Matt Lee and Ted Lee take on the competitive, wild world of high-end catering, exposing the secrets of a food business few home cooks or restaurant chefs ever experience.
Hotbox reveals the real-life drama behind cavernous event spaces and soaring white tents, where cooking conditions have more in common with a mobile army hospital than a restaurant. Known for their modern take on Southern cooking, the Lee Brother's steeped themselves in the catering business for four years, learning the culture from the inside-out. Its a realm where you find eccentric characters, working in extreme conditions, who must produce magical events and instantly adapt when, for instance, the host's toast runs a half-hour too long, a hail storm erupts, or a rolling rack of hundreds of ice cream desserts goes wheels-up.
Whether they're dashing through black-tie fundraisers, celebrity-spotting at a Hamptons cookout, or following a silverware crew at 3:00 a.m. in a warehouse in New Jersey, the Lee Brother's guide you on a romp from the inner circle - the elite team of chefs using little more than their wits and Sterno to turn out lamb shanks for eight hundred to the outer reaches of the industries that facilitate the most dazzling galas. You'll never attend a party or entertain on your own in the same way after reading this book.
"Hotbox is the Kitchen Confidential of the big-ticket catering world."
