The Sharper Your Knife, The Less You Cry: Love, Laughter, and Tears at the World's Most Famous Cooking School is the true story of a former corporate woman's determination to pursue her dream--a diploma from the renowned Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in Paris. Caught amid a morass of short-tempered chefs, fiercely competitive students, and her own sadly inadequate command of French, she nonetheless learned how to gut fish and behead rabbits as well as apply the great techniques of French cuisine. Two dozen recipes pepper this amazing insider's view, but The Sharper Your Knife, The Less You Cry also extends beyond the kitchen into the amazing markets, shops, and avenues of Paris. An ebullient saga of self-discovery and learning what really matters, as well as an amazing tour-de-force of where chefs (iron or otherwise) come from.
