Food Network fans – this book is for you!
The network has really taken off since it’s humble beginnings and has launched and expanded the careers of many chefs who are now household names. Naturally, there are many entertaining stories behind the scenes.
From Scratch has a wonderful combination of basic facts and entertaining personal stories and gossip. I was already familiar with some of these stories, but much of the book was completely new to me. I now have a much greater appreciation and understanding of the shows that I watch and the chefs that I admire and the ones that I don’t exactly like.
The book is entertaining for foodies and fans of the entertainment industry. There is history, drama and humor.
