Product Details

Praise

"[Life, on the Line] may be the best, most inspiring chef memoir ever written." — American Way

"[Life, on the Line] is full of energy and without pretense." — Chicago Tribune

"The next great food memoir." — Details

"This must-read for the culinary crowd is the literary equivalent of caviar and Krug. Foodies will marvel at Achatz’s thought process on his molecular creations, while Kokonas provides a detailed glimpse of the artistic vision and creation of modern fine dining." — Booklist

"Writing with the panache of professionals, Achatz, chef and owner of Chicago’s Alinea, and his business partner, Kokonas, relate the story of Achatz’s life and work in a memoir that lives up to its expansive subtitle. …Achatz and Kokonas share an engaging, well-written, and informative description of what it’s like to work in commercial kitchens along with the stirring story of Achatz’s fight for his life." — Library Journal
