Medium Raw Anthony Bourdain read online review & book description:

Medium Raw marks the return of the inimitable Anthony Bourdain, author of the blockbuster bestseller Kitchen Confidential and three-time Emmy Award-nominated host of No Reservations on TV’s Travel Channel. Bourdain calls his book, “A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook,” and he is at his entertaining best as he takes aim at some of the biggest names in the foodie world, including David Chang, Alice Waters, the Top Chef winners and losers, and many more. If Hunter S. Thompson had written a book about the restaurant business, it could have been Medium Raw.

    Funny, sentimental, smart, educational, but it...

    What else can I say!?!? Absolutely the best, most relatable, book I've ever my life. Period. I could go on and on about how much of an amazing ubiquitous life that must have been and how fascinated I am by it! All I would like to say is, Thank You Mr Boudain for sharing it.
  • Bringing back memories

    I enjoyed this style of writing great flashbacks for me of restaurant realities that I experienced while being in the business for many years and working in a restaurant from the age of 13. Tony has a way of making it seem like it is happening as we are reading it. I feel like I did not miss a thing from that night ! Great dad...... the Fillmore east, man what a scene that place was. How about the Ratners next door... had many potato blintzes in that place at 6 in the morning with my eyes on the floor Thanks Tony ..... Keep it coming

    Mellowed, stabler, thicker at the waist Tony than he was as the author of No Reservations, yet still criminal enough to describe the satisfying crunch bird bones make in the mouth, even pornier when it's endangered ortolan smuggled from France.
  • So worth the read

    Since kitchen confidential, this is great follow up. I hope Bourdaine continues to write about the adventures of the kitchen. It has pushed me to chronicle my own life as a "cook in the basement".

    I laughed out loud at Sandra Lee story. Priceless. Some of it is definitely raw, but VERY entertaining.
  • Greatness

    The chapter on Justo is pure joy.
  • As always, an excellent book

    By HaterGator
    As a culinary student I take a special pleasure reading about the restaurant industry and Bourdain does an excellent job describing all the B.S. I'm sure to encounter in the upcoming years. Admittedly I preferred Kitchen Confidential over this current book but in no way does that mean this wasn't an excellent read.
  • Wow

    By Kapt Korea
    What a great book.... I wish they would make Kitchen Confidential available now....
  • Entertaining though at times misguided.

    I enjoy Tony's writing style and reading the book is like hearing him tell the stories. If you like his TV show and his twisted but cool demeanor, them you will like this book. I did not enjoy the vulgar language or the teen-aged minded sexual references and find this portion of his repertoire misguided. I do like his no holds barred opinions and find these refreshing.
