Date: 2002 - 2007


In a fast-paced, candid narrative, Bill Buford describes three frenetic years of trials and errors, disappointments and triumphs, as he worked his way up the Babbo ladder from kitchen slave to line cook; his relationship with the larger-than-life Batali, whose story he learns as their friendship grows through kitchen encounters and after-work all-nighters; and his immersion in the arts of butchery in Northern Italy, of preparing game in London and making handmade pasta at an Italian trattoria.
