Grant Achatz is driven to be one of the best chefs in the world. His restaurant Alinea in Chicago is a perennial top pick as the best in America, and in the top half of the world's top ten. This is his story from working in his parents restaurant, up through the ranks to hi current position. It's a fascinating read in determination, grit, and ingenuity. That he survived fourth stage tongue cancer as well, is both inspirational and mind boggling.If you'd like to see what he's up to in the kitchen, take a look through his cookbook Alinea. Fun to look at, but probably too difficult for most home cooks.
