Recently, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Bourdain spared no one's appetite in this tell-all about what happens behind the kitchen door.
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. From his first oyster in the Gironde, to his lowly position as a dishwasher in a honky-tonk fish restaurant in Provincetown, 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.
Anthony Bourdain is the author of the novels Bone in the Throat and Gone Bamboo. This is his first work of nonfiction. He is the executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles in New York City.
Hear an exclusive interview with Bourdain.

Fun and informative look into what its like to cook other people's food. Also i will be taking to heart the heads up about ordering seafood on days of the week when your taking a big chance with the freshness.
Raw. Tony pulls no punches in this witty gritty book about what really goes on in the kitchen!
I'm kicking myself why did I go so fast, i could have missed a day of listening, but like a Crack addict I burnt through my stash and now I'm left with sorrow but also excitement that there is more, this book has taught me the importance of listening not just yapping, I loved every second of it.
