Boston, MA, May 20, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- New Word City LLC announces the publication of The Perfect Chef, a new eBook by the James Beard Award winning author Todd Kliman.
Restaurant critics are supposed to maintain their distance about chefs and restaurateurs. Or, so Kliman had always maintained. But when Peter Chang, an emigre genius capable of turning ordinary food into small miracles, crossed his radar, he couldn’t help himself. He becomes obsessed with Chang’s cooking. When it turns out that the chef possesses both a checkered past and an increasingly enigmatic present, jumping from restaurant to restaurant across the country, fleeing towns and expectations, and jilting both diners and restaurateurs, Kliman realizes he has gotten himself in deep - perhaps too deep. This is a fascinating, funny, page-turning tale of food and memory, of lust and betrayal.
