Publisher Description

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 the appetizer into a deliciously funny, delectably shocking banquet that lays out his twenty-five years of sex, drugs, and haute cuisine.

From his first oyster in Gironda 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 and wonderfully read, wild-but-true tales make the belly ache with laughter.

What lies ahead

I have been admitted to a culinary school back east and to my surprise, everyone whom I have told about my new adventures has told me to read this book, not i should, but I HAVE to read this if going into the field. And they are right! In a carefully crafted way, Bourdain tells a great story about the world of a chef and a great one at that. One must have a sense of humor to get along inthis job and his is great!

BUY THE TICKET, TAKE THE RIDE

Tony Bourdain is one of my all time heroes. He simply rocks! With Tony reading his own words this audio book is a must have for any fan of the culinary arts. Besides being a very good chef he is also an intelligent and talented writer who tells is like it is while taking his readers on wild ride through the hard knocks world of restaurant kitchens. His writing and thirst for adventure as well as excess reminds me of the late great Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. I don’t think I could give anyone else a greater compliment. Anthony Bourdain simply "gets it" and lives life like it should be lived. To the fullest...
