In large part because Bourdain is a very funny writer; sharp, honest and with a beguiling mix of belligerence and sensitivity' Sunday Telegraph 'Brilliantly written up in a raw, stylish gonzo prose, with pitch-black humour and a devilish turn of phrase' Evening Standard ____________________ Anthony Bourdain, life-long line cook and bestselling author of Kitchen Confidential, sets off to eat his way around the world. But being Anthony Bourdain, this was never going to be a conventional culinary tour. Bourdain heads out to Saigon where he eats the still-beating heart of a live cobra, and travels deep into landmined Khmer Rouge territory to find the rumoured Wild West of Cambodia (Pailin). Other stops include dining with gangsters in Russia, a medieval pig slaughter and feast in northern Portugal, the Basque All Male Gastronomique Society in Saint Sebastian, rural Mexico with his Mexican sous-chef, a pilgrimage to the French Laundry in the Napa Valley and a return to his roots in the tiny fishing village of La Teste, where he first ate an oyster as a child. Written with the inimitable machismo and humour that has made Tony Bourdain such a sensation, A Cook's Tour is an adventure story sure to give you indigestion.

Book Quicklet on A Cook s Tour by Anthony Bourdain

Download or read book Quicklet on A Cook s Tour by Anthony Bourdain written by Shauna Korinne Patton and published by Hyperink Inc. This book was released on 2012-03-04 with total page 60 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Quicklets: Your Reading Sidekick! ABOUT THE BOOK Viewed simply, A Cooks Tour is one mans quest to discover just what the perfect meal might be. Unfortunately, things are rarely so cut and dried. As Bourdains travels, at least for this book, took place pre-September 11th, there is still a little elasticity in the travel. Yes, Bourdain experiences certain moments of unease while on his journey, but not in the way that travelers are forced to take added precautions today. Food is the great equalizer: a shared passion, simply made up of different ingredients, depending on where you are in the world. It is able to evoke the strong, visceral reactions related not only to taste, but also touch, smell, sound, and sight. Given foods shared cultural arc, its not a stretch to see how something as basic as food could be considered transformative. MEET THE AUTHOR Shauna Patton grew up in the wilds of Northern California and thus removed from populous cities, she turned to the expanse of her imagination for entertainment. This would include writing short stories and plays, and roping unsuspecting friends/family into producing and performing. This led to a four year tenure at UC Santa Cruz, where she majored in Theatre Arts, with a year abroad at a University in Southern England. When not concocting crazy stories, she loves to watch movies (especially Bollywood, anything Christian Bale and 1940's film noir), read, knit, watch the Dropkick Murphy's in concert, rock out to cheesy 80's pop and hang out with friends. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Inspired by the idea of the perfect meal, Anthony Bourdains novel A Cooks Tour: Global Adventures in Extreme Cuisines is part foodie travel diary and part memoir of the man himself. Not for those with weak stomachs, Bourdain launches himself on a tour around the globe on a quest for good food, movie-style adventure and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Whether hes chowing down on the still-beating heart of a cobra in Vietnam, lamb gonads in the Sahara, haggis in Scotland, or shuddering through the horrors of birds nest soup, Bourdains food encounters offer a great sensory delight for the reader, especially secondhand. Much of the developed world is far removed from their food. There is little knowledge about the actual gathering and preparation of food, as the glossy supermarkets hide the behind-the-scenes carnage. As Bourdain notes, Respecting the ingredients may no longer be an economic necessity in much of the emerging world; it is now a pleasure, to be experienced and enjoyed at ones chosen time and place. Bourdains quest for culinary excellence is grandiose: I knew that the best meal in the world...is rarely the most sophisticated or expensive one...context and memory play powerful roles in the truly great meals in ones life.

