    Loved the recipes and first hand food experiences. I’m going to make some of the recipes provided as PDF in the audible book.

Six chefs from various ethnic backgrounds tell what they do at their favourite holidays and each has also provided a personal choice recipe, the full details of which accompany How Chefs Holiday on a downloadable PDF document.Very pleasant background music accompanies the speakers: Carla Hall, Parma Lakshmi, Marcus Samuelsson, Mike Solomonov, Alex Guarnaschelli and Kuarne Onwuachi and the recipes provided include Mac 'n cheese for 15, Padma's buttermilk baked turkey, Roast beef with potatoes and green peppercorns, Granny's five flour pound cake, Helga's meatballs with braised cabbage and lingonberries, and potato latkes.I guess the reader has to be a little bit of a foodie to really enjoy this, but this is far more than just talk about what people eat, it's about family and memories stored in tradition. I loved it and, at only just over an hour in length, I'd recommend it to everyone.

    A quick and fun dive into the way some of America's most prominent Chefs spend their holidays. How their childhood holidays influenced their adulthood celebrations, what they keep at home, and what they share in their restaurants. Get your napkin ready, this will certainly have you drooling for holiday treats.

    I enjoyed learning about the holiday traditions of well-known chefs. Entertaining and relatable on a few levels. I hope to try one or more of the recipes included in the PDF. Thanks, Chefs and Audible! Recommended.

    Fun short listen of holiday memories of restaurant chefs. And as an extra audible gives a pdf with some holiday recipes from those chefs!

    Carla Hall was the most enjoyable to listen to, with Alex second. It was overall okay, but I won't listen again.
