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.

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.

Fantastisk. Humoristisk, ærlig og nådesløs!

Line cooking — the real business of preparing the food you eat — is more about consistency, about mindless, unvarying repetition, the same series of tasks performed over and over and over again in exactly the same way.

And hollandaise, that delicate emulsion of egg yolks and clarified butter, must be held at a temperature not too hot nor too cold, lest it break when spooned over your poached eggs.

Food, it appeared, could be important. It could be an event. It had secrets.
