A decade after “Kitchen Confidential” lifted the lid on the drug-fuelled kitchens of NYC, Anthony Bourdain is dishing again.
Ten years ago, professional chef and sharp-edged raconteur Anthony Bourdain took out his literary boning knife and went to work on the hidden world of the professional kitchen.
His bestselling “Kitchen Confidential” told wild stories – way out of school – of sex, drugs and scary hygiene in the realm of the tony restaurant and haute cuisine.
Then Bourdain went big. Book after book, and a big TV show – “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” — that took his wicked wit and eye all over the world.
Now he’s looking back. Still tough.
This Hour, On Point: Anthony Bourdain.
Anthony Bourdain, chef, television host and best-selling author. He’s author of the megaseller “Kitchen Confidential” and host of the Travel Channel show Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. His new book is “Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook.” You can read an excerpt.
