In Medium Raw, Bourdain Is the Last Honest Man

Pursuitist Luxury Best Luxury Blog

Time Magazine has a great look at the great Anthony Bourdain and his new book Medium Raw.

There’s an in-depth review of the book, a look at the mercurial Bourdain himself, and an interview.

The book Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook, Anthony Bourdain’s long-awaited sequel to Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, went on sale on Tuesday; it should far outsell its predecessor, which came out a decade ago, before its author was a big star and before the country developed a hearty appetite for back-of-the-house tell-alls. While any number of copycat memoirs, blogs and reality shows have flourished since Bourdain’s best seller detailed his cooking years, he has moved on to other things, traveling the world for his TV show, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations; writing funny and thoughtful books based on his adventures with the show; hitting the lecture circuit hard; and generally having a good time. – From Time

  • I’m no foodie, but even I know who Anthony Bourdain is. Of course, I know him as the guy that digs street foods all over the world, particular in Southeast Asia. But I would’ve never guessed he had something or anything to say about society writ large. He does, and he aligns himself in chapters like: The Rich Eat Differently…, Lower Education, etc. He writes well, and if you’re wondering if he writes a little “too well” (i.e. he has a ghost writer), he doesn’t; he used to write novels.
