Narrator Malik Rashad captures the highs and lows in the life of an ambitious young chef. In this adapted memoir, Kwame Onwuachi recounts his early years as a child of Nigeria, Louisiana, and the Bronx and how they prepared him to succeed as one of the few Black chefs in fine dining. Rashad occasionally hesitates over French-derived restaurant slang but does an excellent job finessing both Onwuachi's inner voice and his brash presentation to the world. A tone of sadness and frustration reflects Onwuachi's pain at early abuse by his father and racism he frequently encountered in the kitchen. These difficulties are complemented by his exultation at his successes in the culinary world. N.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
