I wanted to love this book, I really did. I love food, reading about food and other people who love food. What I don't love is chefs who just write down their inner monologue during a busy Friday night in the coolest restaurant in NYC. I liked the parts about food, and cooking like a chef at home, but once it got into two pages on the importance of clean towels and the excruciating chapter of rad kitchen lingo I was annoyed again. Basically this book is for anyone who HASN'T worked in the restaurant industry and still views it as a hip lifestyle. Stick to TV Mr. Bourdain, and leave the literature to the professionals.
