In 2004 I came across a copy of A Cook’s Tour by Anthony Bourdain. I loved the book. I’m sure I knew who Bourdain was before this time, but this my first solid memory. I think I’d heard of his popular book, Kitchen Confidential, but it was Cook’s Tour that I read.
Anyway, I finally went back to the book that started it all, Kitchen Confidential. Actually, I got it on audiobook and listened while exercising. Bourdain reads the book, which is really cool. I thought this was a great book.
