Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly (updated edition) Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain

Review of Kitchen Confidential

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Written in the sarcastic, harshly honest, vulgarly funny tone that viewers of "No Reservations" have grown accustomed to, _Kitchen Confidential_ is nothing short of fabulous. Of all the chefs out there, I trust his opinion on what knives to buy--mostly because he's leave pot or pan unturned in this memoir. The only draw back for me was that it felt a little repetitive at times--perhaps that was intentional. Regardless, a must read for those interested in food, travel, and hilarity.

Aaron thought he seemed like an ass when reading this. Now that we watch him so much on TV, he thinks his opinion with a second read would be different, knowing his tone and all.

There was one episode of No Reservations where he was wearing jeans and I found him extremely attractive. It shocked me. I don't remember where he was -- somewhere in South America I think.
