the last book I ever read (Bourdain: The Definitive Oral Biography, excerpt eleven)

from Bourdain: The Definitive Oral Biography by Laurie Woolever:

NIGELLA LAWSON: I remember saying to him—because he would have the spaghetti Bolognese [at the hotel] most nights, or an In-N-Out Burger—“Tony, the food is so bad here.” And he said, “If the food were good, it would ruin it. People would come here for the food. That’s not why you come here.”

I put my breakfast tray outside, and it would [stay there] longer and longer. And once it was up to about four trays, and I complained to him. He said, “Nigella, you’re getting the Chateau all wrong. Obviously they can’t do room service cleanup, but if you kill someone by accident, they will remove the body, no questions asked.”
