Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly (Paperback)
A deliciously funny, delectably shocking banquet of wild-but-true tales of life in the culinary trade from Chef Anthony Bourdain, laying out his more than a quarter-century of drugs, sex, and haute cuisine--now with all-new, never-before-published material.
About the Author
Anthony Bourdain is the author of the novels Bone in the Throat and Gone Bamboo, in addition to the mega-bestseller Kitchen Confidential and A Cook's Tour. He is the host of the popular television show No Reservations.
“Utterly riveting, swaggering with stylish machismo and precise ear for kitchen patois.”
-New York magazine
“You’ll laugh, you’ll cry...you’re gonna love it.”
“The kind of book you read in one sitting, then rush about annoying your coworkers by declaiming whole passages.”
Bourdain captures the world of restaurants and professionally cooked food in all its theatrical, demented glory.
A gonzo memoir of whats really going on behind those swinging doors.... Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain is unique.
Bourdain’s prose is utterly riveting, swaggering with stylish machismo and a precise ear for kitchen patois.
-New York magazine
Hysterical.... Bourdain gleefully rips through the scenery to reveal private backstage horrors.
-New York Times Book Review
