Summary ""A terrific, beautifully written, frank, and funny memoir, and a compelling argument for pulling down the long outdated system of 'bro' culture that has dominated the industry since what feels like the beginning of time." --Anthony Bourdain From the moment she opened her first bar, Jen Agg knew she could only be her own boss from then on. I Hear She's a Real Bitch tells the story of how she fought her way through the patriarichal service industry and made it happen, from getting her first job pouring drinks all the way to starting Toronto's culinary revival and running some of Canada's most famous restaurants. And she shares what she learned through years of hard work and learning from her mistakes: how to run a great restaurant that's also a great business. Readers that loved Gabrielle Hamilton's bestselling Blood, Bones, and Butter will devour this raw, uninhibited debut. Studded with Agg's frank and often hilarious observations on an industry in which sexism has been normalized, I Hear She's a Real Bitch is more than just a story about starting a restaurant: it is a rallying cry for a feminist revolution in the culinary world"-- Provided by publisher.