Book Icons of American Cooking

Download or read book Icons of American Cooking written by Elizabeth S. Demers Ph.D. and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2011-03-08 with total page 333 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Discover how these contemporary food icons changed the way Americans eat through the fascinating biographical profiles in this book. Before 1946 and the advent of the first television cooking show, James Beard's I Love to Eat, not many Americans were familiar with the finer aspects of French cuisine. Today, food in the United States has experienced multiple revolutions, having received—and embraced—influences from not only Europe, but cultures ranging from the Far East to Latin America. This expansion of America's appreciation for food is largely the result of a number of well-known food enthusiasts who forever changed how we eat. Icons of American Cooking examines the giants of American food, cooking, and cuisine through 24 biographical profiles of contemporary figures, covering all regions, cooking styles, and ethnic origins. This book fills a gap by providing behind-the-scenes insights into the biggest names in American food, past and present.

Download or read book KY BBQ written by Wes Berry and published by University Press of Kentucky. This book was released on 2013-03-01 with total page 340 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “This book is an education in all things Kentucky barbecue” and the ideal guide for “a lip-smacking trip through the best BBQ in the Bluegrass State” (Maggie Green, author of The Kentucky Fresh Cookbook). The Kentucky Barbecue Book is a feast for readers who are eager to sample the finest fare in the state. From the banks of the Mississippi to the hidden hollows of the Appalachian Mountains, author and barbecue enthusiast Wes Berry hits the trail in search of the best smoke, the best flavor, and the best pitmasters he can find. This handy guide presents the most succulent menus and colorful personalities in Kentucky. Kentucky style barbecue is distinct because of its use of mutton and traditional cooking methods. Many of the establishments featured in this book are dedicated to the time-honored craft of cooking over hot hardwood coals inside cinderblock pits. These traditions are disappearing as methods requiring less manpower, less wood, and less skill gain ground.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Race and Repast: Foodscapes in Twentieth-Century Southern Literature examines the literary foodscapes of the American South—from Jim Crow–era kitchens where White and Black Southerners reacted against racial mores, to the public dining spaces where Southerners probed the limits of racial identity, to the lunch counters that became touchstones of the Black Freedom movement. Mining literary texts by iconic authors like Ernest Gaines and Walker Percy to demonstrate that “food reflects and refracts power,” Urszula Niewiadomska-Flis wields food studies as a revelatory lens through which to view a radically segregated society that was often on the cusp of violence. Niewiadomska-Flis also provides a rich and succinct introduction to scholarship in Southern studies and food studies, making Race and Repast a compelling read that offers countless insights to experts as well as readers exploring these areas of research for the first time.

Download or read book Cambodia Now written by Karen J. Coates and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2014-08-23 with total page 392 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cambodia has never recovered from its Khmer Rouge past. The genocidal regime of 1975–1979 and the following two decades of civil war ripped the country apart. This work examines Cambodia in the aftermath, focusing on Khmer people of all walks of life and examining through their eyes key facets of Cambodian society, including the ancient Angkor legacy, relations with neighboring countries (particularly the strained ones with the Vietnamese), emerging democracy, psychology, violence, health, family, poverty, the environment, and the nation’s future. Along with print sources, research is drawn from hundreds of interviews with Cambodians, including farmers, royalty, beggars, teachers, monks, orphanage heads, politicians, and non-native experts on Cambodia. Dozens of exquisite photographs of Cambodian people and places illustrate the work, which concludes with a glossary of Cambodian words, people, places and names, and an appendix of organizations providing aid to Cambodia.

Download or read book Refrigeration Nation written by Jonathan Rees and published by JHU Press. This book was released on 2013-12-15 with total page 249 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How we keep food cold while the house stays warm. Only when the power goes off and food spoils do we truly appreciate how much we rely on refrigerators and freezers. In Refrigeration Nation, Jonathan Rees explores the innovative methods and gadgets that Americans have invented to keep perishable food cold—from cutting river and lake ice and shipping it to consumers for use in their iceboxes to the development of electrically powered equipment that ushered in a new age of convenience and health. As much a history of successful business practices as a history of technology, this book illustrates how refrigeration has changed the everyday lives of Americans and why it remains so important today. Beginning with the natural ice industry in 1806, Rees considers a variety of factors that drove the industry, including the point and product of consumption, issues of transportation, and technological advances. Rees also shows that how we obtain and preserve perishable food is related to our changing relationship with the natural world.
