From the Publisher
A New York Times Bestseller
In a not-too-distant future L.A. where master chefs rule the town
like crime lords and people literally kill for a seat at the best
restaurants, a bloody culinary war is raging.
On one side, the Internationalists, who blend foods from all over
the world into exotic delights. On the other, the "Vertical Farm,"
who prepare nothing but organic, vegetarian, macrobiotic dishes.
Into this maelstrom steps Jiro, a renegade and ruthless sushi chef,
known to decapitate patrons who dare request a California Roll, or
who stir wasabi into their soy sauce. Both sides want Jiro to join
their factions. Jiro, however has bigger ideas, and in the end, no
chef may be left alive!
Anthony Bourdain, top chef, acclaimed writer (Kitchen Confidential,
Medium Raw) and star of the hit travel show, No Reservations,
co-writes with Joel Rose (Kill Kill Faster Faster, The Blackest
Bird) this stylized send-up of food culture and society, with
detailed and dynamic art by Langdon Foss.
