CHEFS, DRUGS AND ROCK & ROLL How Food Lovers, Free Spirits, Misfits and Wanderers Created a New American Profession

by | Read by Roger Wayne

Contemporary Culture • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This audiobook, vigorously narrated by Roger Wayne, covers a lot of ground. It is packed with stories of celebrity chefs, influential restaurateurs, and their lives and times. Wayne is more than an adept narrator, he aptly interprets Friedman's accounts of the chefs who would become stars. If you want to hear the origin stories of Alice Waters, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Paul Prudhomme, among many others, then this audiobook will serve you well. The profiles are based on Friedman's extensive interviews. Saturated with inside scoops and seasoned with revealing moments, this is a fun foray into the social history of the American restaurant.
