The host of the CNN series "Parts Unknown" has announced plans for a North American tour that will visit 15 cities to promote the release of 'Appetites'.

To coincide with the release of "Appetites," Anthony Bourdain -- best known as the former enfant terrible of the food world and the irreverent host of the CNN series "Parts Unknown" -- has announced plans to hit the road this fall in a live North American tour and stage act that will visit 15 cities.

"The Hunger" tour kicks off on the east coast in October in Boston and New York, before heading out west to Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Toronto will be Bourdain's only Canadian stop.

Described as a book for the home cook, "Appetites" distills 40 years of travel and professional cookery into a repertoire of some of the chef's favorite recipes -- dishes he serves his own family and friends in his New York home.

Expect comfort foods like roast chicken with lemon and butter, and candied sweet potatoes -- minus the marshmallows.

Photos are taken by Bobby Fisher and the cover illustrated by British cartoonist Ralph Steadman, best known for his collaborations with Hunter S. Thompson.

The book also features a bonus pull-out poster of a deconstructed burger, as seen by Nathan Myhrvold, the culinary scientist behind the encyclopedic series "Modernist Cuisine."

"Appetites" is published by Ecco and out October 25, 2016. The book retails for $37.50 (approx. RM145.75) and is now available for pre-order.
