Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain: Conversation Starters
“Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly” was written by American chef Anthony Bourdain in 2000. An updated edition was released in 2007, featuring new material. The book talks about Bourdain’s personal life but also reveals behind-the-scenes stories from restaurant kitchens. The author describes the culinary industry as a sometimes hazardous workplace run by misfits, most of the time also unpleasant and intense. Bourdain believed that it’s necessary for anyone who wants to enter the industry to have a somehow masochistic and irrational dedication to cooking.
“Kitchen Confidential” was a New York Times bestseller and the starting point for Bourdain’s popularity. In 2017, after the start of the Me Too movement, the author expressed remorse because of the book celebrating and enabling certain sexist behaviors.
