Publishers Text

A hilarious and heartening collection of kitchen catastrophes.

In this raucous new anthology, thirty of the world's greatest chefs relate outrageous true tales from their kitchens. From hiring a blind line cook to butting heads with a crazed chef to witnessing security guards attacking hungry customers, these behind-the-scenes accounts are as wildly entertaining as they are revealing. A delicious reminder that even the chefs we most admire aren't always perfect, and featuring never-before-seen recipes from each contributor, Don't Try This At Home is a must-have for anyone who loves food--or the men and women who masterfully prepare it.

Including stories by José Andrés, Mario Batali, Rick Bayless, Daniel Boulud, Anthony Bourdain, Jimmy Bradley, Terrance Brennan, Scott Bryan, Tamasin Day Lewis, Wylie Dufresne, Todd English, Gabrielle Hamilton, Fergus Henderson, Michael Lomonaco, Pino Luongo, Alfred Portale, Eric Ripert, Marcus Samuelsson, and more...
