Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Kitchen Confidential:

What happens in the kitchen, stays in the kitchen.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Skills can be taught. Character you either have or you don't have."

Questions to ponder while reading Kitchen Confidential:

Does food poisoning scare you?

How much do you like garlic?

My thoughts about Kitchen Confidential:

Have I ever mentioned how much I like food?

I like the simple ingredient rule.

Anthony is a bit harsh on vegetarians.....
