I’ve been waiting a long time for a new book from Anthony Bourdain and while sitting around during my daughter’s soccer practice and playing with the Ipad I came across a preview of Anthony’s Bourdain’s new book Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook.
So what’s with the title Medium Raw? Based on the listing of chapters and the 28 pages I was allowed to read Anthony Bourdain is always going to be raw. He’s always going to tell you how it is with double expletives. Now, medium can only mean he’s half way there in his new life.
Kitchen Confidential was our introduction to Tony and where he’s from that being the kitchen.
A Cook’s Tour covered the start of his new traveling life in search of the perfect meal.
And now Medium Raw is an update on his life and a recap on what has changed for the good and bad in the food scene.
What I was privileged to read so far was awesome. An amazing description on how his life had change from being strung out and slinging hash in a breakfast joint in New York to now being invited to a top secret gathering of the top Chefs in New York to feast on Ortolan. A tiny songbird considered to be the pinnacle of gastronomic delight by the French.
And his first interaction with Food Network Star Sandra Lee whom he has referred to in the past as the frightening hell spawn of Kathie Lee and Betty Crocker.
Anthony Bourdain truly writes in pictures. As you read his writing you feel like you are right next to him experiencing all the craziness in his life. I’m excited about this new book I’m just pissed that I have to wait till June 8th to get the full copy downloaded.
