Foodie Freebie Friday: Under The Table

Welcome back from the weekend! Hope you had fun enjoying it where you are. My weekend was busy, but then again... what else is new?! The weather here in Chicago lately has been cold, cloudy and dreary with rain that you want to do nothing but to stay indoors. It makes for a perfect opportunity to curl up with a movie or even a good book!

I recently was asked to review a brand new book called, Under the Table: Saucy Tales from Culinary School written by Katherine Darling. If you're a fan of books that touch on the lives of chefs or even the popular reality tv series on Bravo, Top Chef, you'll definitely enjoy this book! I loved reading through Katherine Darling's experience in culinary school and it offers some insight about a whole new culture of aspiring chefs and bakers. It's a great read that I encourage any foodie out there to pick up! Here is how senior publicist, Kim Curtin, of Simon & Schuster describes the book...

Katherine Darling enrolled as a student at the legendary French Culinary Institute expecting to learn the mysterious secrets of French cooking. But as she soon learned, culinary school is no place for romantics - it's a cut-throat, raunchy, challenging world where the smallest mistake can bring on culinary catastrophe, or the humblest ingredients can create something heavenly.

This is a hot-off-the-press book which recently came out on April 14, 2009 and I would love for one of my readers to enjoy a brand new copy!
