"Les Halles Cookbook" by Anthony Bourdain


Really Nice!

Why would you want Alton Brown to sign Bourdain's book?  :biggrin:

Yeah! :biggrin: And hopefully it's something more than a scribbled AB on a sticker that's pasted in the book. That's what I got in I'm Just Here for the Food .

Drink!

Yes, it's correct on the book cover itself!  :biggrin:

Considering what it costs to publish a book, this is a very nice touch ... :rolleyes:

Spell check needed on Amazon? What is this world coming to?? :laugh:

Note that in the Editorial Reviews section Eric Ripert calls the recipes "deliicious."

You Anthony Bourdain fans are a bunch of obsessed motherfuckers. Look at this listing of what people who have ordered this book have also ordered:

Customers who bought this book also bought:

Typhoid Mary: An Urban Historical by Anthony Bourdain (Why?)

Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain (Why?)

Gone Bamboo by Anthony Bourdain (Why?)

Bone in the Throat by Anthony Bourdain (Why?)

Larousse Gastronomique by Prosper Montagne (Editor), Larousse Gastronomique (Rate it)

Of course, Larousse is probably heavier than all the others put together.

Ummm... Have you read Typhoid Mary for example? That is a remarkably well researched book and a good read for any enlightened sociologist.

Don't forget that in Seattle you will get the book when you spend the evening with Bourdain at a Cooks and Books Dinner in the fall. He will sign the book for you while you dine with him at Brasa. He'll dedicate books for you to give as gifts, too. Chef Tamara Murphy will prepare a meal from Tony's recipes. I'll post more on the Pacific Northwest board soon.

looks like it will be a good book

But in the Bio it says that he is the Ex chef at Les Halles but a Chef friend of mine has had that job for some time now?

Is he still with them?

Tony sometimes cooks at Les Halles and is essentially on a consulting basis with them. He's very good friends with the owner, so he's certainly not "out" in any sense of the word.

He's also their number one cookbook salesperson.

Life is a rush into the unknown. You can duck down and hope nothing hits you, or you can stand tall, show it your teeth and say "Dish it up, Baby, and don't skimp on the jalapeños."

The more I think about it...obsessed bunch of motherfuckers... that just screams "Spank me, Mommie." I'm not sure though. It is kind of hard to hear you mumbling through that Pixie bar in your mouth. :blink::laugh: Be careful of picking on girls, M'ijo...some like to spank back!
