Item Description...
The best-selling author of Kitchen Confidential and A Cook's Tour shares a candid and outrageous collection of his worldwide culinary misadventures, from scrounging for eel in backstreet Hanoi, to quarreling with raw-food activist Woody Harrelson, to revealing the less than glamorous aspects of making television. Reprint.

Publishers Description
In the multiweek New York Times bestseller The Nasty Bits, bestselling chef and No Reservations host Anthony Bourdain serves up a well-seasoned hellbroth of candid, often outrageous stories from his worldwide misadventures.  Whether surviving a lethal hot pot in Chengdu, splurging on New York's priciest sushi, or singing the praises of Ecuadorian line cooks and Hell's Kitchen dives, Bourdain is as provocative, engaging, and opinionated as ever. The Nasty Bits is an irresistible tasting menu of food writing at its outrageous best—served up Bourdain style.

More About Anthony Bourdain

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Born in 1956, Anthony Bourdain graduated from the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America. His extensive body of work has graced the pages of The Times, New York Times, Observer, the Face, and Scotland on Sunday. He is an ongoing contributor and authority for Food Arts magazine. Bourdain's fictional works include two crime novels--1997's Gone Bamboo and Bone in the Throat in 1995. His book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly was a bestseller, with an updated edition published in 2007. In 2002, the Food Network debuted what would become a twenty-two episode series featuring Bourdain circling the globe and feeding his adventure eating habit with the most extreme cuisine the world had to offer. The inspired bestselling book, A Cook's Tour In Search of the Perfect Meal, met with huge success in the United Kingdom and the United States.

Previous books include Kill the Poor, Kill Kill Faster Faster (both of which have been made into films), and New York Sawed in Half. For DC Comics, he wrote the graphic novels LA PACIFICA and THE BIG BOOK OF THUGS.

Anthony Bourdain currently resides in the state of New York.

Not My Favorite  Sep 17, 2008
I love Anthony Bourdain. There. I said it. I would love to hang out with him, cook with him, and well, let's just say, do other things with him. Except read this book.

Bourdain is a genuinely talented writer, as he proved in Kitchen Confidential. He is a charismatic raconteur as he proves each week on his television show. But this book is a compilation of many divergent pieces, thrown together to attain maximum fiscal return. Because the tales vary so greatly, the reader is forced to jump from concept to concept without anything binding the pieces together properly. Don't get me wrong, each piece is well crafted, but just because they're all published together doesn't make for a cohesive book.

If you must read Bourdain, re-read Kitchen Confidential. It will leave you more satisfied than this book.
Love it!  Sep 5, 2008
This book was great. I love reading everything Anthony writes because you can hear him speak as you read it.
Great and all TRUE  Aug 30, 2008
Loved this, bought it's the second one of Anthony's I have ordered. I am a Chef myself and it brings tears to my eyes knowing someone else is being tormented by patrons and the front of the house. Very good reading even if you never have cooked a meal his humor and honesty makes this book GREAT.
Quick read  Aug 14, 2008
This is a collection of stories and experiences Bourdain has written about over the years. Some of them are very good, others a little over the top or even slightly boring. He has toned down some of his jabs at other celebrity chefs, trying to give balance and to temper past comments. If only I think to deflect any potential criticism of hypocracy, given that he has become quite the celeb himself. Some of his rants in the past have come across to me as a bit self serving.

It's a fairly quick read and is worth it for most of the chapters. It really deserves three and a half stars, but I can only give it three or four, so I selected four. I actually got some useful insight out of it. Also Kitchen Confidential was a real hoot. He talks about a few other books that were written during the last century, of which I think were inspiration for Kitchen Confidential. I plan to try and find them.
I love Tony  Aug 11, 2008
I am reading Bone in the throat right now and have read 4 of his other books, I can't get enough I play the old episodes on tv while I'm reading so its kind of like he's reading to me...
