A Wonka-Like Journey into an Ultra Private World of
Decadence and Excess

From cooking for Martha Stewart, P. Diddy, and Jerry Seinfeld to over 20 of the world’s most reclusive billionaires, Chef Neal Salisbury has been serving the world’s power elite for 15 years. His new book, The Billionaire’s Chef: Cooking for the Rich and Famished takes you on a most honest journey around the globe and into the rarefied world of working for, living, and travelling with today’s billionaires. You’ll find stories, tips on event planning and social etiquette, but that’s not all: The book goes beyond recipes and polite smile-inspiring vignettes and gets into the real-life challenges lived by Chef Neal and his peers. The book details the disappointments and unexpected triumphs, battles of ego, the money, the sex (or sometimes lack of it) coupled with loneliness—all a part of the job. Written with passion, love, and respect for craft and artistry, this book focuses on what is unique about the operation of a yacht, plane, Private Island or makeshift kitchen on a beach. Chef Neal offers an honest, yet surreal view of what it is like to have worked as a top private chef during the “Golden Age” of professionally crewed private luxury yacht building / cruising and grand estate renovation. Whether you read it for escapism, as a practical career reference, or to help you throw better events doesn’t really matter—just enjoy the trip.
