A Cook's Tour
In Search of A Perfect MealBook - 2001
Inspired by the question, "What would be the perfect meal?" Anthony Bourdain set out on a quest for the holy grail of culinary gratification. The adventures and misadventures of America's favourite chef as he travelled the world in search of the ultimate meal are chronicled in his irresistible new book, A Cook's Tour.A delightful combination of travel writing and food writing, A Cook's Tour takes the reader to a Phnom Penh Gun Club where AK47s are served up to the unwary. In Japan, Bourdain samples fugu, the most poisonous fish in the world. His pilgrimage leads him to Europe where he visits France then continues on to Portugal. There a whole village has fattened a pig for the special banquet in his honour.Bourdain's odyssey will be a 23 part series on the Food Network. Debuting in February 2002, the series is based on A Cook's Tour."Bourdain's prose is utterly riveting, swaggering with stylish machismo and a precise ear for kitchen patois." --New York Magazine
