I can whole-heartedly recommend this book! It’s actually one of my recent favorites. Amazon has Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential as a Kindle eBook.
You don’t even need a Kindle device to read it. Just download the appropriate Kindle App for your iPhone, iPad, Android, Tablet, PC or Mac and enjoy! Click here to download the FREE Kindle App for your device from Amazon
If you love Top Chef, No Reservations or just cooking/restauarants in general, you’ll enjoy this behind the scenes look at the restaurant industry. Some thing may surprise you and you’ll learn things to (like why to never order fish on a Monday)
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.
