.. and I absolutely loved it! I worked in a restaurant through college (I was a waitress). I hated the kitchen staff - I tought they were the most disgusting, vulgar bunch. They were really the scum of theearth in my eyes and I thought it was just that paricular restaurant. I swore that other restaurants were calmer, cleaner, with real professional chefs! This book was hysterical, it completely showed me that I was completely wrong and naive in my thinking!
