I have just finished a book, Blood, Bones & Butter (Random House, 2011) by Gabrielle Hamilton. The author is a the chef and owner of a restaurant called Prune in New York City's East Village. The book is a memoir that has a few surprising twists and turns.
The New Yorker and Bon Appetit.
The second book I have just started is Onward How Starbucks Fought for Its Life without Losing Its Soul (Rodale Books, 2011) by Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz. I have read a couple of Schultz's other bestsellers and the story and message in each have been pretty much the same. And, why not? It is what has made his company the success that it is today.
