Comments  Summary  Contents  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

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." (Publisher Provided) Chef and author Anthony Bourdain was born in New York City on June 25, 1956. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 1978. He has written numerous books including The Nasty Bits; Bone in the Throat; Gone Bamboo; Typhoid Mary: An Urban Historical; and No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach. He was named Food Writer of the Year in 2001 by Bon Appétit magazine for Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly and A Cook's Tour was named Food Book of the Year in 2002 by the British Guild of Food Writers. He is the host of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations on the Travel Channel. He is currently honorary Chef-at-Large of Brasserie Les Halles. (Bowker Author Biography)
