you know how every time you watch HGTV, the couple looking for the house says they want hardwood floors, open concept and a “chef’s kitchen”? well those people are idiots. a chef’s kitchen is not granite countertops and huge islands with all stainless steel everything. chef’s kitchens are messy. they’re raw. they’re overflowing with knives and appliances and pots and pans. they kind of look like this.
nearly a decade after this book came out, i finally picked it up. the movie popped up on hbo go the other day and i was tempted to watch, but i have this weird guilt-pang every time i think about watching a movie before reading the book. it sucks. it means i avoid a lot of movies.
