A Cook's Tour

In Search of the Perfect Meal

by Anthony Bourdain

Title Details

Abridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs.


The only thing Tony Bourdain loves as much as cooking is travelling, and "A Cook's Tour" is the shotgun marriage of his two greatest passions. Inspired by the question, 'What would be the perfect meal?', Tony sets out on a quest for his culinary holy grail.

Our adventurous chef starts out in Japan, where he eats traditional Fugu, a poisonous blowfish which can be prepared only by specially licensed chefs. He then travels to Cambodia, up the mine-studded road to Pailin into autonomous Khmer Rouge territory and to Phnom Penh's Gun Club, where local fare is served up alongside a menu of available firearms. In Saigon, he's treated to a sustaining meal of live Cobra heart before moving on to savour a snack with the Viet Cong in the Mekong Delta. Further west, "Kitchen Confidential" fans will recognize the Gironde of Tony's youth, the first stop on his European itinerary. And from France, it's on to Portugal, where an entire village has been fattening a pig for months in anticipation of his arrival. And we're only halfway around the globe...

"A Cook's Tour" recounts, in Bourdain's inimitable style, the adventures and misadventures of America's favourite chef.
