About the Book

Spiced is Dalia Jurgensens memoir of leaving her office job and pursuing her dream of becoming a chef. Eventually landing the job of pastry chef for a three-star New York restaurant, she recounts with endearing candor the dry cakes and burned pots of her early internships, and the sweat, sheer determination, and finely tuned taste budsas well as resilient ego and sense of humorthat won her spots in world-class restaurant kitchens. With wit and an appreciation for raunchy insults, she reveals the secrets to holding your own in male-dominated kitchens, surviving after-hours staff parties, and turning out perfect plates when you know youre cooking for a poorly disguised restaurant critic. She even confesses to a clandestine romance with her chef and bossnot to mention what its like to work in Martha Stewarts TV kitchenand the ugly truth behind the much-mythologized family meal. Following Dalias personal trajectory from nervous newbie to unflappable professional, Spiced is a clever, surprisingly frank, and affectionate glimpse at the sweet and sour of following your passion.
