free ead ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub í Gabrielle Hamilton

On my copy of this book there was a gushing uote from anthony bourdain magnificent simply gushing uote from Anthony Bourdain Magnificent Simply best memoir by a chef ever EverI espectfully disagree I thought Gabrielle Hamilton s memoir was uneven and a bit messy Some parts were well written and engaging and other parts were so tedious that I couldn t wait to be done with the book Sometimes Gabrielle explains herself well other times she is maddeningly vague and obtuse She comes across as both empathetic and also arrogant Some stories made her sound so cocky and bitter that it was hard to sympathize when her marriage went southThis memoir covers Gabrielle s childhood her lessons in cooking from her French mother her early experiences of working in the food service industry her time in graduate school her adventure of opening up Prune her estaurant in New York s East Village her love affairs and her marriage to an Italian man There are some juicy stories here there are beautiful descriptions of food there are some thoughtful passages on finding meaning in life and work and elationships There were also times when I was so frustrated with the author that I considered abandoning the book Now that I am finished I am glad I ead this memoir but it was not a wholly enjoyable experience Sort of like a good meal with an obnoxious dinner companion I d still like to visit her estaurant though Toward the end of Hamilton s interminable chef memoir she admits to having a certain sense of Gallic superiority to the est of the world Hoo boy is that an understatement While Hamilton s ecollections of her unconventional childhood and ise to celebrity as the owner of Prune offer up a credible pastiche of MFA style literary writing the author s personality is so off putting that I found the book nearly unreadableWhen Hamilton is talking about cooking or about the estaurant industry and its uirks she s very nearly engaging that is if one can overlook her arty tendency to switch between first person past and second person present tense narrative on th Whenever I ead an autobiography I find myself asking these two basic uestions1 Can they write2 Is their life interesting enough to warrant a book Because I ll be honest mine is notTo the first uestion Hamilton can write She earned an MFA for whatever you think that s worth I enjoyed both the crispiness of the details as
Well Their Selection And Amount 
their selection and amount was also good at analyzing herself her life s trajectory and the food industryRegarding the second uestion I had mixed feelings The primary focus of the book is her varied culinary career She begins in the kitchen of her French mother and with her jobs waitressing moves on to the drudgery of catering companies describes the creation of her own estaurant and its inspirations and ends cooking withfor in laws at their Italian villa The former sections were okay for me It was the last two stages that I found most interesting likely because my husband and I enjoy going to estaurants and pretending to be gourmands or we did before we had children As the waiter explains in painstaking detail that the duck is prepared in the insert method way and the mushrooms are from insert exotic locale we nod and nod as though we understand It. Before Gabrielle Hamilton opened her acclaimed New York estaurant Prune she spent twenty hard living years trying to find purpose and meaning in her life Blood Bones Butter follows an unconventional journey through the many kitchens Hamilton has inhabited through the years the ural kitchen of her Was beneficial to have the perspective of an actual connoisseur And husband the gig is upThere was also a good deal about her personal life during which my interest fluctuated dramatically I was a straight laced kid so the tales of her ebellious youth could be titillating But I did feel that the childhood section was drawn out Thereafter I thought she held back She had a large family growing up yet only spoke of a few members as an adult What happened She has or had an unconventional elationship with her husband She offhandedly mentioned that they didn t move in together after their courthouse wedding and were they didn t move in together after their courthouse wedding and were living apart when she gave birth to their first child I wanted of that I feel invasive asking for such details of a stranger s life and her family s but the memoir didn t feel complete without themI agree that it was ight for the food to be the focus And I can imagine her publisher enforcing this emphatically Yet I would have appreciated at least better allocation of the personal word count less childhood and explanation of monumental adult elationshipsUltimately the best way to gauge one s eaction to this book is probably to ask a third uestion 3 Do you want to
Eat At Hamilton S Restaurant 
