Title: Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly
Author: Anthony Bourdain
Publication Date: Updated edition (January 9, 2007)
Paperback: 312 pages
Racy, raunchy, ridiculously accurate, and a purely fun read. Anyone who has ever been in or around a restaurant kitchen for any length of time will recognize that Anthony Bourdain is speaking the truth and nothing but the truth. His blunt writing style is incredibly refreshing. I loved this book.
