Publishers Text

The only thing that Tony Bourdain loves as much as cooking is traveling, and this volume is the shotgun marriage of his two greatest passions. Inspired by the question, What would be the perfect meal?, he sets out on a quest for his culinary holy Grail.

Our adventurous chef starts in Japan, where he eats fugu, a poisonous blowfish which can only be prepared by specially licensed chefs. He then travels to Cambodia and Saigon. From there, it's off to Europe… This volume recounts, in his Bourdain's inimitable style, the adventures and misadventures of America's favorite chef.
