  • La Mafia a suscité tant de livres, tant de films et de feuilletons qu'on pourrait croire qu'aucun lecteur ne peut encore s'intéresser aux énièmes histoires d'un monde connu par coeur.
    Anthony Bourdain réussit pourtant l'exploit de nous passionner avec un thriller que le quotidien londonien The Independent trouve " very noir, very New York ". Le héros de La Surprise du chef ne souhaite pas suivre les traces de son oncle, un tueur obèse et impitoyable qui se goinfre de pizzas. Car le jeune Tommy est plus dégoûté encore par le goût des mafiosi pour la " malbouffe " que par leur cruauté.
    Son rêve est de devenir un chef pour lequel la grande cuisine n'aura plus de secrets. L'éditeur de Montalban parie que Pepe Carvalho aimerait ce polar gastronomique et son auteur, car Anthony Bourdain est un professionnel de la cuisine depuis des années et dirige à New York un restaurant réputé : la Brasserie des Halles.

  • Avocats marrons, les cuistots sans illusions, les pyromanes en cavale et les témoins sous protection qui traînent sur les plages des Antilles. Mon héros, mon héroïne, je les voulais paresseux, avides, dissolus, en un mot des cas désespérés. Tels que je me vois moi-même.
    Ai-je réussi dans mon entreprise ? Je l'ignore. En tout cas, je peux vous dire que les individus qui sont payés pour étudier ce genre de bouquins dans les studios d'Hollywood ont trouvé mes personnages révoltants.
    Je conseillerai à mes lecteurs d'ouvrir une boîte de Red Stripe, de se passer un peu d'ambre solaire sur le corps et de reprendre leur lecture. Et surtout de ne pas prêter à ces détails plus d'attention qu'aux poux de sable ou aux marchands ambulants qui proposent des billets de loterie ou des colliers de coquillages aux baigneurs. Posez le livre, buvez une autre bière, piquez une tête dans l'eau... faites l'amour... lisez un autre chapitre... Et, surtout, qu'il reste des grains de sable entre les pages. "

  • APPETITES

    Anthony Bourdain

    Anthony Bourdain is a man of many appetites. And for many years, first as a chef, later as a world-traveling chronicler of food and culture on his CNN series Parts Unknown , he has made a profession of understanding the appetites of others. These days, however, if he's cooking, it's for family and friends. Appetites, his first cookbook in more than ten years, boils down forty-plus years of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a tight repertoire of personal favorites--dishes that everyone should (at least in Mr. Bourdain's opinion) know how to cook. Once the supposed "bad boy" of cooking, Mr. Bourdain has, in recent years, become the father of a little girl--a role he has embraced with enthusiasm. After years of traveling more than 200 days a year, he now enjoys entertaining at home. Years of prep lists and the hyper-organization necessary for a restaurant kitchen, however, have caused him, in his words, to have "morphed into a psychotic, anally retentive, bad-tempered Ina Garten." The result is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other, with personal favorites from his own kitchen and from his travels, translated into an effective battle plan that will help you terrify your guests with your breathtaking efficiency.
