We gave it an A-

Previously uncollected rants and travel essays, some food porn, and one sweet paean to frumpy old French bistros by the swaggering chef/TV star.

Kitchen Heroes
Anonymous Latin American line cooks. ”No shrieking and wailing…for Manuel. He’s a professional, not some flighty ‘artist,”’ Bourdain says. ”We need more Latinos to come here. And they should, whenever possible, impregnate our women.”

The Skinny
Bourdain might curtail some of that macho posturing, but this shameless he-man sure can write.
