A James Beard Rising Star semifinalist included in Zagat's "30 Hottest Chefs Under 30" and Forbes's "30 Under 30," acclaimed chef Jesse Schenker has rocketed to the top of the culinary world. But his epic rise masks a little-known past filled with demons and obsession, genius and mania.
In this startling and down-to-earth memoir, he lays it all on the table for the first time, coming clean about his insatiable appetite for the extreme-which has led to his biggest triumphs and failures-and shares the shocking story of his turbulent life. All or Nothing is a candid exploration of the manic culture of some of the world's most celebrated kitchens. A drug-fueled, anxiety-ridden epic, it reads like a rollicking rock-and-roll memoir-with amazing food.
