The Chef's Jacket

A Culinary Journey

by Raymond Hollanda

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Hard work, talent and culinary art are all part of Raymond Hollanda's story in this autobiography of a life focused on the pleasures of the table. The Chef's Jacket chronicles Hollanda's journey from his native Brazil to New York City, and the dedicated, energetic and thoughtful pursuit of his dream to become an Executive Chef.
If you have ever thought about becoming a Chef, Raymond's account of his career is a must read.  Watching cooking shows and competitions along with making great meals at home has little resemblance to the hard life of being a Chef. Raymond's insider view of the realities and the journey a young cook must take to become a Chef are honest, insightful, descriptive and above all motivating.  Until now there was little information to provide a real view into the business for aspiring cooks, this book should be required reading for anyone considering Culinary schools. Cooking is a vehicle for expressing love for others by delighting their pallet, lifting their mood, or soothing their pains. It is this passion that drives a Chef to endure the challenges that Raymond aptly describes. Raymond delivers a dose of reality, that every young culinarian should devour and will leave restaurant patrons a bit more thankful and in awe of the team behind their next great meal.

For the last twenty years, he has been Executive Chef at the Lotos Club in New York City.
