Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain
- Very Good
When Chef Anthony Bourdain wrote "Don't Eat Before You Read This" in "The New Yorker," he spared no one's appetite, revealing what goes on behind the kitchen door. In "Kitchen Confidential," he expanded that appetizer into a deliciously funny, delectable shocking banquet that lays out his 25 years of sex, drugs, and haute cuisine.
From his first oyster in the Gironde to the kitchen of the Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center, from the restaurants of Tokyo to the drug dealers of the East Village, from the mobsters to the rats, Bourdain's brilliantly written, wild-but-true tales make the belly ache with laughter.
