My introduction to the world of Anthony Bourdain began with the sound of hearing my mother laughing while reading a book in her favored chair. Not a minute passed before she was laughing again. I was getting ready for work and between trips to my coffee cup, I stopped and said, “Okay I give. What are you reading that has you cracking up so much?” She peered over her glasses, flicked the ash off of her cigarette and held up the book. I read the title. “Kitchen Confidential”. Being the saint she was she finished the book that evening. When I got home around midnight it was on my pillow. Soon it was me doing the laughing.
