A worthwhile companion to "No Reservations",
This review is from: No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach (Hardcover)
I too thought that this book would be more in the vein of Anthony Bourdain's written works such as Kitchen Confidential etc, but it really is a companion edition to his Travel Channel show No Reservations. Think of it as a kind of scrapbook containing lots of pictures of the places Tony and his crew have travelled to, covering aspects of how the show was put together, and witty captions for the pictures. Bourdain's acerbic wit is reflected here, and I only wished there was more of it.
All in all, a worthwhile addition for fans of No Reservations, but if you're mainly a fan of his written works, then you may want to give this one a miss.
