Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly

Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly - Anthony Bourdain This was a great book. I loved Tony's irreverent take on the food industry & his great story telling skills definetely showed. He narrated the audiobook himself, so it was wonderful hearing him pronounce all the french words for menu items & culinary techniques that I would have stumbled over & tried to phonetically sound out if I had to read the book. Also, it really brought to life all the insults, threats, & affectionate nicknames those kitchen employees regularly use. He made you feel like you had just become a "fly on the wall" of one of his kitchens.Only thing I wish he had included was his recovery. He speaks candidly of his decent into drug addiction, but barely hints as how & why he became sober & kicked a bad herion habit.I will certainly read his other books & now I'll prefer them in audio as well.
