A Cook's Tour: Global Adventure in Extreme Cuisines

The intrepid chef follows up his best-selling book Kitchen Confidential with a narrative that blends travelogue, history and roughneck humor into a recipe for success. Journeying to exotic locales in search of the ideal meal, the globetrotting author makes stops in Japan, Portugal and Vietnam, among other places, risking life and limb along the way for the sake of sampling indigenous cuisines. In the name of gastronomic inquiry, Bourdain braves all, eating the heart of a live cobra and snacking on Fugu, a poisonous fish only licensed cooks can serve. The stories surrounding these acts of culinary daring are filled with all the humor, irony and reporterly expertise readers have come to expect from the king of cuisine. A reading group guide is available at www.harpercollins.com.
