ABOUT THE BOOK No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach is based off the content and experiences of Anthony Bourdain during filmings of the widely popular Travel Channel show, No Reservations. Anthony Bourdain, the host of the show, travels the world, showcasing foods ranging from late night street food, to a meal cooked by a Maharana. Not intending for this book to be some cynical, cheap-ass companion book to the series, Bourdain includes photos that were taken along the way mostly by the shows production assistants. Although this book does complement the show, and gives a more in-depth view of many favorite episodes, it could also stand on its own as a photographic travelogue. As Bourdain says in the introduction, the books photos try to give viewers a brief taste, a sense of what [they] felt during the relatively short time [they] were there, instead of doing a best of, or, even worse, attempting to create a comprehensive view of the place. MEET THE AUTHOR Nicole Bemboom is a San Francisco based writer. In addition to writing for the exciting new publisher Hyperink, she covers the best of modern craft and design for the online magazine Handful of Salt. She received her BA in Modern Literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Anthony Bourdains No Reservations follows his team as they travel the world making the show. Frequently travelling with Bourdain are Tracey Gudwin (field producer), Todd Liebler (cameraman), and Diane Schutz and Rennik Soholt (assistant producers). The crew took photos throughout in almost thirty countries, meeting an incredible diversity of people and eating an insane variety of foods. Bourdain hopes these photos, along with the show, will reveal a real sense of the places they see the smells and the sounds, as well as the visual elements. The cast allows the country and the circumstances (and misadventures) of their travels to drive the content and style of the show. They often also heavily use the cinema of the country they visit. To begin this journey around the world, Bourdain declares that deep inside every great cook... anyone who knows what the good stuff is and what to do with itlurks the heart and soul of a Chinese guy. Generally considered to have one of the greatest cuisines in the world, China serves as Bourdains go-to locale.

"The difference between Gordon Ramsay and a talking pig is that Gordon Ramsay never shuts up." —From Kitchen Con Our consumer culture can’t help but get wrapped up in designer crazes— these days our collective attention is focused on the designer food frenzy. Chefs are our newest celebrities and their restaurants are their stages, but hidden behind the elegant façade of fine dining exists the stark and sometimes shocking reality of the food industry. Renowned food critic Trevor White exposes what goes on behind the scenes in the high-stakes world of the restaurateur. Diners, be forewarned: this biting critique of restaurant culture shows today’s most celebrated restaurants for what they really are: greedy, ostentatious businesses solely dedicated to the fame of their owners. Kitchen Con pays tribute to the history of dining out, starting with the first restaurants and moving on to the most fashionable and well-known kitchens in New York, Paris and London. Witty, humourous and polished, White takes his reader on a whirlwind trip through the restaurant racket, sparing no one!
