Anthony Bourdain (Travel Channel: No Reservations)
Unabridged. Narrator: Anthony Bourdain
Bourdain's professional memoir and a behind-the-scenes look at restaurant kitchens. He describes in graphic details the ins-and-outs of the restaurant trade. The book is remarkable for its insistence in deglamorizing the professional culinary industry. The commercial kitchen is described as an intense, unpleasant and sometimes hazardous place of work staffed by what he describes as "misfits".
