Book Review: Scars of a Chef

So, I must admit reality tv, especially cooking shows, has become quite the guilty pleasure for me. From time to time, when I'm watching the shows my mind begins to wander to what that life is like and how those people got there. 

The book Scars of a Chef:  The Searing Story of a Top Chef Marked Forever by the Grit and Grace of Life in the Kitchen by Rick Tramonto details one such story. This book, written in a memoir style, details Rick Tramonto's path to his fame and acclaim as a chef. It elaborates on the hurdles and bumps in the road on the way to achieving success and working your way to the top (losing a restaurant to a fire for example). The book is impeccably written and captivating. It brings alive the story alive for the reader and allows one to experience the path Rick took. It also shows a Christian radio broadcast was the necessary turning point in Rick's life and re-started his path in the right direction.

This book provides an insight into the reality of Rick's life and will leave you walking away impressed even more by his success knowing what it took to achieve it. It really is an inspirational piece that allows you to reevaluate your own struggles with a renewed perspective. I would definitely recommend picking this one up.
