potential pitfalls along the way through the eyes of a discerning chef.
