Customer Reviews

A great read.  June 26, 2011
by


The textbook starts with Tony and his brother returning to France, and the memories they had growing up, many involving food. The details Anthony gives you on the food he tries all over the world either makes you salivate or want to vomit depending on what he tastes. If you love good food and you love to travel, this is a great textbook to feed both of those needs. Definitely a fun read but also deeper than that.






A Cook's Tour: Global Adventures in Extreme Cuisines: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

The only thing "gonzo gastronome" and internationally bestselling author Anthony Bourdain loves as much as cooking is traveling. Inspired by the question, "What would be the perfect meal?," Tony sets out on a quest for his culinary holy grail, and in the process turns the notion of "perfection" inside out. From California to Cambodia, A Cooks' Tour chronicles the unpredictable adventures of America's boldest and bravest chef.
