9780752881614: The Devil in the Kitchen: The Autobiography

Without question, the original rock-star chef is Marco Pierre White. Anyone with even a passing interest in the food world knows White is a legend. The first British chef (and the youngest chef anywhere) to win three Michelin stars—and the only chef ever to give them all back—is a chain-smoking, pot-throwing multiply married culinary genius whose fierce devotion to food and restaurants has been the only constant in a life of tabloid-ready turmoil.

In The Devil in the Kitchen, White tells the story behind his ascent from working-class roots to culinary greatness, leaving no dish unserved as he relays raucous and revealing tales featuring some of the biggest names in the food world and beyond, including: Mario Batali, Gordon Ramsay, Albert Roux, Raymond Blanc, Michael Caine, Damien Hirst, and even Prince Charles. With candid honesty and wicked humor, he gives us insight into what it takes to become a great chef, what it's like to run a three-star kitchen, and why sometimes you really do need to throw a cheese plate at the wall.

Review:

Amazon Significant Seven, May 2007: Marco Pierre White made history as the most decorated chef in the UK and still holds the honor as the youngest chef ever to win three Michelin stars. Billed as a "brooding Byron" of the kitchen, MPW brought a punk-rock sensibility to his craft, shattering centuries-old rules of fine-dining tradition (and bruising many egos in the process) in his pursuit for perfection. He remains a searing influence on a generation of chefs who survived tours-of-duty in his kitchen brigade and those inspired by White Heat, his modern-classic cookbook (and now high-priced collector's item). In his absorbing culinary memoir, The Devil in the Kitchen, MPW offers intimate insights into his storied career presenting a larger-than-life portrait of a living legend and a culinary genius. --Brad Thomas Parsons

About the Author:

Marco Pierre White is hailed as the Godfather of modern cooking. He was the first British chef - and the world's youngest - to win three Michelin stars.
Born in Yorkshire, England, in 1961, Marco is the son and grandson of chefs. He trained under masters such as Albert Roux, Raymond Blanc and Pierre Koffmann, and then opened his first restaurant, Harveys, in south-west London. His protégés included Gordon Ramsay and Jason Atherton.  
Marco's 1990 bestseller White Heat is described as the most influential cookbook ever written. It inspired a generation of young cooks, including Tom Kerridge and Anthony Bourdain.
In 1995, Marco won his three stars at the age of 33, at Restaurant Marco Pierre White at the Hyde Park Hotel.   

As a gossip columnist in the late eighties, James Steen phoned Harveys to speak with Marco Pierre White. A maître d' answered the phone and ranted on in a strong French accent about how White was "a monster, a crazy man, a lunatic to work for." The "maître d'," it transpired, was White. The relationship went from there. Steen, an award-winning journalist and food writer, continues to collaborate with chefs on their books. He lives a short stroll from what was once Harveys.
