Southerners know how to do breakfast right, and Currence has elevated it to an art form: dishes like Banana-Pecan Coffee Cake, Spicy Boudin and Poached Eggs, and Oyster Pot Pie are comforting, soulful, and packed with real Southern flavor. Big Bad Breakfast is full of delicious recipes that will make the day ahead that much better--not to mention stories of the wonderful characters who fill the restaurant every morning, and a meditation on why the Southern breakfast is one of America's most valuable culinary contributions,"

For Jonah Miller, being a chef is as compelling a dream as being a rock star or professional athlete. At twenty-four, he quits his job as a sous chef, creates a business plan, lines up investors, leases a space, hires a staff, and gets ready to put his reputation and his future on the line. His Basque restaurant, Huertas, is in New York City, the high-stakes center of the restaurant business for an ambitious young chef. Journalist and food writer Karen Stabiner takes us inside Huertas's roller-coaster first year, providing insight into the challenging world a young chef faces today: intense financial pressure, an overcrowded field of aspiring cooks, and the impact of reviews and social media, which can dictate who survives. A fast-paced narrative filled with suspense, and a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at drive and passion in one of today's hottest professions. -- adapted from publisher website.
