Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential

Kitchen Confidential Updated Edition: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly (P.S.)

Given my current obsession with cooking and all things kitchen, I thought it necessary to read the Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. And I wasn't wrong at all.

It is a good read. Definitely very entertaining. Not thought-provoking but eye-opening. A lot of people think being a chef is a fabulous, glamorous job. After all, Giada, Emeril, and Bobby seem to be living the life. But the hardcore truth is... it's a dirty, demanding job that requires talent, really strong back and legs, and the capacity to take everything in stride.
