"Anthony Bourdain is man of many appetites.

Appetites, his first cookbook in more than ten years, boils down forty-plus years of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a tight repertoire of personal favorites--dishes that everyone should (at least in Mr. Bourdain's opinion) know how to cook..."

Singapore: In this multicultural city and port, Anthony visits a "hawker stand" and samples local favorite "bone soup" -- a hot stew of bones, marrow and an unearthly red sweet-sour sauce -- and one of his favorite dishes, steamed shark head. South Carolina: For his first taste of the South, Anthony enjoys the Hominy Grill's "Big Nasty", a heaping plate of cheese, fried chicken and gravy; then he finishes the meal off with a slice of buttermilk pie. Later, Anthony discovers the delights of crunchy pig skins.
