Publisher's Summary

Here is Anthony Bourdain's long-awaited sequel to Kitchen Confidential, the worldwide best seller.
A lot has changed since then - for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business, and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores these changes, moving back and forth from the author's bad old days to the present.
Tracking his own strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-travelling professional eater and drinker, Bourdain compares and contrasts what he's seen and what he's seeing, pausing along the way for a series of confessions, rants, investigations, and interrogations of some of the most controversial figures in food. And always he returns to the question: 'Why cook?' Or the harder one to answer: 'Why cook well?'
Beginning with a secret and highly illegal after-hours gathering of powerful chefs, which he compares to a mafia summit, Bourdain, in his distinctive, no holds barred style, cuts to the bone on every subject he tackles.

Very enjoyable

I liked this audio, his passion for food evident. Made even better by the fact Anthony Bourdin narrated himself.

Not very interesting.

Evidently my review needs at least fifteen words, however, the title says it all. Really.
