Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less. Anthony Bourdain is a television host, author, and chef. A 1978 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Bourdain worked as a professional chef in New York City for nearly twenty years, eventually being named Executive Chef of Brasserie Les Halles in 1998. Though best known for hosting the Emmy-winning television program No Reservations, Bourdain first shot to prominence after his book Kitchen Confidential reached the New York Times Best Seller list in 2000. Bourdain would follow Kitchen Confidential with A Cook's Tour (2001), an account of his travels to many different parts of the world, including Cambodia, Russia and Morocco. A Cook's Tour, which was simultaneously filmed as a television program, first showed the type of passionate and honest commentary on international cuisine that Bourdain would become best known for. Bourdain has written ten books in total (including three fiction books), most recently 2010's Medium Raw which was also a New York Times Best Seller. Kitchen Confidential is an autobiographical account of chef Anthony Bourdain's entry into the professional culinary world of the 1980s and 90s and his experiences within it. The book is organized into six sections, each representing part of a multi-course meal: Appetizer, First Course, Second Course, Third Course, Dessert, and Coffee and a Cigarette. BOOK EXCERPT FROM THE ANTHONY BOURDAIN QUICKLET: KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL Motivated by his embarrassing experience at Mario's kitchen, Bourdain decided to apply to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Quick to mention how it was not nearly as selective as the school is today, Bourdain was easily and quickly able to gain entry due to a connection who had donated money to the school. Though his restaurant experience was limited compared to a seasoned chef, it gave him an advantage over his classmates, most of whom were younger than he was. Bourdain was able to pass through most of his classes with relative ease, which made him arrogant and cocky. However, because of the humiliation that he suffered at the hands of the chefs at Mario's, he also had a more grounded perspective than before. This is best exemplified by his encounter with Chef Bernard, a terrorizing French chef who ran the Escoffier Room, a famed restaurant on the grounds of the CIA. It was considered a rite of passage for every chef that attended the CIA to receive a furious, profanity-laced scolding from Chef Bernard during the course of taking his class. When Bourdain was scolded by Chef Bernard, however, he looked in Tony's eyes and saw, perhaps, that Tyrone and the Mario crew had done his work for him. Due to his inability to put fear into Tony, the chef came to be quite nice to him. ...to be continued! Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less.

A fisherman took the family out on his boat one day. He asked if anyone wanted to try a raw oyster. Everyone else squirmed, so Anthony, in an attempt to shock his family, ate one and enjoyed it. That day he got hooked on culinary adventuring. Chapter 2 At eighteen, Bourdain was spoiled and undisciplined. He was attending, and failing, Vassar College where he spent his time smoking pot, drinking, and trying to outrage people. He ended up in Provincetown, Massachusetts, in 1974, as a dishwasher at the Dreadnaught, a typical New England seafood shack. The management was laissez-faire with the waitresses handing out free drinks and sexual favors. To Bourdain, the four cooks were gods who dressed and acted like pirates. Bourdain was enchanted by the kitchen life. He was promoted to the salad station.

Dodging minefields in Cambodia, diving into the icy waters outside a Russian bath, Chef Bourdain travels the world over in search of the ultimate meal. The only thing Anthony Bourdain loves as much as cooking is traveling, and A Cook's Tour is the shotgun marriage of his two greatest passions. Inspired by the question, 'What would be the perfect meal?', Anthony sets out on a quest for his culinary holy grail. Our adventurous chef starts out in Japan, where he eats traditional Fugu, a poisonous blowfish which can be prepared only by specially licensed chefs. He then travels to Cambodia, up the mine-studded road to Pailin into autonomous Khmer Rouge territory and to Phnom Penh's Gun Club, where local fare is served up alongside a menu of available firearms. In Saigon, he's treated to a sustaining meal of live Cobra heart before moving on to savor a snack with the Viet Cong in the Mecong Delta. Further west, Kitchen Confidential fans will recognize the Gironde of Tony's youth, the first stop on his European itinerary. And from France, it's on to Portugal, where an entire village has been fattening a pig for months in anticipation of his arrival. And we're only halfway around the globe. . . A Cook's Tour recounts, in Bourdain's inimitable style, the adventures and misadventures of America's favorite chef.

When up-and-coming chef Tommy Pagana settles for a less than glamorous stint at his uncle's restaurant in Manhattan's Little Italy, he unwittingly finds himself a partner in big-time crime. And when the mob decides to use the kitchen for a murder, nothing Tommy learned in cooking school has prepared him for what happens next. With the FBI on one side, and his eccentric wise guy superiors on the other, Tommy has to struggle to do right by his conscience, and to avoid getting killed in the meantime. In the vein of Prizzi's Honor, Bone in the Throat is a thrilling Mafia caper laced with entertaining characters and wry humor. This first novel is a must-have for fans of Anthony Bourdain's nonfiction. "A prodigiously self-assured first novel. . . the author's comic vision goes beyond original. It is deliciously depraved."-The New York Times Book Review
