ANTHONY BOURDAIN NASTY BITS PDF

Anthony Bourdain is sitting at the head of the table. Gathered around are several journalists, cooks and acquaintances of the author, who rose to international prominence with Kitchen Confidential — a bestselling memoir about his less-than-glamorous experiences as a chef. I am sitting on his left and the chef-turned-author-turned-TV star turns to me. The short, sharp articles range across fat Americans and fast food, the Las Vegas restaurant scene, ghastly gastro-pubs in the UK, the true art of improvisation at the stove, Woody Harrelson and raw food devotees, and traveling the world to promote books and make television programs.

Anthony Bourdain is sitting at the head of the table. Gathered around are several journalists, cooks and acquaintances of the author, who rose to international prominence with Kitchen Confidential — a bestselling memoir about his less-than-glamorous experiences as a chef. I am sitting on his left and the chef-turned-author-turned-TV star turns to me. The short, sharp articles range across fat Americans and fast food, the Las Vegas restaurant scene, ghastly gastro-pubs in the UK, the true art of improvisation at the stove, Woody Harrelson and raw food devotees, and traveling the world to promote books and make television programs.

He has clearly been in demand since spilling the beans on real kitchen life just as the sanitized celebrity chef phenomenon was reaching its zenith.

The essays are easy to read even for non-foodies, although Bourdain remains a cheerleader for the unheralded heroes of the kitchen — the cooks and chefs who flock to his book signings. Oprah was a very strange experience. You go on because you sell 15, books for every minute that you are on the show.

I look out into the crowd and I can see these women that bought their tickets two years ago, and they have all bought new dresses, got their hair done and have been dieting for two years. They all had this blissed out look. Suddenly, there is a roar as The Oprah appears.

I could feel myself blowing in the wind. God knows what I said. It was over in an instant. Bourdain is currently executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles in New York but admits he does not cook anymore and that his career now lies in writing and broadcasting.

I was slowing down. So I got drunk and stuffed the article into an envelope, and mailed it off to The New Yorker magazine. They ran it - what were the odds of that? It took two years before I realized that I would never have to cook again. He loves books and professes to be able to read very quickly. When I was young, I was a huge William Burroughs fan — imagine being 13 years old and wanting to be William Burroughs. That probably explains a few things about me.

Read, beer, pass out, read, beer, pass out. That would be nice. More Bits by Bourdain. Not only are they the most important people in the kitchen but they are my farm team for my next sous chefs. The chef quit after my review where I recommended that all the staff flee. It was just atrocious. Everything over-cooked to mush. Steakhouse restaurants offer better vegetables. People seem to turn to veganism after some crisis in their lives… broken up with their boyfriends or something.

He was drunk and abusive and making crude comments to some women at one of the tables. I grabbed him by the belt and the collar, and literally threw him out on to the street.

The Nasty Bits by Anthony Bourdain

Once I had it in my hot little hands, I was salivating to crack it open and dive right in. I have been hooked with Bourdain fever from his first book Kitchen Confidential and onward. I really enjoy his gritty matter-of-fact approach to his writing and his TV shows like Parts Unknown. He takes me into a world that I have no first hand knowledge about.

The Nasty Bits: Collected Varietal Cuts, Usable Trim, Scraps, and Bones

Anthony Bourdain's books exist well outside the traditional food-writing canon. His is not a world that calls to mind joyful meals with family and friends around large oak tables. The Nasty Bits, instead, describes the sweat, noise and grind of the modern restaurant kitchen, the drugs some chefs, including him, have taken to get through their shifts and the alcohol consumed after work. This is a collection of his previously published articles and essays.
