Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook

by Anthony Bourdain

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | April 25, 2011 | Trade Paperback

Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook is rated 3 out of 5 by 1.

An instant New York Times bestseller and the follow-up to the mega-hit Kitchen Confidential

In the ten years since Anthony Bourdain''s classic Kitchen Confidential first alerted us to the idiosyncrasies and lurking perils of eating out, much has changed for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business-and for Anthony Bourdain.

Medium Raw tracks Bourdain''s unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-traveling professional eater and drinker, and even to fatherhood, in a series of takes-no-prisoners confessions, rants, investigations, and interrogations of some of the most controversial figures in food.

Beginning with a secret, highly illegal after-hours gathering of powerful chefs thathe compares to a mafia summit, Bourdain pulls back the curtain-but never pulls his punches-on the modern gastronomical revolution. Cutting right to the bone, Bourdain sets his sights on some of the biggest names in the foodie world, including David Chang, the young superstar chef; the revered Alice Waters; the Top Chef contestants; and many more. Medium Raw is the deliciously funny, shockingly delectable result, sure to delight philistines and gourmands alike.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bourdain Strikes Again! Bourdain has the gift of prose and this doesn't disappoint. The first half of the book is stronger as the topics are more generalized about food and culture. The second part begins to drag (not too much, just a teaspoon) as Bourdain discusses some of his buddies and chefs in the industry. Still a joy to read!

Editorial Reviews

"Bourdain has insight, access and good taste, and he''s a naturally engaging writer...Bourdain is a hopeless romantic when it comes to food and the people who cook. The subtitle''s real valentines are two elegantly written profiles." (New York Times Book Review)
