Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly After twenty-fi ve years of 'sex, drugs, bad behaviour and haute cuisine', chef and novelis t Anthony Bourdain has decided to tell all. From his first oyster in the Gi ronde 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 t o New York again, Bourdain's tales of the kitchen are as passionate as they are unpredictable, as shocking as they are funny. A Cook's Tour: In Search of the Perfect Meal Bourdain sets off to eat his way around the world. But this was never going to be a conventional culinary tour. He heads to Saigo n where he eats the still-beating heart of a live cobra, and travels into K hmer Rouge territory to find the rumoured Wild West of Cambodia. He also di nes with gangsters in Russia, finds a medieval pig slaughter and feast in P ortugal, and returns to the fishing village where he first ate oysters as a child. Written with his inimitable machismo and humour, this is an adventu re story sure to give you indigestion.
