Fascinating Book About Restaurants and Chefs

Anthony Bourdain is not just a pretty darn good chef, but he turns out to be a very good writer. After reading, Kitchen Confidential, I could never eat a seafood frittata again (or any seafood on a buffet on a Sunday). He writes with such bite and wit that I was thrilled to see he had written another book on food called The Nasty Bits.

While this isn’t related to health or nutrition, I really recommend it to everyone who likes to read. It is a nice book to read in bed, or by the fireplace. Be forewarned through, Anthony pulls few punches, especially in the chapter called “The Evildoers” where he skewers the fast food industry being one of the main reasons the world is becoming obese. The book is worth the price just for that chapter alone.
