A wonderful look into the experiences and humor of one of my favorite chefs! It left me wanting to know more. I bought this book because I want to show my support to the wonderful chef that has written a series of instructional cook books companioned to his youtube channel. I had this book sitting around for a few months before I picked it up to read it. I really did read it all in one night! I kept coming in and interrupting my husbands tv program to tell him about some funny or amazing part of the book. A really good read! Thank you Greg!
I loved this book! I read it in one sitting. (Now my neck hurts!) I'm familiar with Chef Greg Easter from his excellent YouTube channel "cookinginrussia". I've been a fan of cooking and cooking shows since I was a child. I loved Graham Kerr "The Galloping Gourmet", and, of course, Julia Child. But, Chef Easter is my all time favorite media chef. His dishes are typically the best version or twist on a given item that I've ever had. But, beyond the cooking, he has always impressed me with his obvious high intellect and seemingly broad range of skills. Being a 40 yr veteran of High Tech and Aerospace, and having gone to college on an Art Scholarship, I have consistently seen hints of his broad background in the versatility of his presentations, including his excellent photography. As I respect and admire his skills, reading this autobiography was a given.He took me on a whirlwind tour of stories that made me laugh, made me empathize with some of the crap he had to wade through in the technical field, and deepened my respect for him and his courage. I consistently felt like we were sitting around and Chef was telling us stories of his past. Try his other books too. His Mixology book is fascinating and helps me make wonderful, clean, fresh tasting cocktails. His YouTube companion Cookbook adds another level of excellence to his body of video work.
I just recently found Greg Easter's youtube channel, which is wonderful, but the live he's lead leading up to now is even more interesting. 40 Years in One Night is a whirlwind tour through the past of a man who started a successful TV repair business having never even opened a TV, got his first programming job less than 24 hours after seeing a computer for the first time, and spoofed his way into cooking in a 2-Michelin star restaurant for an evening because he was served a sub-par lamb curry dish and they had a new hire that shared his name.It's a quick read akin more to a verbal (probably lightly photoshopped) scrap-book than a full autobiography, but it's worth your time.
I always love to read success stories, so that I can see how those people get there. This is a great story of a man who had the intelligence to do anything he wanted in life, and how he chose to become a chef. From Childhood to current day, from the US to Italy, back to the US and finally to Russia. A great read!
Fascinating stories from the chef behind possibly the only cooking videos YouTube channel worth subscribing to if you want to learn how to make great restaurant quality food. I was already a big fan of Greg Easter before getting this book, and even more so after reading.
