Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A New York restaurant veteran takes a cup of Down and Out, adds a dash of Fear and Loathing, and whips up a gonzo memoir of what's really going on behind those swinging doors."
—Newsweek

The mega-bestselling classic, Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential is available in a new pocket-sized Insider's Edition. Bourdain's deliciously funny, delectably shocking, wild-but-true tales of life in the culinary trade are now hand-annotated throughout by the author himself, with Bourdain's updated insights and commentary—and a new Afterword about the radically changing food and restaurant industry a decade after the book's original publication. The drugs, sex, and haute cuisine are still here, but given a fresh new perspective from the bona fide super-celebrity chef, star of TV's No Reservations, and bestselling author of Medium Raw, Bone in the Throat, Gone Bamboo, and A Cook's Tour. No matter if it's your first time in Tony's Kitchen or if you've experienced the heat before, this sensational Insider's Edition is a treat worth savoring!
