Kitchen ConfidentialJoin us for a librarian-led discussion about Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain.

“Almost two decades ago, the New Yorker published a now infamous article, “Don’t Eat before You Read This,” by then little-known chef Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain spared no one’s appetite as he revealed what happens behind the kitchen door. The article was a sensation, and the book it spawned, the now classic Kitchen Confidential, became an even bigger sensation, a megabestseller with over one million copies in print. Frankly confessional, addictively acerbic, and utterly unsparing, Bourdain pulls no punches in this memoir of his years in the restaurant business” – Publisher.

Registration begins September 30.

Register at the McGill branch or call 604-299-8955. Once registered, bring your library card to pick up your copy of the book from the branch.
