Before stunning the world with his bestselling Kitchen Confidential, Anthony Bourdain spent years serving some of the best French brasserie food in New York. With its -nsense, down-to-earth atmosphere, Les Halles matched Bourdain's style perfectly: a restaurant where you can dress down, talk loudly, drink a little too much wine, and have a good time with friends. Now, Bourdain brings you his Les Halles Cookbook, a cookbook like other: candid, funny, audacious, full of his signature charm and bravado. Bourdain teaches you everything you need to kw to prepare classic French bistro fare. While you're being guided, in simple steps, through recipes like roasted veal short ribs and steak frites, escargots aux ix and foie gras au pruneaux, you'll feel like he's in the kitchen beside you-reeling off a few insults when you've scorched the sauce, and then patting you on the back for finally getting the steak tartare right. As practical as it is entertaining, Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook is a can't-miss treat for cookbook lovers, aspiring chefs, and Bourdain fans everywhere.
Anthony Bourdain is the author of the bestselling Kitchen Confidential, the Urban Historical Typhoid Mary, and A Cook's Tour, which was turned into a successful series by the same name for the Food Network. His novels include The Bobby Gold Stories, Bone in the Throat and Gone Bamboo. He is the executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles in New York City.
