Read full description of the books Sous Chef: 24 Hours in the Kitchen:
'Put a new pan down. Season the bass. Always from a height. The bass goes in. A monk looks done. Give it the cake tester. It's barely warm. Another minute. To the pass with it. A pan is too hot. The oil smells scorched. Start again. Burner at full tilt. Now for the mussels. They jump in the oil. Aromas flourish. On with more gambas. On with more pans. On with more burners. Scrape down the plancha. Towel your brow. Printers buzz. A new pick. Six more fish. Your legs are tired. Tickets blur.' Sous Chef takes you behind the swinging doors of a busy restaurant kitchen, allowing you to inhabit this normally hidden world, in real time. Follow chef from the moment he opens the kitchen in the morning as he guides you through the meticulous preparation, the camaraderie in the hours leading up to service and the adrenalin-rush as the orders start coming in. Thrilling, addictive and bursting with obsessive detail, Sous Chef will leave you breathless and awestruck - walking into a restaurant will never be the same again.
