New York Chef Tony Bourdain gives away secrets of the trade in his wickedly funny, inspiring memoir/expose. 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.

    Veramente molto bellino. Ben scritto, buffo, leggerissimo. Un diversivo, con bicchiere di vino, da qualunque settimana di pensieri faticosi e impegni.

    Per togliere un po' l'eccesso di poesia e di romanticismo al mondo della cucina.
    Il capitolo dedicato ad "Adam-Real-Last-Name-Unknown", per chi ama la panificazione, vale di per sé l'intero libro.

    Illuminante!

    Spesso pensavo: "nella prossima vita mi piacerebbe studiare per diventare cuoco"... beh, questo libro mi ha fatto cambiare idea! Molto bello!

    Simpatico

    Lettura leggera e alla fine simpatica, le avventure di Anthony Bourdain per diventare cuoco fanno passare alcuni giorni (tanto ci vuole per finire il libro) senza pensare troppo e divertendosi q.b.
    Ogni tanto un po' di evasione ci vuole, no? :)
