A suspense-filled, expletive-laced comedy sizzling with sparkling banter and second chances
In the cultural collision of a restaurant kitchen, Chef George, trying to stay sober, spends his shifts yelling at trash-talking Guatemalan line cooks, a wet-behind-the-ears American busboy, and a quiet East African dishwasher. But the heat turns up when an immigration agent arrives. How to Use a Knife bursts with hilarity, suspense, machismo, and surprises, as secrets from the past come to a boil.
