Reading Bourdain’s KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL was like listening to him speak. When reading memoirs/auto-biographies, the voice of the author sometimes isn’t how I imagined it to be, which can be incredibly disappointing. Not so in KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL. Bourdain’s sarcasm and dry sense of humor shines through. There was just the right mix of insider’s tips (avoid brunch), name dropping (Frank singing at the Rainbow Room), and stories with anonymous leads (who is Bigfoot?) that kept me cracking up for hours on end. Kudos, Mr. Bourdain.
4.5 out of 5 stars
