A new book, Knives & Ink, interviews some of America's most well-respected chefs, such as Dominique Crenn, Sean Telo and Danny Bowien, about the reasons behind their ink. Some tell of their love for the kitchen or their mums, some tell of stupid events, and some have little reason at all. Here are a few of our favourites.
Knives & Ink by Isaac Fitzgerald & Wendy MacNaughton, published by Bloomsbury ($29.99). Out now.
