"He recalls his childhood by various foods and smells and takes you on a journey of how he first fell in love with cookery and how he came to have his first gay encounter with gardener and how that encounter eventually lead to his first job in a proper kitchen. The way he describes food is just pure poetry and how a simple smell of a food can take you back to past memories,unlike many story's his isn't filled with glitz and glamour or wild crazy experiences its just a simple tale of a basic childhood of a very humble man."
