About the Book

Anthony Bourdain’s wickedly funny-yet inspiring-memoir/exposé, Kitchen Confidential, provides a gritty and behind-the-scenes look into life behind the kitchen doors. Bourdain’s skillful storytelling captivates and shocks readers, stealing their appetite while leaving them begging for more. His passion for his trade shines through as he takes readers on the wild journey that is his culinary career as he goes from dishwasher to executive chef; from the East Village, to Tokyo, Paris, and back to New York again.

“Bourdain’s prose is utterly riveting, swaggering with stylish machismo and a precise ear for kitchen patois.”-New York magazine
