    ITEM#: 3197190

    Anthony Bourdain is the author of A Cook's Tour and Kitchen Confidential, as well as the satirical thrillers Bone in the Throat, Gone Bamboo, and The Bobby Gold Stories, and the Urban Historical Typhoid Mary, all published by Bloomsbury. A twenty-eight-year veteran of professional kitchens, he is currently the executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles in Manhattan. He lives in New York City.
    In this long-awaited cookbook, Anthony Bourdain reveals the hearty, delicious recipes of Les Halles and the provocative tricks of the trade that have made him a celebrated name across the globe.

    Before stunning the world with his bestselling Kitchen Confidential and A Cook's Tour, Anthony Bourdain spent years serving some of the best French brasserie food in New York. With its no-nonsense, down-to-earth atmosphere, Les Halles matches Bourdain's style perfectly: a restaurant where you can dress down, talk loudly, drink a little too much wine, and have a good time with friends. Now, Bourdain gives us his Les Halles Cookbook, a cookbook like no other: candid, funny, audacious, full of his signature charm and bravado.

    So bring a sharp knife, a big appetite, and a willingness to learn, as Bourdain teaches you everything you need to know to prepare classic French bistro fare. While you're being guided, in simple steps, through recipes like roasted veal short ribs and steak frites, escargots aux noix, and foie gras aux pruneaux, you'll feel like he's in the kitchen beside you-reeling off a few insults when you've scorched the sauce, and then patting you on the back for finally getting the steak tartare right.

    As practical as it is entertaining, Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook is a can't-miss treat for cookbook lovers, aspiring chefs, and Bourdain fans everywhere.

    • Must have cookbook

      This is not just a cookbook, though it is GREAT for that. He wittingly writes about how to cook, where to get ingredients, and advise on knives. The book breaks all the recipes down to make it more simple and gives advise to parts that you could mess-up easily. I have had it for a couple weeks now and have used 6 different recipes and they have all come out pretty good (limited by my abilities not the book). I am a beginning cook, and find it very helpful.

    • Love this cook book!

      My very favorite cook book. If you like Anthony Bourdain, you will love this! He very thoroughly explains everything so well that even if you've never made the dish, you'll do a good job on the first try. He uses his snarky comments throughout the book to make it a very entertaining book aside from the cooking. I absolutely suggest this book to all of my friends! Love it!

    • A bible for who likes to cook "the nasty bits"

      Great recipes, very traditional. Finally a book that's not afraid to give the true three-day way to cook tripes properly! But if you don't like "the nasty bits" (hearts, livers, kidneys and the like), this book is probably not for you...
