Description:

Hardcover. 672 pages. The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life builds upon Timothy Ferrisss internationally successful 4-hour series by transforming the way we cook, eat, and--most important--learn. Ferriss, nominated as one of Fast Companys Most Innovative Business People of 2007 and Forbes magazines Names You Need to Know in 2011, is author of the 1 New York Times best sellers The 4-Hour Body and The 4-Hour Workweek, the latter of which has been translated into 35 languages and has been on the New York Times Best Sellers list for more than four years unbroken. Featuring recipes and cooking tricks from world-renowned chefs, interspersed with the radically counterintuitive advice Ferrisss 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 dont buy cookbooks. The 4-Hour Chef will teach Ferrisss approach to learning any skill in minimum time, which is what his 1, 000, 000 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 Ferrisss 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 100 pounds since December 2010). This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780547884592

Synopsis:

?If you crossed Jason Bourne with Julia Child, you?d end up with Tim Ferriss.? ? Marco Canora, Chef-Partner of Hearth & Terroir

?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

"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

WHAT IF YOU COULD BECOME WORLD-CLASS IN ANYTHING IN 6 MONTHS OR LESS?

The 4-Hour Chef isn?t just a cookbook. It?s a choose-your-own-adventure guide to the world of rapid learning.

#1 New York Times bestselling author (and lifelong non-cook) Tim Ferriss takes you from Manhattan to Okinawa, and from Silicon Valley to Calcutta, unearthing the secrets of the world?s fastest learners and greatest chefs. Ferriss uses cooking to explain ?meta-learning,? a step-by-step process that can be used to master anything, whether searing steak or shooting 3-pointers in basketball. That is the real ?recipe? of The 4-Hour Chef.

You'll train inside the kitchen for everything outside the kitchen. Featuring tips and tricks from chess prodigies, world-renowned chefs, pro athletes, master sommeliers, super models, and everyone in between, this ?cookbook for people who don?t buy cookbooks? is a guide to mastering cooking and life.

The 4-Hour Chef is a five-stop journey through the art and science of learning:

1. META-LEARNING. Before you learn to cook, you must learn to learn. META charts the path to doubling your learning potential.

2. THE DOMESTIC. DOM is where you learn the building blocks of cooking. These are the ABCs (techniques) that can take you from Dr, Seuss to Shakespeare.

3. THE WILD. Becoming a master student requires self-sufficiency in all things. WILD teaches you to hunt, forage, and survive.

4. THE SCIENTIST. SCI is the mad scientist and modernist painter wrapped into one. This is where you rediscover whimsy and wonder.

5. THE PROFESSIONAL. Swaraj, a term usually associated with Mahatma Gandhi, can be translated as ?self-rule.? In PRO, we?ll look at how the best in the world become the best in the world, and how you can chart your own path far beyond this book.
