    DescriptionIn this indispensable companion to the smash hit "Don't Try This at Home," forty great chefs, including Mario Batali, Eric Ripert, and Fergus Henderson, share pivotal moments of their culinary educations. Before he was a top chef, Tom Colicchio learned to love cooking while he slung burgers at a poolside snack bar. Barbara Lynch tells the story of lying her way into her first chef's job and then needing to cook her way out of trouble in the galley kitchen of a ship at sea. Stories of mentorship abound: Rick Bayless tells the story of finally working with Julia Child, his childhood hero; Gary Danko of earning the trust of the legendary Madeleine Kamman. "How I Learned to Cook" is an irresistible treat, a must-have for anyone who loves food and wants a look into the lives the men and women who masterfully prepare it.
