Sounds interesting. The Kindle version is free. Not sure if that's for prime users only or not.

    I've read this book twice... once years ago when it was first published, second after the Mario scandal went down. It's a damn good book by a fine author.

    Amazon tells me I bought a copy of that book in 07 but I always likes to grab a free Kindle version when I can. However, Amazon is telling me the Kindle version is $4.99 and I'm a Prime member.

    Might have just been a limited window for free - they do that quite often. Sorry I missed out this time.

    Yep, not showing "free" for me either except for the Audible trial.

    I've read my hardcopy at least twice; it's at least as good as Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. ⤴️

    I think Burford is supposed to be releasing a new book soon about his stint living in France. Should be a good contrast to his time living in Italy while writing Heat.

    Thanks for the info. I bought the book and am enjoying it.

    The fun part will be googling all the names from the Babbo kitchen and finding out where they are today and which ones got taken down in the #MeToo movement, and not just Mario.
