Gill 'Extraordinary ... written with a clarity and a clear-eyed wit to put the professional food-writing fraternity to shame' Observer

The first half of Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential had me turning pages compulsively; I stayed up half the night reading half of it.
But the next night I found myself growing tired of his "oh-I'm-so-self-deprecating but here's how such a crazy man as me dealt with it" schtick. I just wish there had been a little more "here's how it works" and a little less "this is how a crazy guy like me did it".
Still, two thumbs up.
