Summary "From the moment she opened her first bar, Jen Agg knew she could only be her own boss from then on. I Hear She's a Real Bitch tells the story of how she fought her way through the patriarichal service industry and made it happen, from getting her first job pouring drinks all the way to starting Toronto's culinary revival and running some of Canada's most famous restaurants. And she shares what she learned through years of hard work and learning from her mistakes: how to run a great restaurant that's also a great business."-- Provided by publisher.
