Description

Kitchen Confidential reveals what Bourdain calls "twenty-five years of sex, drugs, bad behavior and haute cuisine."
Last summer, The New Yorker published Chef Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Bourdain spared no one's appetite when he told all about what happens behind the kitchen door. Bourdain uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable book, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike. From Bourdain's first oyster in the Gironde, to his lowly position as dishwasher in a honky tonk fish restaurant in Provincetown (where he witnesses for the first time the real delights of being a chef); from the kitchen of the Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center, to drug dealers in the east village, from Tokyo to Paris and back to New York again, Bourdain's tales of the kitchen are as passionate as they are unpredictable. Kitchen Confidential will make your mouth water while your belly aches with laughter. You'll beg the chef for more, please.

    Bourdain has always had a remarkable way with words. He spoke poetry. The way he saw things was one of beauty, honesty, appreciation and worldliness. In love with this book. Rest In Peace Anthony Bourdain.

    Anthony writes like he lives honestly and imperfectly. The honesty is what makes this really great. He is not afraid to show his humanity in the rough and tumble restaurant businesses. A unique insiders look you can feel the heat and intensity in the kitchen as they try to get some good food out fast. I never ate his food but I bet it is honestly good.

    This book charters Tony's zenful, uncomplicated, open-minded and rewarding love for the limitless varieties of food delicacies from different background and cultures that begins from his childhood's travel to France country side to his sentimentality towards his sous chefs and the crew of hard working and often ignored line cooks from South America whom he worked with for over two decades in the restaurant business in the NY city.
