Food celebrity Anthony Bourdain and publishing imprint Ecco (of HarperCollins Pubishers), have announced the first three titles to be published under Bourdain’s new line of books.
First up, Roy Choi, Los Angeles based restaurateur and co-founder of the Kogi Bbq Korean taco food truck, pens Spaghetti Junction. The book is Choi’s memoir/cookbook that explores Los Angeles street food. “This book shows you how I see things.” states Choi. “This is a book that searches the appetite of a city that grew right before my eyes and shows you how I cook. And how a city constantly pushed me against the current to find my flavor.”
The second book will be Daniel Vaughn’s Prophets of Smoked Meat, which promises to be the “definitive guide to the best of classic Texas barbecue” and will feature recipes for all the Texas smokehouse classics including sides. Bourdain hails Vaughn as “the Yoda of Barbecue” with “impeccable smoked meat credentials.”
Bourdain’s line of books will cross genres in its third release with Fight Shark, a memoir by kickboxing champion Mark Miller. The book details Miller’s family tragedies, struggles with addiction and his unprecedented return to competitive Muay Thai fighting after recovering from open heart surgery.
All three titles are scheduled for publication next year.
