20070929ditk.jpgIn our never-ending efforts to liven up your weekend here at Serious Eats, we're giving away five copies of Marco Pierre White's memoir, The Devil in the Kitchen.

Londoner White is perhaps the world's first badboy chef, but unlike some badboy chefs, the man is a brilliant culinary talent who has inspired the likes of Mario Batali and Anthony Bourdain. His book is an unflinchingly honest account of his tragedy and triumph-filled life, from losing his mother as a young boy, to his ultimate uber success as a 3-star Michelin chef; and finally his profound disillusionment with the whole star chef culture. This is no by-the-numbers chef memoir. David Kamp gave it a rave review in the New York Times Sunday book review.

The book makes it clear that, through it all, White could be a terror in the kitchen, so to enter to win a copy of Devil in the Kitchen, tell us who the devil in your kitchen is, that is, who do you find it hardest to cook with?

Winners will be chosen at random from among the comments, and the contest will close Monday at 6 p.m. ET. The usual Serious Eats contest rules apply.
