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!
