"@ladylinecook writes with the same frank honesty that the late, great Anthony Bourdain did. Already many chapters in and I'm loving it. So many relatable stories as a cook. Savage stuff." -Instagram reader
"If you ever wanted to work in a kitchen or do work in a kitchen then you should read this book. It had me laughing and relating to many of the issues here as I have worked in kitchens my whole life. It is the real deal, and the author is so authentic in telling the story. It will be hard to put this down once you get started especially if you are a chef. -Amazon verified review
"So many of the memoirs that hit the bestseller charts are written by celebrities, global CEOs, or politicians who whilst being uniquely talented and deserving successful in their own right, can often perpetuate the feeling that to be heard is something reserved for those at the top. 'Nice Work, Boys!' gives voice to the every person, the every day occurrences that all women, of all backgrounds, at all levels experience." -Editorial Review for "Nice Work, Boys!"
"I'm a slow reader cause I'm not big on reading... but when I do pick this book up I have a hard time putting it down. I haven't finished it yet, but the way things are described and talked about, I get it. I know that feeling. Being in the weeds, getting your a** handed to you in service, but still somehow coming out with good times and making it happen. It's a rush, and this has been fun to read! It's inspired me to want to write about my time in the kitchen as a pastry chef forced to be a line cook! Like these stories are funny, they're relatable, and their honest. If you've worked in the industry, want to work in the industry, or just want to read about something that you never thought actually happened in kitchens... grab a copy and dive in." - Verified reader
"...this book is not just about cuisine. It's about life." - Amazon reviewer
