NonFictionBookclub “Kitchen Confidential” by Anthony Bourdain & U Dog too

January 10, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:20 pm EST

All doglovers & dogs are invited to join my coed bookclub on Tuesday, January 10 to discuss this insightful, acerbic, raw, riveting, funny, gripping, confessional memoir,”Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly” by Anthony Bourdain.

An updated and revised edition of Anthony Bourdain’s mega-bestselling Kitchen Confidential, with new material from the original edition. Almost two decades ago, the New Yorker published a now infamous article, “Don’t Eat before You Read This,” by then little-known chef Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain spared no one’s appetite as he revealed what happens behind the kitchen door. The article was a sensation, and the book it spawned, the now classic Kitchen Confidential, became an even bigger sensation, a megabestseller with over one million copies in print. Frankly confessional, addictively acerbic, and utterly unsparing, Bourdain pulls no punches in this memoir of his years in the restaurant business. Fans will love to return to this deliciously funny, delectably shocking banquet of wild-but-true tales of life in the culinary trade from Chef Anthony Bourdain, laying out his more than a quarter-century of drugs, sex, and haute cuisine—this time with never-before-published material. Bourdain spared no one’s appetite when he told all about what happens behind the kitchen door. Bourdain uses the same “take-no-prisoners” attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable book, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike. From Bourdain’s first oyster in the Gironde, to his lowly position as dishwasher in a honky tonk fish restaurant in Provincetown (where he witnesses for the first time the real delights of being a chef); from the kitchen of the Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center, to drug dealers in the east village, from Tokyo to Paris and back to New York again, Bourdain’s tales of the kitchen are as passionate as they are unpredictable. Kitchen Confidential will make your mouth water while your belly aches with laughter. You’ll beg the chef for more, please.

We’ll enjoy a stimulating & fun discussion with wonderful booklover company, while enjoying a virtual happy. I can’t wait til I see you if I have the privilege on January 10 &/or prior
