Anthony Bourdain's last book, Kitchen Confidential, was an utterly engrossing (if scarifying) trawl though the prestige restaurant kitchens of the world that made similar writing in George Orwell read like Enid Blyton. And although we haven't been able to see the manuscript of this one, we're promised more of the same. Such was the audience created for Bourdainiana by the last book (which enjoyed a truly unprecedented word-of-mouth) that its successor is likely to do phenomenal business, given the author's profile, which is higher than ever. We're assured that the wry, caustic tone of voice and vein of black humour will be just as present in A Cook's Tour as it was in its predecessor.Reseña del editor:
Anthony Bourdain, life-long line cook and bestselling author of Kitchen Confidential, sets off to eat his way around the world. But being Anthony Bourdain, this was never going to be a conventional culinary tour. Inspired by Apocalypse Now, Bourdain heads out to Saigon where he eats the still-beating heart of a live cobra (washed down with its blood), and then into Cambodia, the Heart of Darkness, where he travels deep into landmined Khmer Rouge territory to find the rumoured Wild West of Cambodia (Pailin). Other stops include dining with gangsters in Russia, a medieval pig slaughter and feast in northern Portugal, the Basque All Male Gastronomique Society in Saint Sebastian, paladars in Cuba (Commie Beach Party), rural Mexico with his Mexican sous-chef, a pilgrimage to the French Laundry in the Napa Valley and a return to his roots in the tiny fishing village of La Teste, where he first ate an oyster as a child. Written with the inimitable machismo and humour that has made Tony Bourdain such a sensation. A Cook's Tour is an adventure story sure to give you indigestion.
