Chef Jonah Miller was twenty-four and in a hurry – so he quit his sous chef job and opened his own restaurant, Huertas, in New York City’s East Village. Generation Chef is the story of that dream come true – even when reality is less than dreamy – and some legendary restaurateurs have this to say about it:
"Stabiner has done more than tell the riveting story of one young chef on the cusp of stardom; she’s plunged us right into the bubbling epicenter of a culinary moment like no other. Witty and well-observed, Generation Chef isn’t just a book for New Yorkers or for the food-obsessed; it’s for anyone anywhere who loves a great read."

Chef/Owner Crafted Hospitality, Head Judge Top Chef
"Generation Chef is the warp-speed tale of passion on a plate, a frank inside look at a twenty-six year old chef who opens his first restaurant. Karen Stabiner has a sharp eye for the story inside the story – anyone with a big dream, whether it’s food or something else, will identify with what this chef has to do to make his come true."
Chef, author, philanthropist
"Karen Stabiner gives readers a corner table from which to observe the journey of today’s entrepreneur. Although its stories are rooted in restaurants, Generation Chef and the lessons it contains are an invaluable resource and reference for anyone with a start-up dream.”
