Each profile reveals what skills and experience (if any) you need to get started, answers frequently asked questions, and includes resources for more information and networking. The book also includes over 100 charming and informative personal essays written by food industry greats such as Jacques Pepin, David Rockwell, Danny Meyer, Sylvia Weinstock, and many others.
