The Nasty Bits: Collected Varietal Cuts, Useable Trim, Scraps, and Bones

Front Cover
Bloomsbury, 2006 - Cookery - 288 pages
For all those Anthony Bourdain fans who are hungering for more, here is The Nasty Bits - a collection of his journalism. As usual Bourdain serves up a well-seasoned hellbroth of candid, often outrageous stories from his worldwide misadventures. Whether scrounging for eel in the backstreets of Hanoi, hanging out with Australia's big name chefs in Sydney and Melbourne, revealing what you didn't want to know about the more unglamorous aspects of making television, calling for the head of raw food activist Woody Harrelson, or confessing to lobster-killing guilt, Bourdain is as entertaining as ever. The Nasty Bits is a rude, funny, brutal and passionate stew for fans and the uninitiated alike. Praise for The Nasty Bits 'Fantastic- as lip-smackingly seductive as a bowl of fat chips and aioli.' Daily Telegraph 'Bawdie, bolshy and bursting with energy.' Daily Mail
