Did i hear this one already? I feel like Ive heard this one before, and yet, I haven't. I like listening to AB's accounts of his food travels, but this seems like a rerun. Id hate to think he was predictable, since that seems to go against every aspect of his personabilty.
If you liked Anthony Bourdain's first book on his food exploration travels, this will be a nice follow-up. Not only does he explore the interesting foods he encounters around the world, he also shares insights into the new cultures he meets. On the downside, towards the end of the book, it becomes a bit difficult to follow the storyline of where he is travelling next. Also, there are times when his use of french cooking terminology goes a bit over the top. Overall, a very enjoyable listen, provided a good chuckle, but not suitable for people who are easily offended by four-letter words. This So Cal girl recommends.
Anthony Bourdain is the author of the novels "Bone in the Throat" and "Gone Bamboo", in addition to the megabestseller "Kitchen Confidential" and "A Cook's Tour". His work has appeared in the "New York Times" and the "New Yorker", and he is a contributing authority for "Food Arts" magazine. He is the host of the popular television show "No Reservations".
