There are few figures in modern pop culture that have had such a profound impact on people like Anthony Bourdain. He transcended the “celebrity chef” figure and inspired fans to embrace authenticity in cooking, traveling, and conversation. Whether you have a profound interest in the hospitality scene or just rely on food for sustenance, Bourdain has likely influenced you in some way. That’s why documentaries are still being made and books are still being written about the late chef.
The latest look into the life of Anthony Bourdain comes to us from his longtime director and producer Tom Vitale. Vitale’s memoir In the Weeds: Around the World and Behind the Scenes with Anthony Bourdain, due out on Oct. 5, promises a transparent, “unedited” glimpse into living and working with Bourdain.
The hardcover book is available for preorder now for $25.
