    Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

    Holly says: "Kitchen Confidential"
    "Fascinating look at the restaurant biz"
    Overall

    For anyone who has ever considered becoming a chef, works in the restaurant biz, or just loves food, you will love this book. It is an interesting look at the dark underbelly of the business behind serving good food, is narrated by the author, and is full of sick and fascinating antecdotes about his growth through the ranks of various restaurants. Mr. Bourdain is a bit self indulgent and egotistical, but you'll cut him some slack after 30 minutes of this one because it's so darn engaging.

    Story

    With the humor of Bridget Jones and the vitality of Augusten Burroughs, Julie Powell recounts how she conquered every recipe in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking and saved her soul.

    Elizabeth says: "A good laugh"
    "I love Julie!"
    Overall

    It took me a few minutes to warm up to Julie, but once I did I was cheering for her until the end! This is a wonderfully written, funny, quirky tale of an everyday girl, stuck in an everyday job, who has an inspiration that turns her life around. Julie is me, you, and every other person going through the motions of life and looking for something a little more. You will laugh out loud and want more.

  • Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise

    Garlic and Sapphires is Ruth Reichl's riotous account of the many disguises she employs to dine anonymously. There is her stint as Molly Hollis, a frumpy blond with manicured nails and an off-beige Armani suit that Ruth takes on when reviewing Le Cirque. The result: her famous double review of the restaurant: first she ate there as Molly; and then as she was coddled and pampered on her visit there as Ruth, New York Times food critic.

    Nicole says: "Read engagingly by Bernadette Dunne"
    "Excellent and absorbing listen!"
    Overall

    Food writing is an art, and Ruth Reichl has mastered it. A fascinating look behind the scenes of a career that most of us just dream about - the food critic. Read by Ms. Reichl, this book will keep you listening from the very first word and sad once it ends. Eating out will never be the same! The undertone of the book will have you thinking about exactly what message you're sending every time you get dressed in the morning. Well worth the ride!
