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.

    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? :)

    Godurioso e divertente in adeguate proporzioni.

    N.B. Parliamo del periodo pre-mania culinaria dilagante.

    Con esta moda gastronomica y todos quieren y creen ser los super chefs del momento y han puesto a la cocina casi en un altar es bueno leer lo que piensa y como vine su profesión uno de los mejores chefs del mundo, lo mejor que muestra un Anthony tal y como es, ahora uno entiende sus programas de television y se da cuenta que no es un actor si no un chef una persona comun y corriente
