''Hysterical, Bourdain gleefully rips through the scenery to reveal private backstage horrors.'' New York Times. Description in Spanish: ''Os quiero hablar de las oscuras y reconditas entranas de un restaurante. La vida de cocinero ha sido para mi un largo enredo amoroso, con momentos tanto sublimes como ridiculos. Nunca he lamentado el inesperado giro de mi vida, que me hizo caer en el ocio de los restaurantes. Siempre he creido que la buena cocina, el buen yantar esta por encima de todo riesgo. Lo mismo da que hablemos de un queso azul sin pasteurizar, de ostras crudas o de trabajar con socios del crimen organizado. Para mi la comida siempre ha sido una aventura''. Muy seguro de entretener a entendidos y profanos, Anthony Bourdain no deja titere con cabeza en su exquisito, divertido y delicioso relato. Un recorrido desde el modesto oficio de lavaplatos, hasta la cocina de Rainbow Room en el Rockefeller Center, mafia incluida.
