A Release Date for Anthony Bourdain’s Highly Anticipated Cookbook Has Been Announced

‘Appetites’ is set to hit shelves on October 25, 2016

The cookbook is Bourdain’s first in 10 years.

Bourdain fans, mark your calendars. The well-traveled chef’s cookbook, Appetites, co-authored with Laurie Woolever, will be released on October 25, 2016. The news was officially revealed on an Instagram post from Ecco Books, the HarperCollins imprint that is publishing the book.

Pictured in the post are Bourdain and Daniel Halpern, the founding editor of Ecco Books. Bourdain is holding a copy of the book, though the caption indicates that the final cover art will be revealed in April. According to Eater, the cover art will be created by legendary cartoonist Ralph Steadman, who is best known for his work with “Gonzo” journalist Hunter S. Thompson.


As for the Ina Garten shoutout in the post, when Bourdain first revealed his plans for the book he said he had “morphed into a psychotic, anally retentive, bad-tempered Ina Garten.” Appetites will feature recipes from Bourdain’s extensive travels and home life.
