Anthony Bourdain Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

In the modern day of "Reality" TV scams, there are few channels I can watch without rushing to the gun rack and putting the barrel in my mouth. One channel that I can usually rely on is The Travel Channel. Most of their talent can be a little too sugar coated for my bitter hateful heart, but one true master of television always brings faith back into my tv --Anthony Bourdain.

I know his show is produced and scripted, but it doesn't matter. The dude holds down "reality" for me when it comes to how he writes. I also like how he calls people out on his show and talks shit.

 

 

So I think this dude deserves some appreciation. One of the best shows on TV hands down.

agreed, every time I travel I try to think "What would Bourdain Do?". I always try to go to local spots and do what the locals do. I hate cheesy tourist stuff

I watch his show all the time. The man knows how to travel properly (cameras and crew aside) and has one of the coolest J-O-B's ever. Yep.

i like the way he goes about cutting the bullshit and portrays the real essence of the

people/places he visits.

bourdain is pretty much my hero. i worked fine dining restaurants as a butcher, saucier, prep bitch, dishwasher, etc for about a decade. i've seen just about every side of the restaurant industry in America and his books and shows are so thoroughly on point.

Cocaine is considered coffee in the restaurant industry.

 

Bourdain speaks openly about his past. To be honest, I have friends who while in Culinary school had him visit. From what I hear, the dude still parties like it's 1983.

Bourdain is the only celebrity i have the autograph of. He was doing a book signing down the street from an old job I had and one of the servers went to it and had him sign a food ticket for the cooks. I'll look for it.

i love no reservations and i especially love how he sarcastically pokes fun of the food network chefs.

however, i hated his episode on korea. it sucked and his stupid korean assistant is an idiot for showing

him what she did or didn't.

the chapter in kitchen confidential regarding why he originally wanted to be a chef is epic... he watched a chef fuck a scendelous freshly married woman n knew it was his calling
