From the Publisher
An illustrated, behind-the-scenes travel journal of Anthony
Bourdain's global adventures.
More than just a companion to the hugely popular show, "No
Reservations" is Bourdain's fully illustrated journal of his
far-flung travels. The book traces his trips from New Zealand to
New Jersey and everywhere in between, mixing beautiful,
never-before-seen photos and mementos with Bourdain's outrageous
commentary on what really happens when you give a bad-boy chef an
open ticket to the world. Want to know where to get good fatty crab
in Rangoon? How to order your reindeer medium rare? How to tell a
Frenchman that his baguette is invading your personal space? This
is your book. For any Bourdain fan, this is an indispensable
opportunity to hit the road with the man himself.
About the Author
Anthony Bourdain is the executive chef at brasserie Les Halles in New York. After two years at Vassar College, he attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. He has since spent more than two decades working in professional kitchens. His memoir "Kitchen Confidential" (2001) was expanded from an article he'd written for "The New Yorker" magazine about life behind the scenes in restaurant kitchens. The book described life in those kitchens in even more lurid detail, and it became a surprise international bestseller. In late 2000, Bourdain set out to travel his way across the globe, looking for, as he puts it, "kicks, thrills, epiphanies" and the "perfect meal." The book, and its companion Food Network series "A Cook's Tour," chronicle his adventures and misadventures on that voyage. Bourdain is also the author of two satirical thrillers, "Bone In The Throat" and "Gone Bamboo", as well as the "Urban Historical, Typhoid Mary."
