Editorial Reviews


“In what might be his most accessible book yet, Bourdain reveals his “Ina Garten-like need to feed the people around me” with a terrific collection of recipes for family and friends.” -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Bourdain is back with his inimitable voice-funny, foul-mouthed, and unapologetically opinionated-in this tightly curated collection of recipes…a cookbook that should be on every library’s food shelves.” -- Booklist (starred review)

“APPETITES, in addition to presenting an eclectic, expletive-laden portrait of one’s family’s fare, is also a really great cookbook.” -- BookForum
--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Anthony Bourdain is a man of many appetites. And for many years—first as a chef, later as a world-traveling chronicler of food and culture on his CNN series Parts Unknown— he has made a profession of understanding the appetites of others. These days, however, if he’s cooking, it’s for family and friends.

Appetites, his first cookbook in more than ten years, boils down thirty-plus years of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a tight repertoire of personal favorites—dishes that everyone should (at least in Mr. Bourdain’s opinion) know how to cook. The result is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other, with personal favorites from his own kitchen and from his travels, translated into an effective battle plan that will help you terrify your guests with your breathtaking efficiency.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5+ stars for Tony! Beware of poor packaging.
By CG Buckeye on March 4, 2019
I don't often splurge on a brand new hardcover book but because of my deep respect and affection for the late Chef Tony Bourdain I decided to treat myself. If you are a fan all you have to do is take advantage of the "look inside" option on the Amazon page and you'll see what a treat this book is. You can literally hear his voice in your head as you read the text. It is rich with a ridiculous number of photos and the paper quality is excellent. It screams Bourdain from cover to cover. I will keep this book for the rest of my life. Now the bad news. I order frequently from Amazon, a wide variety of items, and rarely do I receive anything that has not been carefully and thoughtfully packaged to prevent harm. Sometimes even ridiculously so. But when I picked up this box and felt the book thud against the inside my heart sank. When I opened the box I found that not a shred of bubble wrap or cushioning of any kind had been placed in the box to protect this outstanding first edition. Only 1 of the 8 corners failed to receive some kind of damage and the white border on the front cover has black scuff marks. I could cry. Who ships a beautiful book with no protection? I am not a negative-rater and always try to give a fair review. I can't bear to associate a low rating with Tony ( I'm sure he would smirk and say I got what I paid for -free shipping) but I will seriously rethink the types of items I buy here from now on.
