Gail Simmons Autobiography-Tallking with My Mouth Full

  • 9

Has anyone read this yet? I saw the obligatory positive blurbs from the likes of Eric Ripert, David Chang (Really?), Giada, Jacques Pepin. But how is it really?

I'd be curious to see what Bourdain or Colicchio has to say about it.

  1. I heard Gail interviewed on CBC's Q last night and will say the interview made me more interested in the book- I was surprised to hear about some of the twists and turns she's taken in her career and am interested in reading more. Can't speak to the quality of writing, etc. without reading it.

    The interview was the last 20 minutes of the March 13th episode:

      I caught the tail end of that interview myself and it too piqued my interest.

    2. She seems pretty young to me to have published an autobio or memoir, but I wouldn't rule it out.

      1. I have the biggest girl-crush on Gail. I'll definitely read it.

        1. Saw her on CTV this a.m. and kept thinking about being up to here with celeb worship in all its ugly forms. While this is fly-weight stuff, who needs it?

          1. Just wondering if anyone ended up reading this and what they thought?
