'A terrific nuts and bolts account of the real business of cooking as told from the trenches. No nonsense. This is what it takes' ANTHONY BOURDAIN

'One of the most informative, funny and transparent books about the restaurant biz ever written' BRET EASTON ELLIS

Sous Chef takes you behind the swinging doors of a busy restaurant kitchen, putting you in chef's shoes for an intense, high-octane twenty-four hours. Follow him from the moment he opens the kitchen in the morning, as he guides you through the meticulous preparation, the camaraderie in the hours leading up to service and the adrenalin-rush as the orders start coming in. Thrilling, addictive and bursting with mouth-watering detail, Sous Chef will leave you breathless and awestruck - walking into a restaurant will never be the same again.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A terrific nuts and bolts account of the real business of cooking as told from the trenches. No nonsense. This is what it takes - ANTHONY BOURDAIN

One of the most informative, funny and transparent books about the restaurant biz ever written - BRET EASTON ELLIS

A good cook chooses ingredients carefully, just as a writer must select the right words. Michael Gibney is a word cook of the highest order and this book will leave you licking your fingers - GARY SHTEYNGART, author of Super Sad True Love Story

Miraculous . . . Gibney has the soul of the poet and the stamina of a stevedore . . . Tender and profane - New York Times Book Review

Gibney's writing is in Anthony Bourdain's league: he puts across both the intense stress and the intense joy of cooking in a professional kitchen - Time, 15 Best Books of 2014

This is excellent writing - excellent! - and it is thrilling to see a debut author who has language and story and craft so well in hand. Though I would never ask my staff to read my own book, I would happily require them to read Michael Gibney's - GABRIELLE HAMILTON, author of Blood, Bones and Butter

Thrillingly crafted - The Bookseller

Fascinating and fun - Boston Globe

The pace - when you're in the thick of it - is thrilling, and the tension palpable - Independent

Compelling . . . a fascinating read - Herald
