Well written, and I learned more than I ever wanted to know about the life of somebody working in a professional kitchen.
Welp. None of my laundry got done, nor did the vacuuming, but I would say it was a day better spent. I could not put this memoir down. It is a very fresh perspective on the culinary world, ripe with bittersweet humor and vibrant characters. Kurr's writing style is smooth, honest, and effortless, and I look forward to reading more from him in the future.
For anyone interested in what it is really like in the kitchen, particularly a pastry kitchen, or anyone who wants something fun, eye opening and new to read, I highly suggest Sugar Burn.
