Talking With My Mouth Full
My Life as A Professional EaterBook - 2012
When Gail Simmons first graduated from college, she felt hopelessly lost. What was she going to do? A family friend gave her some invaluable advice--make a list of what you love to do, and let that be your guide. Gail wrote down four words: Eat. Write. Travel. Cook. Little did she know, those four words would become the basis for a career as a professional eater, cook, food critic, magazine editor, and television star. Today, she's the host of Top Chef: Just Desserts, permanent judge on Top Chef, and Special Projects Director at Food & Wine magazine. She travels all over the world, eats extraordinary food, and meets fascinating people. She's living the dream. This book follows her unusual and inspiring path to success, examining the somewhat unconventional but always satisfying journey she has taken in order to create a career that didn't even exist when she first started working toward it.--From publisher description.
