Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Utterly riveting, swaggering with stylish machismo and precise ear for kitchen patois." New York

Review:

"[T]he kind of book you read in one sitting, then rush about annoying your coworkers by declaiming whole passages." USA Today

Review:

"[T]he best book I have ever read about the nuts and bolts mechanics of running serious restaurant kitchens...brilliant on the tumult of running a kitchen that might turn out anywhere from two hundred to four hundred serious meals a night." Joseph Epstein, The Weekly Standard

Review:

"A gonzo memoir of whats really going on behind those swinging doors....Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain is unique." Newsweek

Review:

"You'll laugh, you'll cry...you're gonna love it.!" Denver Post

Review:

"Unique...mesmerizing." Newsweek

Review:

"You'll laugh, you'll cry...you're gonna love it." Denver Post

Review:

"With equal parts wit and wickedness, Bourdain [does] the unthinkable by revealing trade secrets that chefs and restaurateurs cringe to read." Restaurant Business

Review:

"Hysterical.... Bourdain gleefully rips through the scenery to reveal private backstage horrors." New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

New York chef Tony Bourdain gives away secrets of the trade in his wickedly funny, inspiring memoir/exposé. Kitchen Confidential reveals what Bourdain calls "twenty-five years of sex, drugs, bad behavior, and haute cuisine."

Synopsis:

New York Chef Tony Bourdain gives away secrets of the trade in his wickedly funny, inspiring memoir/expose. 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.
