Medium Raw marks the return of the inimitable Anthony Bourdain, author of the blockbuster bestseller Kitchen Confidential and three-time Emmy Award-nominated host of No Reservations on TV’s Travel Channel. Bourdain calls his book, “A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook,” and he is at his entertaining best as he takes aim at some of the biggest names in the foodie world, including David Chang, Alice Waters, the Top Chef winners and losers, and many more. If Hunter S. Thompson had written a book about the restaurant business, it could have been Medium Raw.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mr. Bourdain is a vivid, bawdy, and often foul-mouthed writer. He thrills in the attack, but he is also an enthusiast who writes well about things he holds dear.” Wall Street Journal
“Bourdain has insight, access, and good taste, and he’s a naturally engaging writer…Bourdain is a hopeless romantic when it comes to food and the people who cook.” New York Times Book Review
“When you read Bourdain, you never quite know what’s going to happen in the next sentence, but you can be sure you’re in for a treat, a shock, a surprise…Anyone who starts the book is liable to lose all control and simply gobble it right up. I certainly did.” Washington Post
“Full of things everybody in the food world thinks but nobody will say…If [Bourdain’s] sharp eye and his wicked tongue have brought him acclaim, what’s kept him in the spotlight is his heart. Like Oscar Wilde, he’s a moralist in the guise of a libertine. Long may he prosper.” Denver Post
“Bourdain is back with more intriguing food fights, moving further from the kitchen into the eating industry…[Bourdain’s] dissections…are still as hilarious, as scatological and as spot-on as ever…His fare—and his prose—is still quite spicy.” BookPage
“Always entertaining, and even at times enlightening.” Booklist

A treat for fans

If you are a fan of Anthony Bourdain, his TV show and his previous book then you will find plenty to love about Medium Raw. Kitchen tales, industry gossip and plenty of opinions from the charismatic cook. Bourdain has prepared a tasty menu of his engrossing prose and serves it up with equal parts humour and anger. But the book would have benefitted from a stronger narrative structure.
