About this book
Paperback edition of "Kitchen Confidential" author, Bourdain's culinary odussey around the world, which, as one might expect, is far from being a conventional culinary whistle-stop tour of traditional foodie hot spots. From Cambodia and Vietnam to Moscow and rural Mexico, via the French fishing village of his ancestors, Bourdain describes his journey in his trademark quick-fire, colourful style. A great combination of quality travel writing and culinary adventure, that should do really well this autumn. Forget Keith Floyd. Bourdain is the man. The accompanying TV series will be broadcast in Spring, 2003.
Anthony Bourdain is a life-long line cook and author of "Kitchen Confidential". Here, he sets off to eat his way around the world. He heads out to Saigon where he eats the still-beating heart of a live cobra, and travels deep into landmined Khmer Rouge territory to find the rumoured Wild West of Cambodia (Pailin).
