Here are my notes on, Kitchen Confidential, By: Anthony Bourdain.
How serendipitous that in my normal workflow, this is the next one in my queue. The timing of it all. Bourdain’s perspective will be missed.
I particularly enjoyed the piece that made him famous.
And this profile too.
I savored this book so much that I apparently blew through it and only managed to jot down his advice on being a chef:
“Be fully committed.”
“Always be on time.”
“Never make excuses or blame others.”
“Never call in sick.”
“Lazy, sloppy and slow are bad.”
“Be prepared to witness every variety of human folly and injustice.”
“Assume the worst.”
“Try not to lie.”
“Avoid restaurants where the owner’s name is over the door.”
“Think about that resume!”
“Have a sense of humor about things.”
This book deserves a second look.
When I get back around to it, I will post an update here:
