The Cranky Old Chef
by Forrester Mitchell

Sandy MacLaren loves his family, his friends, his malt whisky, his food and his golf... Not necessarily in that order!

Sandy MacLaren is a Scottish chef and a golf addict. He often plays nine holes in the morning before his restaurant opens. That’s when the fun begins and his love of ‘a good walk spoiled’ competes for attention with family, friends, his cooking and many other aspects of a busy life.

The Cranky Old Chef is a humorous, frequently hilarious, collection of short stories and vignettes describing the experiences of Sandy and his family. Laugh as you observe him in his restaurant, where he can be very cranky if his standards are challenged. Follow him around the golf course and enjoy his triumphs and disasters. Laugh, too, at the experiences of his daughter, Morag, a medical student who takes her study of urology and gynaecology to a whole new level; discover how his son, Gordon, a golf professional, meets the girl of his dreams; and learn how his wife, Fiona, adds spice to their love life and gives him a big surprise!

'The Cranky Old Chef' is a follow up to the successful 'Cranky Old Golfers' which has been reprinted three times and last Christmas was Number 1 in Amazon's list of 'Golf Books Bestsellers.'

'Cranky Old Golfers is a wonderful collection of humorous and true-to-life observations related to those who have shared their ageing experience with the great game of golf'

Loved this book, great characters, shrewd observations and wonderful sense of humour, unless you're the easily offended type of course. I love a book where you feel you're the fly on the wall and are left wanting more and this book certainly delivers on both counts. More power to Mr Mitchell's pen!!
