After twenty-five years of 'sex, drugs, bad behaviour and haute cuisine', chef and novelist Anthony Bourdain has decided to tell all. From his first oyster in the Gironde to his lowly position as a dishwasher in a honky-tonk fish restaurant in Provincetown; from the kitchen of the Rainbow Room atop the 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, as shocking as they are funny.

A fisherman took the family out on his boat one day. He asked if anyone wanted to try a raw oyster. Everyone else squirmed, so Anthony, in an attempt to shock his family, ate one and enjoyed it. That day he got hooked on culinary adventuring. Chapter 2 At eighteen, Bourdain was spoiled and undisciplined. He was attending, and failing, Vassar College where he spent his time smoking pot, drinking, and trying to outrage people. He ended up in Provincetown, Massachusetts, in 1974, as a dishwasher at the Dreadnaught, a typical New England seafood shack. The management was laissez-faire with the waitresses handing out free drinks and sexual favors. To Bourdain, the four cooks were gods who dressed and acted like pirates. Bourdain was enchanted by the kitchen life. He was promoted to the salad station.

A Cook's Tour: In Search of the Perfect Meal Bourdain sets off to eat his way around the world. But this was never going to be a conventional culinary tour. He heads to Saigon where he eats the still-beating heart of a live cobra, and travels into Khmer Rouge territory to find the rumoured Wild West of Cambodia. He also dines with gangsters in Russia, finds a medieval pig slaughter and feast in Portugal, and returns to the fishing village where he first ate oysters as a child. Written with his inimitable machismo and humour, this is an adventure story sure to give you indigestion.

Book Description :

A new, deluxe edition of Kitchen Confidential to celebrate the life of Anthony Bourdain. The book will feature a brand new introduction, a Q&A with Ecco publisher and Bourdain’s long-time editor Daniel Halpern. Interior pages are hand-annotated by Anthony Bourdain himself. The interior will also feature a brand new drawing by Ralph Steadman. Almost two decades ago, the New Yorker published a now infamous article, “Don’t Eat before You Read This,” by then little-known chef Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain spared no one’s appetite as he revealed what happens behind the kitchen door. The article was a sensation, and the book it spawned, the now classic Kitchen Confidential, became an even bigger sensation, a megabestseller with over one million copies in print. Frankly confessional, addictively acerbic, and utterly unsparing, Bourdain pulls no punches in this memoir of his years in the restaurant business—this time with never-before-published material.

Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain: Conversation Starters "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly" was written by American chef Anthony Bourdain in 2000. An updated edition was released in 2007, featuring new material. The book talks about Bourdain's personal life but also reveals behind-the-scenes stories from restaurant kitchens. The author describes the culinary industry as a sometimes hazardous workplace run by misfits, most of the time also unpleasant and intense. Bourdain believed that it's necessary for anyone who wants to enter the industry to have a somehow masochistic and irrational dedication to cooking. "Kitchen Confidential" was a New York Times bestseller and the starting point for Bourdain's popularity. In 2017, after the start of the Me Too movement, the author expressed remorse because of the book celebrating and enabling certain sexist behaviors. A Brief Look Inside: EVERY GOOD BOOK CONTAINS A WORLD FAR DEEPER than the surface of its pages. The characters and their world come alive, and the characters and its world still live on.

“Will make many readers smile with recognition.”—The New Yorker “Readaholics, meet your new best friend.”—People “This book is bliss.”—The Boston Globe Sometimes subtle, sometimes striking, the interplay between our lives and our books is the subject of this unique memoir by well-known publishing correspondent and self-described “readaholic” Sara Nelson. The project began as an experiment with a simple plan—fifty-two weeks, fifty-two books—that fell apart in the first week. It was then that Sara realized the books chose her as much as she chose them, and the rewards and frustrations they brought were nothing she could plan for. From Solzhenitsyn to Laura Zigman, Catherine M. to Captain Underpants, the result is a personal chronicle of insight, wit, and enough infectious enthusiasm to make a passionate reader out of anybody.

