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
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.
