August's Book: Medium Raw, by Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain joins us for the Leonard Lopate Show Book Club! We’re talking about his latest book, Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook, the follow-up to his hit book Kitchen Confidential. It’s an account of Bourdain's unexpected voyage from journeyman cook, to globe-traveling professional eater and drinker, to father. Bourdain offers rants and raves, investigations and interrogations of some major figures in food, and he pays homage to the hard working men and women behind the scenes in every restaurant

The Washington Post writes of Medium Raw: “When you read Bourdain, you never quite know what’s going to happen in the next sentence, but you can be sure you’re in for a treat, a shock, a surprise…Anyone who starts this book is liable to lose all control and simply gobble it right up.
