Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The only thing gonzo gastronome and internationally bestselling author Anthony Bourdain loves as much as cooking is traveling. Inspired by the question, What would be the perfect meal?, Tony sets out on a quest for his culinary holy grail, and in the process turns the notion of perfection inside out. From California to Cambodia, A Cooks' Tour chronicles the unpredictable adventures of America's boldest and bravest chef.

--Dallas Morning News --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

Food Writer of the Year -- Bon Appétit

“Bourdain’s mission is to show the cool, un-Martha side of the culinary world.” -- Time magazine

“None of your limp-wristed, pinch-mouthed, hoity-toity delicacies for this guy.” -- Elle

“[Bourdain] is a one-man army traveling the world on his stomach--and his droll wit.” -- People

“Some fine food adventure reading…. Bourdain offers excellent insight into real food.” -- San Francisco Chronicle

“Vintage Bourdain.” -- Dallas Morning News

“Adventurous and opinionated, [Bourdain] is very good company.” -- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“If you’re looking for a camel ride and an amiable companion, you could do a lot worse.” -- Washington Post

“Brilliant. A chain-smoking, hard-drinking, cut-to-the-chase guy’s guy, ready to try anything new and different.” -- Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Mighty engaging.... [Bourdain’s] snappy, full-bore writing style--whether being sarcastic, passionate, or descriptive--is good entertainment.” -- Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.
