Summary
One of the first lessons taught at Cook School is that you can achieve power through service. Troubled youths learn to be master chefs by bowing to decadence and whim, by offering up a part of themselves on every plate and it's a motto Zac takes to heart. A teenage boy with a difficult past, he throws himself into the world and work of haute cuisine. He has dreams of a future, of escaping the dead-end, no-hope lot of his fellow cooks. He wants to be the greatest chef the world has seen. He thinks he's taken his first steps when he becomes House Cook for a wealthy family. Never mind that the family may seem less than appreciative. Or refined. Or deserving. Power through service. But as the facade crumbles and his promised future looks unlikely to eventuate, Zac the Cook is forced to reassess everything. Sweet turns sour and ends in bitter revenge
Summary
Seventeen-year-old Zac is given a choice between going to a young offenders' institute or enrolling in a rehabilitation scheme to learn how to cook. He chooses the latter, and decides to succeed at it.
