About the Book
In this long-awaited cookbook, the bestselling author of "Kitchen Confidential" reveals the hearty, delicious recipes of Les Halles and the provocative tricks of the trade that have made him a celebrated name across the globe.
From the Publisher
Les Halles is the kind of place where people dress down, talk loudly, drink maybe a little too much and enjoy time with friends. That’s the front of house. In the kitchen, one suspects executive chef Anthony Bourdain is doing the same as he serves up some of the best French brasserie food in New York. Veal short ribs, steaks, mussels in wine: it’s hearty, delicious food. Bourdain writes as though he’s in the kitchen with the reader. His signature wit and charm show in every instruction. Along with over 100 recipes, he provides strategies for getting a meal on the table with a flourish, yet without a huge fuss. The beautiful cover is designed for kitchen use--aesthetic yet practical.
About the Author

From Our Editors
Before stunning the world with his bestselling Kitchen Confidential and A Cook's Tour, Anthony Bourdain spent years serving some of the best French brasserie food in New York. With its no-nonsense, down-to-earth atmosphere, Les Halles matches Bourdain's style perfectly: a restaurant where you can dress down, talk loudly, drink a little too much wine, and have a good time with friends. Now, Bourdain gives us his Les Halles Cookbook, a cookbook like no other: candid, funny, audacious, full of his signature charm and bravado.
"Anyone serious about their cooking will want to own Anthony Bourdain''s Les Halles Cookbook. It has an enormous amount of vital information presented in Bourdain''s pungent, abrasive, and memorable writing style." -- Jim Harrison
