Description

A deliciously entertaining memoir about one woman's adventures in the student kitchens of the legendary French Culinary Institute--flavored with celebrity chefs, eccentric characters, and mouthwatering recipesTo anyone who has ever dreamed of life in a French kitchen, Katherine Darling serves up a savory dose of reality in this funny, fascinating, and altogether delightful account of her time spent slaving over a hot stove, wrestling with veal calves, and cleaning fish heads at The French Culinary Institute. As she goes from clueless amateur to certified chef, Katherine and her quirky fellow students frequently find themselves the objects of scorn as their teachers wage psychological warfare over steaming pots of bisque. It's a cutthroat world, and no one ever made a souffle without breaking a few eggs--or cracking a few heads together. Filled with delicious food lore and trivia, and including dozens of classic and original French recipes, Under the Table takes readers deep into the trenches of one of the world's most prestigious cooking schools--and shows what really goes on behind the doors of every great restaurant kitchen.
