Almost French by Aussie journalist turned novelist Sarah Turnbull made for great, easy reading especially since the book deals with Turnbull's move to France and coping with cultural differences. Since she writes with her native, Aussie viewpoint it tied up a lot of loose ends for me in terms of trying to understand quirky Aussie ways of life!!!
Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential was rather slow to unfold but after the first two chapters I was sucked in and loving it! Wow - what a read! Something that anyone interested in knowing how the entire crazy world of cuisine functions, the dirty tricks of the trade - Bourdain's lets it ripe - all secrets are let loose! I loved this book and feel even more inspired and enthralled by the entire restaurant business and eating to be happy! Cheers, Bourdain - your a genius!
