Michael Lomonaco narrates Andrew Friedman’s high-energy audiobook with the right tempo, cadence, and tone. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss this tale of all the work that goes into creating a perfect dish. Lomonaco is a famed chef, restaurateur, and TV personality, so he understands the intensity and focus of a creative kitchen. The author is especially adept at profiles, including farmers, chefs, and employees at every level of a restaurant, as well as the people in distribution. Friedman’s portrait of Chicago’s former Wherewithall Restaurant is a loving testimony to high-end dining, specifically the restaurant’s complex four-course tasting menus that delighted diners and critics alike.
