When critically-acclaimed writer, Bill Buford, leaves his job at The New York Times to work in Mario Batali’s famous restaurant – Babbo – he gets more than he bargained for. And readers get a fascinating glimpse into the hard labour – and love – that goes into making a kitchen work properly.

Great for:

• A gift for the food lover near you
• Those interested in a behind-the-scenes look at one of NYC’s most famous restaurants
• Anyone with the misconception that working in a kitchen doesn’t require your soul
