Teaser Tuesday: Medium Raw by Anthony Bourdain

But my low opinion of the Food Network actually went back a little further in time. Back to when they were a relatively tiny, sat-sack start-up with studios on the upper floors of an office building on Sixth Avenue, a viewership up about eight people, and the production values of late-night public-access porn.

-- Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook by Anthony Bourdain.

I get a kick out of anything Anthony Bourdain writes, and this latest collection of essays is no exception. I am listening to him read the audio book edition, which makes it all the better. I have been barking with laughter.

The only thing that catches me off guard is his blue language. We swear a lot in my house -- to the point where I don't hear swear words in ordinary conversation. But hearing the same words in a "production" like an audiobook brings them to my attention. I've learned a couple I plan to incorporate.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event. 


  1. Oh my...I wonder what words you want to incorporate into your vocabulary.

    My TT

  2. I'm not a fan of Anthony Bourdaine and one reason is his profanity-laden language. I also think of him as a food snob, but then what do I know? I do recognize his talent.

  3. I'm a huge fan and would devour this book.
