With the wit and pace of Anthony Bourdain, Italian chef and anthropologist Leonardo Lucarelli sketches the exhilarating life behind the closed doors of restaurants, and the unlikely work ethics of the kitchen.   In Italy, five-star restaurants and celebrity chefs may seem, on the surface, a part of the landscape.
