Medium Raw was not as impressive as his first book [b:Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly|33313|Kitchen Confidential Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly|Anthony Bourdain|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348988611s/33313.jpg|4219], which I absolutely fell in love with. I enjoyed his witty dialogue that seems to be a consistent style of Bourdain, however the topic wasn't my cup of tea. I consider myself a bit of a "foodie" and have been called a "food snob" by others, I also find myself watching cooking show and challenges but don't have an extensive working knowledge of the chefs in the business. Bourdain tells his side of the "famous chef" following that has become quite popular recently. As fascinating as it could sound, this didn't impress me and I found myself bored! Bored is not something that should happen when Bourdain's voice is telling a tale. He is such a great storyteller that this wasn't a total loss and I can't wait to try another of his books, especially as an audio book.
