Appetites: A Cookbook

Written with the no-holds-barred, no-bullshit-allowed ethos of his beloved series, No Reservations and Parts Unknown, the celebrity chef and culinary explorer’s first cookbook in more than ten years—a collection of recipes for the home cook

Anthony Bourdain is man of many appetites. And for many years, first as a chef, later as a world traveling chronicler of food and culture, he has made a profession of understanding the appetites of others. These days, however, if he’s cooking, it’s for family and friends.

Appetites boils down forty-plus years of professional cooking and world traveling to a tight repertoire of personal favorites—dishes that everyone should ( at least in Mr. Bourdain’s opinion) know how to cook. Once the supposed “bad boy” of cooking, Mr. Bourdain has, in recent years, become the father of a little girl—a role he has come to embrace with enthusiasm. After years of traveling over 200 days a year, he has come to enjoy entertaining at home. Years of prep lists and the hyper-organization necessary for a restaurant kitchen however, have caused him, in his words, to have “morphed into a psychotic, anally retentive, bad tempered Ina Garten.”

The result is a home cooking, home entertaining cookbook like no other. Personal favorites from home and from his travels, translated into an effective battle plan that will help you terrify your guests with your breathtaking efficiency.

It is only fitting that the cover of this family friendly classic is by Ralph Steadman which should give you an idea of what’s inside. Lavishly and provocatively photographed by Bobby Fisher, Appetites looks to take the cookbook to the edge of the cliff—and over. A bonus pull out poster depicts and deconstructs the tectonic and structural aspects of the perfect hamburger with text by Nathan Myrvhold. An instant collectible, it is intended to hang on every kitchen wall, a rebuke and reminder to those who would attempt anything less than excellence in burgerdom.
