Review: Kitchen Confidential

Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary UnderbellyKitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you are bothered by coarse language this is not the book for you. However, the pirate ship mentality and outrageous behavior of Bourdain and his crews was incredibly entertaining. I am never eating at the Rainbow Room again, but otherwise came through this book about what goes on in restaurant kitchens unscathed. The same cannot be said for the author.
I listened to this as an audio, read by Bourdain, and it was like listening to him telling the various stories which worked really well.

I am counting this toward the Foodies Read 2015 challenge (as a memoir/biography).


  1. It does seem like this would be a good book to listen to, with Bourdain narrating. I have this book and have for years, and have not read it yet. Sounds interesting.

  2. I'm not a fan of Bourdain, so I'll pass on this book. Glad you liked it though, and thanks for linking it to the Foodies Read Challenge!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