at Hamilton s estaurant next time I am in New York sure I d like to go Although given the success of her book it might be a oyal pain to get a dinner eservation I often ate books but seldom actually comment on them I also arely give a book one star so I feel I must justify it a little So the subtitle is the Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef That s a little misleading I didn t eally notice any eluctance Every job she ever had was in food service And in her only non food experiment the MFA she ended up deciding she d ather be in food service With the exception of a few early stories about her mother she eally didn t explain any of her food education either She kept saying how hard the job was and how she had put in her time but after the stories about her mother she just listed the estaurants she worked in but didn t espect the caterers she she worked for and didn t espect the MFA caterers she didn t espect and a andom lucky incident that led to her own estaurant Where was the education It did seem inadvertent however which I guess is a good thing Also and maybe this is what eally disappointed me her book took me from eally wanting to try her estaurant to never wanting to try her estaurant During the course of the book among other things she 1 Lied to get her jobs2 Stole large amounts from her employers and spent the money on coke3 Didn t have the decency to treat a girlfriend of many years with espect on the way to an unfortunate break up4 Married a man she admitted she didn t love and didn t eally try to who married as a form of performance art and then lamented the fact "that she didn t have a picture perfect elationship with him and couldn t co opt his family "she didn t have a picture perfect elationship with him and couldn t co opt his family Spent an hour driving around brooklyn in a low blood sugar induced age yelling at her spouse in front of her small children ather than eat a mediocre mealBy the end of the book the author struck me as short tempered self absorbed and willing to hurt others on a whim While I m sure her.

Restaurant is very good the portrait she has drawn of
Herself Does Not Seem Trustworthy 
does not seem trustworthy has left a lot of wreckage in her wake and there is nothing at the end to make me feel better No bit of self examination that gives me hope that she s changing She is certainly a strong person and I praise her for her success And its her life so she certainly she shouldn t change if she s happy the way she is But I can t help but have a suspicion during some lean year her willingness to bend the ules and hurt people will eventually migrate into her kitchen And I don t want to be eating at her estaurant when it happens Once a sauce breaks it s almost impossible to bring it back together again Chefs have their tricks but even with tricks there s no guarantee and no guarantee the sauce will hold Most likely it won t The unfortunate separation in Blood Bones Butter occurs at the half way mark Of course I write this at the isk of being way too clever and maybe it is but I m saddened that Chef Gabrielle Hamilton wasn t able to hold her memoir together She had me totally had me for the first 158 pages of this 291 page book Pages are for the eview copy In those pages a wild child thrives in an eccentric and artisticbohemian family struggles through her parents failed marriage sets out on her own and makes just about every mistake a ebel could make and then begins to find herself in the sensual and spiritual world of kitchen work Chef Gabrielle has a life long spiritual affinity with food and service and tells wonderful sometimes harrowing stories as she starves her way through Europe slogs her way through the horrors of tourist trap kitchens and industrial catering slugs her way through a creative writing program and finally finds herself the naive but enthusiastic owner of her own estaurant I was pretty sure I d fallen in love with her Then at page 159 and upon meeting her husband to be her education inadvertent as it may have been as a chef eluctant as she may have been ends The second half of the memoir is the story of the first half of a marriage doomed to failure It s odd but the story doesn t esolve except in some weird slump of esignation somehow maybe she mentions the fact or alludes to it I knew the marriage was going to end but we don t get there and we e left hanging half way through The story the Chef decides to tell has its MOMENTS AND THE BEST OF THEM ARE AROUND FOOD and the best of them are around food her husband s family but the stories become epetitive as do the ever widening cracks in the marriage and the 130 some pages become an endless series of poor me s It s a story of a slow suffocation not pleasant beyond a chef s education and the necessary personal pronouns of memoir get eally eally tiresome Chef Gabrielle even spends the bulk of a chapter telling us what she should have said at a conference at the CIA on women in the estaurant profession A chapter of second thoughts That s where she eally started to loose me and though I hoped for some writerlyculinary magic that would bring the sauce back together ultimately I wanted the book to end and I didn t care how What a shame The education of a chef was interesting soulful and moving the education of a wife and mother wasn Itchen of her Italian mother in law who serves as the link between Hamilton’s idyllic past and her own future family the esult of a prickly marriage that nonetheless yields lasting dividends By turns epic and intimate Gabrielle Hamilton’s story is told with uncommon honesty grit humor and passio. .
