Some brief overview of this book

An illustrated, behind-the-scenes travel journal of Anthony Bourdains global adventures.

More than just a companion to the hugely popular show, No Reservations is Bourdains fully illustrated journal of his far-flung travels. The book traces his trips from New Zealand to New Jersey and everywhere in between, mixing beautiful, never-before-seen photos and mementos with Bourdains outrageous commentary on what really happens when you give a bad-boy chef an open ticket to the world. Want to would not limit himself to, say, cooking risotto, Bourdain has approached his writing career in much the same way. His repertoire consists of comedic crime novels, autobiographical travelogues, exposes, and historical explorations — not to mention a collection of tasty recipes. Bourdains career has been characterized by more unexpected twists and turns than one would find in one of his novels. After the native New Yorker graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, he opened his own classic French Bistro, Brasserie Les Halles. However, never satisfied with simply traveling a single avenue, Bourdain tried his hand at penning a novel. The results were wholly unexpected: A witty, gritty mob tale set in the Little Italy section of Manhattan, Bone in the Throat was published in 1995. Bourdains second novel, Gone Bamboo, followed two years later, and once again the writers innate knack for black humor was on full display. Publishers Weekly confidently christened him a new master of the wiseass crime comedy. Of course, by the time the public had placed Bourdain in a specific literary niche, he was already on to bigger game. In 1999, The New Yorker published Dont Eat Before Reading This, his scathing exposé of conditions within certain New York restaurants. The article, which garnered wide attention, would ultimately evolve into the critically lauded full-length book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly. Bourdain brought the same cutting humor and confident swagger that marked his novels to his first nonfiction work, establishing a distinct voice that followed him from genre to genre. Jumping from memoir (The Nasty Bits) to biography (Typhoid Mary: An Urban Historical) to culinary how-to (Anthony Bourdains Les Halles Cookbook), Bourdain served up his smartypants prose with the same skill he brought to his celebrated cuisine. In the end, even as Bourdain continues to wear many hats — master chef, restaurant entrepreneur, novelist, essayist, TV star — his heart still lies in the kitchen. When youve been a cook and chef for twenty-eight years, as I have, you never really look at the world from any other perspective, he told PreviewPort.com in 2002. In many ways thats helpful with all the nonsense — as one tends to have low expectations. For the time being — Im making it up as I go along and trying to enjoy the ride while it lasts.Good To Know

When PreviewPort.com asked Bourdain who he would invite to the ultimate dinner party, he responded with his typical deadpan flair, Graham Greene, Iggy Pop, Kim Philby, Louise Brooks, Hede Massing and would host it in the squalid back room of the Siberia Bar in NYC. You can add sitcom creator to Bourdains long list of accomplishments. In 2005, FOX TV produced a comedy series based on his book Kitchen Confidential only to unceremoniously cancel the series before it even aired. Bourdain can currently be seen traveling the world in search of the ultimate eating experience in his very own series Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations on the Discovery Channel.

Biography

Like all great chefs, Anthony Bourdain is a true jack-of-all-trades. Just as a truly skilled chef would not limit himself to, say, cooking risotto, Bourdain has approached his writing career in much the same way. His repertoire consists of comedic crime novels, autobiographical travelogues, exposes, and historical explorations — not to mention a collection of tasty recipes. Bourdains career has been characterized by more unexpected twists and turns than one would find in one of his novels. After the native New Yorker graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, he opened his own classic French Bistro, Brasserie Les Halles. However, never satisfied with simply traveling a single avenue, Bourdain tried his hand at penning a novel.
