Description:

A hilariously funny cookbook-cum-how-I-did-it memoir by the chef-restaurateur who created New Yorks' dazzling Apizz restaurant.


At the age of 37, John LaFemina left a lucrative career as a jeweler to become a chef. Instead of going back to school, or getting on-the-job training, he did it the hard way: he bought a restaurant and then taught himself to cook.


In this gorgeous cookbook, he not only shares scores of recipes, but describes his life as a Canarsie boy learning about meatballs and macaroni in his mother's kitchen. LaFemina takes us step-by-step through the process of finding the perfect location (and figuring out how many meatballs you have to sell to pay the rent), designing a restaurant, procuring all the necessary permits and licenses, and creating the menu.
