  1. Kitchen Confidential is the book that made Anthony Bourdain and, after two decades, it holds up extremely well Bourdian offers insights on what happens in the kitchen and what drove him to become a chef He presents am engaging and sometimes funny look at his early experiences with restaurants, their owners, staffs and even takes readers behind the scenes with his own life This is a very different Bourdian than the one who pops up on CNN these days, far less mature and worldly and profane Regardl [...]


  2. I have worked in the restaurant industry my entire life, and I have to say that even if you ve only waited tables for a month, or never worked in the industry at all, this is a must read When people go out to dinner, they have a pleasant time, or they don t They like their waiter, or they don t They have strong opinions on the food, the smells, the dcor, or they don t Regardless of peoples experience in a dining room, there is a circus act going on continuously long before these people ever arri [...]


  3. Some years ago I had an interest in a restaurant along with two other partners I also had a French family background with a deep appreciation of fine cuisine I also have dined at Les Halles, his famous restaurant in New York My partnership was to be silent, that is, just kick in your share of the money and go away In the first week of operation I was tapped to do dishes because the washer didn t show, wait tables for a similar reason etc etc For weeks we struggled to bring order and routine to t [...]


  4. Anthony Bourdain tells us early in the book that he is going to tell the truth and he does The good, the bad and the beautiful It was poignant to read this the day he died by suicide I felt like I had him here in my room as he talked to me He writes the same way that he talks, so it is easy to hear his voice in your ear as you read If you have ever worked in restaurants, as I have, you will recognize a lot of what he talks about But some of it is just Bourdain s restaurants He tends to gather hi [...]


  5. Kitchen Confidential is an edgy look into some of the scariest kitchens in America It is also a glimpse of punk rock cooking, drugs, and slave like efforts the public never knew existed I enjoy cooking simple dishes and exploring new foods I am by no means a trained chef There are some great basic cooking tips along with warnings of what not to order Hollandase sauce at the brunch buffet Anthony Bourdaine, to me, comes across as an arrogant New Yorker However, he has put in his dues and obviousl [...]


  6. Your body is not a temple it s an amusement park The book that launched a man from jobbing chef to beloved TV personality pulls no punches about life in the trenches of a professional kitchen and while the language and behaviours that Bourdain swears do not discriminate should be a turn off, his very soul fizzes up out of the pages of this book in a way that will stick with you The passages I highlighted a very practical one about shopping for pans go for the heaviest ones and one on writing wri [...]


  7. Mr Bourdain comes across as something of a tortured soul totally at odds with most aspects of being a regular functioning human being, this in itself is why I love this book soo much He has a gift for story telling and self effacing behavior that I find very appealing in a writer and for that matter a person Very true to himself.The book fires along at great pace through his life starting from a brief look at his childhood and some of his formulative inspirations, interspersed with foodie bits, [...]
