    Maybe 3.5 stars, sometimes 4 It has lots of interesting anecdotes, but it was somewhat repetitive at parts While interesting for the non culinary inclined, I think it would be better received by someone with a kitchen background or a person who has worked in food and beverage.Some parts of this book talk about fantasti...

    Halfway through this book I remembered I don t have the slightest bit of interest in the culinary arts whatsoever Luckily, I was listening to it on audiotape Unluckily, cassette 4 broke and I had to read the rest with my eyes I m not sure why I picked this up, I guess because I heard Bourdain was the punk rock chef, but besides listening to the Sex Pistols and Velvet Underground while he cooked, there s not a whole lot else going on of a punk rock nature He was a drug addict, but the book Halfway through this book I remembered I don t have the slightest bit of interest in the culinary arts whatsoever Luckily, I was listening to it on audiotape Unluckily, cassette 4 broke and I had to read the rest with my eyes I m not sure why I picked this up, I guess because I heard Bourdain was the punk rock chef, but besides listening to the Sex Pistols and Velvet Underground while he cooked, there s not a whole lot else going on of a punk rock nature He was a drug addict, but the book kind of skips right over that, which would have been interesting I d rather it had beenof a total autobiography than just a chronicle of his history of the restaurant biz, but once again, it s my fault because that s clearly what the book is labeled as I wanted dirty stories from the seedy underbelly of the high class dining world, but it didn t really get much wilder than a bunch of cooks making racist, sexi...

    What follows is my summary of this book Blah, blah, blah I m an asshole blah, blah, blah yay, drugs blah, blah, fuck everyone, pork chop, fuck you all, mince, veal, drugs, blood, blah, blah, blah.Maybe you can tell, I am less than impressed What I ultimately took away from this is that Bourdain would not like me I m a vegetarian, for one and I would not like him I don t feel too bad writing this review, because Bourdain certainly never minces his words culinary pun intended I was exp...

    The book s author is clearly impressed with having passed through the esteemed halls of Vassar College, yet prouder still of his hard knocks and rough and tumble street degree earned working for a slew of restaurants Much of the book is spent describing the working stiffs in the culinary field and their wildly anti social and anti establishment behavior and greedy incompetent restaurant owners The anecdotes were mildly amusing for the first hundred pages but tiresome by the end If you re stuc The book s author is clearly i...
