あらすじ・解説

When Marco Pierre White's mother died when he was just six years old, it transformed his life. Soon his father was urging him to earn his own keep, and by 16 he was working in his first restaurant. White went on to learn from some of the best chefs in the country, such as Albert Roux, Raymond Blanc and Pierre Koffmann.

He survived the intense pressure of hundred-hour weeks in the heat of the kitchen, developed his own style and then struck out on his own.

At Harveys in Wandsworth, which he opened in 1987, he developed a reputation as a stunning cook and a rock 'n' roll sex god of the kitchen. But he was also a man who might throw you out of his restaurant, and his temper was legendary, as younger chefs such as Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal would find out when they worked for him.

He eventually opened several more restaurants, won every honour going and then realised that it still wasn't enough.

Here, Marco takes the reader right into the heat of the kitchen with a sharp-edged wit and a sizzling pace that will fascinate anyone brave enough to hit "play" on this book and enter his domain.

He's not the Devil that he makes out he is!

What did you like most about The Devil in the Kitchen?

The honesty, intensity, passion and humour that runs throughout this book...

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Devil in the Kitchen?

There are several that stand out, but dealing with the great British public was his forte!

Have you listened to any of Timothy Bentinck’s other performances? How does this one compare?

At first I was not sure, but he does a very good job, in fact he was really good and his various accents were brilliant...

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, not at all as there was so much going on and I had to re-visit several times

Any additional comments?

Marco is a great character, full of energy (Well he was then) with a great sense of fun and humour as well as his determination which was manic.
If you want to be a good chef kiss goodbye to the family life...
Looking forward to his new series on TV starting this week 5/10/15...

Addictive story about a brute that matures..or?

Being a world class chef this book connects the dots of a interesting person. The early years was very interesting and the story gripping. Marco did not get anything for free. That said he is a full-fledged perfectionist bully working his way thru the business. I love this book, very well read as well. Thanks Marco.

Surprisingly engrossing

Not the type of book I would normally be interested in but it came up on the 2 for 1 offers, so I gave it a chance.
Very engrossing and detailed look at the life of Marco and the life of a chef. Would highly recommend.

I used to admire this chef....

Now I don’t. The story started off really well, then after becoming well known and winning Michelin stars he seemed to become a pompous ill mannered uncouth boor. How does one tip a plate of soup down a chefs jacket because the soup was cold? And then still brag about it? And that’s after HE stuck his finger in the soup to check if it was cold? Gross! The first thing to shock me in the book was how he slagged off his second wife. What a kiss and tell. Gentlemen don’t do that. Toad! Then he goes off and slags off Gordon Ramsey and his mentor Albert. And cuts ties with them. And slags them off again. This is obviously the story of a very sad man.

My favourite book to date!

loved every second of this and I'm not even a cook. Well read/delivered with fun, humour, anger, sadness, excitement, remorse and enough culinary tease bits to keep any chef entertained for hours. Marco seems a proper down to earth bloke who not only made it in life, but I for one would love to have a beer with one day to hear more of these stories of a man dedicated to a certain lifestyle in the kitchen/out. Thank-you, cannot highly recommend enough!

Fascinating insight into sheer genius.

This book will keep you entertained from start to finish. It does not linger with rambling detail - it’s all highly captivating. Great for a group of friends to listen to on a long car journey. Very funny with many emotional twists and turns. I’ve listened twice now! Very good narration - sounds similar to how I imagine Marco would have narrated this. The only thing that would have made it any better is if he had!

Great story and great performance

Whether you like celebrity chefs or not this is a great autobiography. Great story of a troubled working class lad with an unhealthy obsession for culinary perfection who tries to run away from his demons.
Preferred this to Gordon Ramsay’s ‘Humble Pie’ (which is also good) as this story was more authentic.
The book was made all the better by a great narration that brings to life the story and surrounding characters.

Mmmmmm..

Interesting story so far as listening to a persons life and deciding you would not go out of your way to get near him. Very self absorbed and one sided life.

MPW

Enjoyed personal story of someone who relentlessly pursued their goal to be the best of the best.

I wasn’t aware until listening to this how profoundly successful he was - the first ever British chef to gain 3 Michelin stars, and the youngest in the world.

Great performance also, the narrator tells it like he was there.
