Summary

"Always be hungry, Owen," the Chef said softly. "Don't ever let life just wash over you. Savor it - every smell, every taste, every sound. That's rule one, Owen: Taste everything."

Owen Devon used to have a pretty good life. At least until a few months ago, when disaster struck his family. Now his grades are plunging and his life is spiraling out of control.

To make matters worse, he's just been tagged for vandalism - and to repay the damage, he's being put to work for the crusty old owner of the local diner. But there's a lot about the old man that Owen doesn't know - and in this diner's cramped little kitchen, he's going to learn a lot more than how to cook an excellent meal....

From eight-time Culinary Olympian Chef Charles Carroll and New York Times best-selling author John David Mann (The Go-Giver) comes a tale of heartbreak and redemption, about a boy who learns to overcome tragedy and carve out a life of excellence and honor through cooking lessons at the hands of a retired chef. Blending poignant storytelling with vivid culinary detail, The Recipe offers listeners a compelling recipe for personal greatness.

Throughout the story the listener also learns key cooking concepts, cutting techniques, and other practical secrets of the kitchen. Includes a complete set of recipes for dishes cooked in the story.