Book Description :

A dad’s “charming, funny” memoir of trying to pass along his refined culinary tastes, with some kid-friendly recipes included (Neal Pollack). Armed with the belief that kids don’t need puree in a jar or special menus when eating out, restaurant critic and food writer Matthew Amster-Burton was determined to share his love of all things culinary with his daughter, Iris. From the high of rediscovering tastes through a child’s unedited reaction to the low of realizing his precocious vegetable fiend was just going through a phase, Matthew discovered that raising an adventurous eater is about exposure, invention, and patience. Sharing in Matthew’s culinary capers is little Iris, a budding gourmand and a zippy critic herself—who makes huge sandwiches, gobbles up hot chilies, and even helps around the kitchen. This account, with dozens of delicious recipes and notes on which dishes can be prepared by “little fingers,” reminds us: “Food is fun, and you get to enjoy it three times a day, plus snacks.” “A very timely and excellent book.” —Anthony Bourdain “A fast, funny memoir punctuated with sensible advice and recipes . . . Encourages adults to chill the heck out and have fun cooking with their kids.” —Seattle Weekly “An antidote to the ubiquitous advice that bland food is best for little ones.” —Associated Press “Full of great ideas for family meals. In a world of culinary pandering to kids . . . Amster-Burton gets the recipe right.” —Neal Pollack, author of Alternadad “Amster-Burton is equal parts Mario Batali, Ray Romano, Dr. Spock of toddler cuisine, and Mr. Spock of child logic.” —Steven Shaw, author of Turning the Tables

Book Description :

The male market is exploding. Thanks to emerging social and cultural trends, men are becoming consumers to reckon with. In 1990 only 4% of men claimed to regularly use a skin care product. By 2015 the figure will have risen to 50%. Branded Male discusses the evolution of the male consumer and the desire of marketers to tap into the still underdeveloped male market. Crammed with facts and anecdotes, Branded Male analyses how to effectively brand products and services for the male market. Using a typical modern male's weekday as a template and examining all the influences affecting him, the book considers his exposure to brands and the ways marketers can exploit these channels, taking you through popular strategies for marketing to men. In his trademark style, Mark Tungate - the author of Fashion Brands: Branding Style from Armani to Zara - paints a portrait of the male consumer. From razor blades to beer, from aftershave to hotels, he finds out which marketing messages have the most impact on male wallets. Men's bank balances may never be the same again.

Book Description :

A lot has changed since Kitchen Confidential - for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business-and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores these changes, moving back and forth from the author's bad old days to the present. Tracking his own strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-travelling professional eater and drinker, Bourdain compares and contrasts what he's seen and what he's seeing, pausing along the way for a series of confessions, rants, investigations, and interrogations of some of the most controversial figures in food. And always he returns to the question: 'Why cook?' Or the harder one to answer: 'Why cook well?' Beginning with a secret and highly illegal after-hours gathering of powerful chefs he compares to a Mafia summit, Bourdain, in his distinctive, no-holds-barred style, cuts to the bone on every subject he tackles.

Book Description :

Twenty first century, flexible capitalism creates new demands for those who work to acknowledge that all aspects of their lives have come to be seen as performance related, and consequently of interest to those who employ them (or fire them). At the start of the 21st century we can identify, borrowing from Max Weber, new work ethics that provide novel ethically slanted maxims for the conduct of a life, and which suggest that the cultivation of the self as an enterprise is the life-long activity that should give meaning, purpose and direction to a life. The book provides an innovative theoretical and methodological approach that draws on the problematising critique of Michel Foucault, the sociological imagination of Zygmunt Bauman and the work influenced by these authors in social theory and social research in the last three decades. The author takes seriously the ambivalence and irony that marks many people’s experience of their working lives, and the demands of work at the start of the 21st century. The book makes an important contribution to the continuing debate about the nature of work related identities and the consequences of the intensification of the work regimes in which these identities are performed and regulated. In a post global financial crisis (GFC) world of sovereign debt, austerity and recession the author’s analysis focuses academic and professional interest on neo-liberal injunctions to imagine ourselves as an enterprise, and to reap the rewards and carry the costs of the conduct of this enterprise.

Book Description :

Bestselling author, TV host, and chef Anthony Bourdain reveals the hearty, delicious recipes of Les Halles, the classic New York City French bistro where he got his start. Before stunning the world with his bestselling Kitchen Confidential, Anthony Bourdain, host of the celebrated TV shows Parts Unknown and No Reservations, spent years serving some of the best French brasserie food in New York. With its no-nonsense, down-to-earth atmosphere, Les Halles matched Bourdain's style perfectly: a restaurant where you can dress down, talk loudly, drink a little too much wine, and have a good time with friends. Now, Bourdain brings you his Les Halles Cookbook, a cookbook like no other: candid, funny, audacious, full of his signature charm and bravado. Bourdain teaches you everything you need to know to prepare classic French bistro fare. While you're being guided, in simple steps, through recipes like roasted veal short ribs and steak frites, escargots aux noix and foie gras au pruneaux, you'll feel like he's in the kitchen beside you-reeling off a few insults when you've scorched the sauce, and then patting you on the back for finally getting the steak tartare right. As practical as it is entertaining, Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook is a can't-miss treat for cookbook lovers, aspiring chefs, and Bourdain fans everywhere.
