Description

A singular, powerfully expressive debut memoir that traces one chef's struggle to find her place and what happens once she does.

Burn the Place is a galvanizing culinary memoir that chronicles Iliana Regan's journey from foraging on the family farm to opening her Michelin-starred restaurant, Elizabeth. Her story is alive with startling imagery, raw like that first bite of wild onion, and told with uncommon emotional power. It's a sure bet to be one of the most important new memoirs of 2019. 

Regan grew up the youngest of four headstrong girls on a small farm in Northwest Indiana. Even when she was picking raspberries as a toddler still in diapers, Regan understood to pick only the ripe fruit and leave the rest for another day. In the family's leaf-strewn fields, the orange flutes of chanterelles seemed to beckon her, while they eluded others. 

Regan has always had an intense, almost otherworldly connection with food and earth. Connecting with people, however, has always been harder. As she learned to cook in the farmhouse, got her first job in a professional kitchen at age 15, taught herself cutting-edge cuisine while running her "new forager" underground supper club, and worked her way from front-of-house staff to running her own kitchen, Regan often felt that she "wasn't made for this world." She was a little girl who longed to be a boy, gay in an intolerant community, an alcoholic before she turned 20, a woman in an industry dominated by men. 

Burn the Place will introduce listeners to an important new voice from the American culinary scene, an underrepresented perspective from the professional kitchen, and a young star chef whose prose is as memorable and deserving of praise as her food.

An Entropic Bloom...

Many friends used to ask me why I was so keen on eating at the best, seemingly eccentric, and most innovative restaurants wherever I travel and go.

It’s simple... these are my people. The miscreants, misanthropes, agitators, punks, dejected, and pests that breath vivaciousness, squeeze out imagination, and will entropic blooms of ideation into the dull causeways of everyday culture.

Iliana is that being. An Algrenian writer who learned how to hone and showcase her creative notions in the chaos of uncertainty, the hot tempered back-and-front rooms of hospitality, and in the face of adversity, self-procured, unsuspected, and self-effacing.

This is a memoir that makes me excited to be alive and having failed, awaiting my own success, knowing the long road to achievement is just another road... and that that is achieved is that that is perceived.

Her stories and memories are crisp, creeping, and quietly crowing, illuminating and bringing forth the humanity of a budding and soon-to-be star culinary creative.

I’m even more excited to eat her dishes now, as I am embarrassed to have run in orbiting social groups of hers with my peers constantly chirping to try out her Eats.

If you need a book to reconnect you with your own path and Earthbound anchorage... this is it.

Thank you Iliana.

Keep Cooking.

Stay Creative.

Great book and unique look into a passionate mind

I work in the food industry and enjoy getting a glimpse into the mind of a successful chef who devotes her life and passion into her career, exposing her insides , struggles with identity, and vulnerability for all to see. The stories are raw and real, unfiltered and entertaining, and relatable if you have worked in the business. A great writer. The narrator does a pretty good job also. (a few food terms are mispronounced though ) highly recommend

Lost interest

After she pulls out of alcoholism got a bit boring. I finally quit about hour an half before finishing. I found the cooking descriptions tedious. Just couldn’t keep interested.

Dull fast

This book started out with potential but got very dull very fast and more about her sex life than her life story
