      Thanks to NetGalley for providing an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.This was a wonderful and surprisingly quick read about the coming of age of a young chef I was drawn first by the book cover and then by the mouth watering descriptions of the dishes that Mauro has mastered throughout his journey The only issue I have is that I wish it s longer so we can enjoy Mauro s journey
