If you loved Gourmet Magazine, if you used the recipes, this book is for you. I felt like I was meeting again with old friends whenever a familiar name like Kempy or Sertl or Grimes appeared. The stories of the excess of money thrown around during the early 2000’s (Ruth had a clothing allowance, driver, always flew first class, etc.) are amazing and the story of its rapid downfall horrifying, a combination of hubris and the recession. I would have liked more reflection on the author’s part but this was a quick, satisfying read.
