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 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.

Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less. Anthony Bourdain is a television host, author, and chef. A 1978 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Bourdain worked as a professional chef in New York City for nearly twenty years, eventually being named Executive Chef of Brasserie Les Halles in 1998. Though best known for hosting the Emmy-winning television program No Reservations, Bourdain first shot to prominence after his book Kitchen Confidential reached the New York Times Best Seller list in 2000. Bourdain would follow Kitchen Confidential with A Cook's Tour (2001), an account of his travels to many different parts of the world, including Cambodia, Russia and Morocco. A Cook's Tour, which was simultaneously filmed as a television program, first showed the type of passionate and honest commentary on international cuisine that Bourdain would become best known for. Bourdain has written ten books in total (including three fiction books), most recently 2010's Medium Raw which was also a New York Times Best Seller. Kitchen Confidential is an autobiographical account of chef Anthony Bourdain's entry into the professional culinary world of the 1980s and 90s and his experiences within it. The book is organized into six sections, each representing part of a multi-course meal: Appetizer, First Course, Second Course, Third Course, Dessert, and Coffee and a Cigarette. BOOK EXCERPT FROM THE ANTHONY BOURDAIN QUICKLET: KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL Motivated by his embarrassing experience at Mario's kitchen, Bourdain decided to apply to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Quick to mention how it was not nearly as selective as the school is today, Bourdain was easily and quickly able to gain entry due to a connection who had donated money to the school. Though his restaurant experience was limited compared to a seasoned chef, it gave him an advantage over his classmates, most of whom were younger than he was. Bourdain was able to pass through most of his classes with relative ease, which made him arrogant and cocky. However, because of the humiliation that he suffered at the hands of the chefs at Mario's, he also had a more grounded perspective than before. This is best exemplified by his encounter with Chef Bernard, a terrorizing French chef who ran the Escoffier Room, a famed restaurant on the grounds of the CIA. It was considered a rite of passage for every chef that attended the CIA to receive a furious, profanity-laced scolding from Chef Bernard during the course of taking his class. When Bourdain was scolded by Chef Bernard, however, he looked in Tony's eyes and saw, perhaps, that Tyrone and the Mario crew had done his work for him. Due to his inability to put fear into Tony, the chef came to be quite nice to him. ...to be continued! Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less.

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 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.
