Ein Buch wie ein Messer – scharf, kompromisslos und ein bisschen blutig Er führte ein Millionenpublikum hinter die Fassade der Nobel Cuisine – und zeigte uns die infernalischen Abgründe der Gastronomie. Seine Küche im legendären „Les Halles” in New York City war von derselben Leidenschaft, Besessenheit und Kompromisslosigkeit durchströmt wie die Bücher, die ihn auch als Autor weltberühmt machten – allen voran »Geständnisse eines Küchenchefs«. Heute, ein Jahrzehnt später, sind ratgebende Starköche medienpräsenter als schaumschlagende Politiker. Das Kochen ist vom Handwerk zum Hobby und schließlich zur Lifestyle-Rubrik mutiert – zur quotenheischenden Wohlfühlberieselung. In seinem neuen Buch rechnet Anthony Bourdain mit diesem „Imperium der Mittelmäßigkeit” ab und erinnert daran, was in einer Küche fließen muss. Nicht Balsamicoreduktion, sondern Blut, Schweiß und Tränen. Mit 28 Jahren Berufserfahrung in den härtesten Küchen der Welt, der Zen-Weisheit eines Lebenskünstlers und dem ungetrübten Blick eines Outlaws gibt Bourdain schnörkellose Antworten auf brennende Fragen. Warum bezahlen die reichsten Menschen der Welt verlässlich Unsummen für den schlechtesten Fraß? Warum machen die renommiertesten Köche Werbung für den größten Schrott? Was muss jeder Mensch kochen können, um als mündiger Bürger durchzugehen? Anthony Bourdains Aufruf für eine neue Küche ist denkbar einfach: weniger Bullshit, mehr Genuss!

Millions of people fantasize about leaving their old lives behind, enrolling in cooking school, and training to become a chef. But for those who make the decision, the difference between the dream and reality can be gigantic—especially at the top cooking school in the country.

In Beaten, Seared, and Sauced he tells hilarious and harrowing stories of life at the CIA as he and his classmates navigate the institution’s many rules and customs under the watchful and critical eyes of their instructors. Each part of the curriculum is covered, from knife skills and stock making to the high-pressure cooking tests and the daunting wine course (the undoing of many a student). Dixon also details his externship in the kitchen of Danny Meyer’s Tabla, giving readers a look into the inner workings of a celebrated New York City restaurant. With the benefit of his age to give perspective to his experience, Dixon delivers a gripping day-to-day chronicle of his transformation from amateur to professional. From the daily tongue-lashings in class to learning the ropes—fast—at a top NYC kitchen, Beaten, Seared, and Sauced is a fascinating and intimate first-person view of one of America’s most famous culinary institutions and one of the world’s most coveted jobs.

After many decades, if not centuries, of neglect of fine food and high-level restaurants in Britain, we are seeing a massive explosion of interest in food, cooking, and dining out. Christel Lane's book charts the process of this transformation and examines top contemporary restaurants and their chefs. The Cultivation of Taste presents a comparative study of Michelin-starred restaurants in Britain and Germany, focusing on two countries without an indigenous haute cuisine but which nevertheless have developed internationally reputed fine-dining sectors, and comparing their development to the fine-dining culture in France. Written from a sociological perspective, chefs are portrayed as part of a complex network, in their relationships with their employees, their customers, gastronomic critics, suppliers of food, and even their financiers. It will appeal to academics in the areas of economic and cultural sociology, and those with an interest in small entrepreneurial firms and their work relations, but also to all those who have an interest in fine-dining restaurants and the chef patrons at the centre of them. The book draws on a large number of interviews with renowned chefs, diners, and Michelin inspectors to provide an unprecedented insight into what goes on in Michelin-starred restaurants—what makes their chefs tick, intrigues their critics, and beguiles or annoys their customers. Restaurants are viewed not simply as businesses but as cultural enterprises that shape our taste in food, ambience, and sociality.

Vom angry young man zum Ausnahme-Unternehmer Halb Genie, halb Wahnsinniger, Guru, Choleriker und Kontrollfreak – das ist das vorherrschende Bild, das sich die Welt von Steve Jobs gemacht hat. Jobs selbst hat zu seinen Lebzeiten dieses Image gern gepflegt, und seine Biographen sind ihm bereitwillig gefolgt. Vier Jahre nach seinem Tod im Oktober 2011 ist es nun an der Zeit, ein klareres Bild des Apple-Gründers zu zeichnen, ein Bild, das frei ist von Klischees und Vorurteilen. Brent Schlender begleitete Steve Jobs über zwanzig Jahre lang, der engen Freundschaft der beiden verdanken wir tiefe Einblicke in das Leben des Unternehmers und in das Imperium von Apple. Auf Grundlage zahlreicher Gespräche mit Jobs selbst, mit engsten Vertrauten und Weggefährten wie Tim Cook oder auch Bill Gates ist ein ebenso differenziertes wie leidenschaftliches Porträt entstanden, das in seinem Kern der Frage nachgeht, wie aus einem ungestümen jungen Gründer die wichtigste Unternehmerpersönlichkeit unserer Zeit reifen konnte. Die Nähe Schlenders und das Knowhow Tetzelis – beide gehören zu den profiliertesten Technikjournalisten und zu den besten Kennern der Silicon-Valley-Szene – machen Becoming Steve Jobs zu einer mitreißenden Geschichte der Technologie-Ära und zu einer Biographie, die den Unternehmer nicht zur Ikone erhebt, sondern den Menschen hinter dem Mythos zum Vorschein bringt.
