Appetites, Bourdain’s first cookbook in more than ten years, boils down forty-plus years of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a tight repertoire of personal favorite dishes that everyone should know how to cook. The result is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other, with personal favorites from his own kitchen and from his travels, translated into an effective battle plan that will help you terrify your guests with your breathtaking efficiency.

Anthony Bourdain returns to the kitchen with Appetites: A Cookbook. Being Bourdain, though, this isn’t your typical cookbook, and while it’s ostensibly filled with recipes that he and his family enjoy, there’s a certain amount of gleeful savagery in the pictures that populate the book. It’s a Halloween sort of cookbook, really.
