Chef Chris Nicosia, Sassi

Just started Dan Brown's Inferno. It's the first time in a long time that I'm reading something that isn't industry-related.

Chef Jeff Pilditch, Bistro 24

Smoke and Pickle by Chef Edward Lee, who is best known for his appearance on season nine of Top Chef. It's a great read filled with tales of Lee's experience in the restaurant world and highlights of his Louisville-style Southern cooking.

Christopher Gross, Chef and Owner, Christopher's Restaurant & Crush Lounge

White Truffles for Winter [by N.M. Kelby]. It's about chef Auguste Escoffier. Great historical info as well as fiction.

Greg LaPrad, Chef and Owner, Overland Trout, Sonoita

I'm currently reading Chasing the Chiles: Hot Spots along the Pepper Trail by Gary Nabham. Up next is Michael Pollan's Cooked. Hopefully I'll have some time to fit in some Robert Heinlein novels.
