If you enjoy Bourdain on TV, you will enjoy this cookbook. His writing style is so vivid, and so indistinct from his speaking style, that it's almost possible to forget you're reading instead of watching him on screen. The recipes aren't inspired or filled with fads, but they aren't meant to be. The photography is incredible, the food sounds delicious, and I'm going to start cooking my way through it as soon as I finish writing this.

Fantastic. ( )

Very disappointed in this cookbook. Too many ingredients never available to me. Lots of nasty words. Uninteresting dishes..... ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062409956, Hardcover)

Anthony Bourdain is man of many appetites. And for many years, first as a chef, later as a world-traveling chronicler of food and culture on his CNN series Parts Unknown, he has made a profession of understanding the appetites of others. These days, however, if he’s cooking, it’s for family and friends.

Appetites, his first cookbook in more than ten years, boils down forty-plus years of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a tight repertoire of personal favorites—dishes that everyone should (at least in Mr. Bourdain’s opinion) know how to cook. Once the supposed "bad boy" of cooking, Mr. Bourdain has, in recent years, become the father of a little girl—a role he has embraced with enthusiasm. After years of traveling more than 200 days a year, he now enjoys entertaining at home. Years of prep lists and the hyper-organization necessary for a restaurant kitchen, however, have caused him, in his words, to have "morphed into a psychotic, anally retentive, bad-tempered Ina Garten."

The result is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other, with personal favorites from his own kitchen and from his travels, translated into an effective battle plan that will help you terrify your guests with your breathtaking efficiency.
