KNOW ONE'S ONIONS
I am enjoying Anthony Bourdain's book, Kitchen Confidential, very much. I am now "chewing" on the Second Course [p. 55 - 101] of the book. He is very frank in his opinions. Here is a great example:
"Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn. To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living. Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food." [p. 70]
Right on! Have a "bite" of this: People Eating Tasty Animals.
Talking about food, I have added a Blog called, The Making of a Restaurant.
