Aloha Friday Cookery Book Review

The Cook's Tour
by Anthony Bourdain

In The Cook's Tour, Bourdain chronicles how he sold his soul to the Food Network and traveled to every corner of the globe in pursuit of the "perfect" meal. His travels take him to Vietnam, Cambodia, France, Portugal, Mexico, Russia, Japan, and points in between. He eats things most people wouldn't even want to look at while they're alive, and regularly drinks to excess. A good time is had by all (including the reader!).

I really enjoy Anthony Bourdain's books. He is irreverent and crude, intelligent and profound, and always, always entertaining. If you're a daring foodie who wants a different kind of travelogue, this is the one for you!!
