'...written with a clarity and a clear-eyed wit to put the professional food writing fraternity to shame. His account of a day in the life of a chef is a tour de force... In short, Bourdain has written a bouillabaisse of a book. Which is to say it's a classic, and a ripe one at that. There are very few books which all professional cooks should read but this is one. To Escoffier and Larousse may now be added the name Bourdain.' - The Guardian

Regarded as a modern classic of behind-the-scenes memoir and contemporary food writing, Kitchen Confidential is Anthony Bourdain's uncensored 'sex, drugs, bad behaviour and haute cuisine' account of life as a professional chef.

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.
