After twenty-five years of 'sex, drugs, bad behaviour and haute cuisine', chef and novelist Anthony Bourdain has decided to tell all. From his first oyster in the Gironde 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 to New York again, Bourdain's tales of the kitchen are as passionate as they are unpredictable, as shocking as they are funny.

Impressions

    Я понимаю, почему эта книга стала бесселлером. Для людей не из индустрии она читается, как захватывающий триллер. Для людей из индустрии — как в зеркало посмотреть. Да, многое устарело, да, что-то слишком сентиментально или слишком наиграно. Но это честный, иногда очень смешной, иногда грустный рассказ о тяжелой работе, которая мало кому кажется тяжелой.

    but she still wakes up next to me every morning, laughs at my jokes on occasion, and helpfully points out when I’m being an asshole

    How much longer am I going to do this?

    I don’t know. I love it, you see
    Roberto Garzahas quoted14 days ago
    My nails, such as they are –I gnaw them in the taxi home from work –are filthy; there’s dried animal blood under the cuticles, and crushed black pepper, beef fat and sea salt
