Hi, Hannah & Dane!
My new book, "Back of the House," about the psychology of being a chef, is out on 2/5/13 with Berkley/Penguin.
We have a 4000 word excerpt in Boston magazine on 1/29/13.
Eater just named it as, "Honorable Mention," for Spring books, 2013.
I'm speaking at the National Restaurant Association in Chicago in May.
It was #9 on Kindle, pre-release, today in Professional Cooking Books.
The book includes interviews/chapters with very famous folks: Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller, Andrew Carmellini, Drew Nieporent, Tony Maws, Dave Pasternack, and Daniel Humm.
The interviews are intimate and psychological as I've known these folks for many years.
Who are these people, really?
What are the stories they tell a shrink about why they chose to isolate themselves from society in basement kitchens and behind stoves? What pain infuses their celebrity?
Who in their right mind becomes a chef?
I'm a James Beard award winner for my work on, "Here and Now," at WBUR (NPR affiliate), as well as chief psychologist at a private psychiatric hospital in Brookline.
This is the link to the book at Penguin: http://www.us.penguingroup.com/nf/Book/BookDispla….
Is there an interest in having a Q&A with me about the book and a review?
