Publisher Description

Sassy foodie Becca Stone is over her job taking reservations in one of London's most successful restaurant empires. So when she is unexpectedly catapulted into working as PA to celebrity chef Damien Malone, it seems like the opportunity of a lifetime.

Becca is quickly caught up in an exciting whirlwind of travel, reality TV and opening nights, and even her usually abysmal love life takes a turn for the better. But as Becca is slowly consumed by the chaos of life in the spotlight, she begins to lose touch with her friends, her heart and even with reality. Working with Damien has its challenges and she is soon struggling with his increasingly outrageous demands and sleazy advances, all while managing the ridiculous requests of his self-centred wife.  It takes a disastrous trip to Italy for Becca to realise that she may have thrown away exactly what she's been looking for all along.

Inspired by real-life adventures, this deliciously funny and romantic story reveals a tantalising glimpse of the trendy restaurant scene: a world where chefs are treated like rock stars, and cooking isn't all that goes on in the kitchen.

Reality t̶e̶l̶v̶i̶s̶i̶o̶n̶ book, great for a giggle!

What Lisa Joy has done for the foodie world with YES, Chef! is reminiscent of Ben Elton's take on the music industry in 'Chart Throb'. Enjoyable, insightful and down right fun.

I loved this story! Such a clever and entertaining read and hilariously accurate. Clever, funny & fun!

Yes Chef! was boring and I struggled to read it. Becca's life is no different from others. Who hasn't has a bad boss? Becca is a bitter character and I feel this story is an attack on the foodie world. The title is not original there are many other books called Yes chef . It seems like a lot of writers are cashing in on food stories. Please leave food books for the professionals like Jamie Oliver. Don't bother with this book highly disappointing. One star.
