Ravi Howard is a good friend, and a master at creating fictionalized accounts based on true experiences. This is his newest work, published just last year in 2015, and it's just as gripping as his first book. This time, Ravi focuses on Nat King Cole, another man I admire.
I like how Hilton Als deals with issues of gender in this book. It made me pause and think numerous times while I was reading. I am constantly thinking about these themes especially in the culinary world where women are really becoming more and more empowered and important to the industry.
The culinary world was devastated when we lost Charlie Trotter in 2013, but I am glad that his cookbooks live on. His first book was published in the nineties and really helped to secure his place as one of the great chefs on the end of the millennium.
