Don't Try This at Home Culinary Catastrophes from the World's Greatest Cooks and Chefs Synopsis

In this raucous new anthology, thirty of the world's greatest chefs relate outrageous true tales from their kitchens.

A delicious reminder that even the chefs we most admire aren't always perfect, Don't Try This at Home is a must-have for anyone who loves food - or the men and women who masterfully prepare it.
