Do NOT buy this book if you're looking for recipes, anecdotes, or warm and fuzzy tales of communal mastication. This is not a memoir written by a world-renowned, critically-acclaimed chef. It is not the story of a life before rising to fame.
Laminating Daniel is the candid recounting of the sometimes-sobering experiences and generally-intoxicated escapades, from Arizona to New York and back again, of one who's spent more than two decades in the food service industry with little to no formal recognition. Which is probably something much closer to what most kitchen folks tend to experience.
DO buy this book if you grew up watching PBS cooking shows and Food Network before everything became a competition. DO buy this book if you are also not a world-renowned, critically acclaimed chef, cook, baker, server, bartender, dishwasher, manager, owner, foodie, gourmand, gourmet, wannabe, burnout, delivery driver, sales rep, porter, mechanic, or all-around maintenance guy. Also, DO buy this book if you just want to buy it, and feel free to give it as a gift to anyone and everyone you think might find it enjoyable deplorable adorable.
