read on the airplane, and it did an admirable job for that precise purpose but there s one thing that s a real problem for this book About halfway through, he ends a chapter saying he has to leave New York to deal with personal demons Fine But he never mentions what they are were And the book is all under the guise of a kind of memoir If he s not going to tell the reader what those demons are, don t use it as a cliffhanger enticement to keep reading Not only is it suprem i got this Wow, I enjoyed this waythan I expected Onthan one occasion I ate lunch in my car so I could keep listening Hilarious, insightful, and mouth watering Buford s taste in food is just a bit different from mine I can t count the pounds of lardo that he consumes over the telling but his journey feels very kindred Amateur cook learns skills, travels to Italy, appreciates homemade traditional food Except he happens to be completely obsessive and surrounded by larger than life char Wow, I enjoyed this waythan I expected Onthan one occasion I ate lunch in my car so I could keep listening Hilarious, I started reading Heat without any prior knowledge of Mario Batali I d never cooked from any of his cookbooks, or seen his show That said, the book was an interesting look at his life an absolutely crazy one filled with gluttony, extreme restaurant hours and seemingly never ending partying.But the focus of the book is not only Batali although he steals the show, in my opinion Actually written by Bill Buford about his time spent in one of Batali s restaurant kitchens Babbo in NYC , Heat a I
