Bourdain provides a brash and punk-styled tour of the haute cuisine world: what it's like to work under a crush of evening orders; the cook's relationship with his sous-chef and with his station and equipment, and the other intricate and often-adversarial relationships in the kitchen; business struggles and sharp practice with the food (don't eat at brunch, have the Hollandaise sauce, order your meat well-done or have seafood on Monday, Bourdain advises).
