A boy in the Czech Republic lost his family in WWI, lost his Aunt and his home when she died, and became an apprentice to bakers at a pastry shop in grammar school.  While he learned, he was beaten by the men there until he could not walk…. but he cooked in the best mansions in Hollywood and became White House Executive Chef. His story was lost when his book went out of print.

The Lost History of Chef Francois Rysavy

His childhood will bring you to tears, as will his delicious blueberry pie. He was the White House Chef, buts hes been forgotten until now. He was an incredible world class traveler and war survivor.
