APPETITES: A COOKBOOK BY ANTHONY BOURDAIN
P1355, NATIONAL BOOKSTORE
Appetites reflects Anthony Bourdain’s personality: spunky, snarky and scrumptious. The cookbook is not only filled with recipes of dishes he regularly cooks at home and of those he has encountered during his many globe-trotting adventures—the photography is equally dynamic and exciting, making it almost like an anti-cookbook in its presentation. Don’t expect any immaculate food shots lit to perfection. Instead, you get food as the TV personality sees fit: at all turns messy, slurpy, comforting and explosive.
