KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL; Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly

New York: BLOOMSBURY, 2000. First Edition; Fourth printing. Hardcover. 307 pages. What to say about this iconic individual? He broke the mold, he told it how he saw it: "I want to tell you about the dark recesses of the restaurant underbelly - a subculture whose centuries-old militaristic hierarchy and ethos of 'run, buggery and the lash' make for a mix of unwavering order and nerve-shattering chaos - because I find it all quite comfortable, like a nice warm bath...Of course, there's a very possibility this book could finish me in the business. There will be horror stories. Heavy drinking, drugs, screwing in the dry-goods area, unappetizing revelations about bad food-handling and unsavory industry-wide practices." Covered in protective mylar. ISBN 158234082X, price $24.95 on front flap. Black boards. Near fine, in very good dust wrapper. Item #3640
