This week's episode is a book review of Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential.  It's exploitational, but we can't necessarily say over-exaggerated.  This episode isn't rated as "clean" because the book makes numerous references to alcohol and drug use, as well a informal dalliances with the opposite sex (I think I said that as polite as I possibly could).  An entertaining read from someone who really has been there and done that (probably a few times), Boudain's Kitchen Confidential is the flag ship of restaurant exposés, that have influenced many others to write their own memoirs of how things really are in the kitchens of restaurants.

    You guys did a good job but i’m still not sold on Mr. Bourdain. Just the sight of him on tv tends to piss me off. I’ll just have to read the book and find out for myself.

    I, too, used to think he was just a great big d-bag (this is Tracy, BTW), but the book convinced me otherwise. He really cares about cooking, food, and isn’t an ass if you care, too. I still disagree with him on a few points, but after reading the book I gained a lot of respect for him.
