about

Featuring recipes and cooking tricks from world-renowned chefs, interspersed with the radically counterintuitive advice Ferriss's fans have come to expect, The 4-Hour Chef is a practical but unusual guide to mastering food and cooking, whether you are a seasoned pro or a blank-slate novice.Beyond that, it is designed to be "the cookbook for people who don't buy cookbooks." The 4-Hour Chef will teach Ferriss's approach to learning any skill in minimum time, which is what his more than one million monthly blog readers have most requested he write about for nearly five years. Readers of this new book, using food as a vehicle, will learn the art and science of meta-learning-the skill of learning skills.Last but not least, this book also refines and showcases the very best recipes and hacks based on Ferriss's The Slow-Carb Diet, which hundreds of thousands of his readers around the world have tested for performance enhancement and fat loss (many have lost more than one hundred pounds since December 2010).

Editorial Reviews

'Tim Ferriss distills kitchen wisdom like a rotary evaporator on power surge. The results are potent, lucid, and delicious.' - Nick Kokonas, Co-Owner, Alinea, Next, The Aviary 'Wildly inventive.. [a] rangy, obsessive immersion in food and its many wonders. [T]he tools needed to learn to cook well can be deployed in every manner of endeavor, from skinning a deer to memorizing a deck of cards. The author distills them into minimal, learnable units and examines how to order the units so as to keep readers engaged in their endeavors. Ferriss is a beguiling guide to this process, at once charmingly smart aleck-y and deadly serious, and he aims to make readers knowledgeable and freethinking.' - Kirkus Reviews
