kitchen confidential: adventures in the culinary underbelly by anthony bourdain is a behind-the-scenes look at being a chef in gourmet restaurants mostly in and around new york city. it’s a colorful book, with some great characters including bourdain himself. it is also a very personalized story — it’s not just a generic look at the restaurant business.

i popped this in the library queue after andrei mentioned it.
