Besides the chef's hat, culinary bad boy Anthony Bourdain wears many others: TV personality, best-selling author, public speaker, weary world traveler, gourmand, punk-rock aficionado, proud New Yorker and, most recently, doting father.
Culinary adventurer and self-proclaimed hedonist Anthony Bourdain has carved out a distinct place as a gastronomic Indiana Jones.
As the infamously grumpy, sharp-tongued host of No Reservations, Anthony Bourdain explores every corner of the globe on his Emmy Award winning Travel Channel series. Along the way, he encounters the weird, wild and downright outrageous personalities and places that help define the international cultural landscape.
However, it's the foreign food that best captures our host's attention. In the world of a cook, an understanding and appreciation of how others eat is akin to discovering secret societies and cryptic subcultures. Cooks have special access. As always, the food is only the first glimpse of a wider view of how people live their lives in faraway lands and unfamiliar territories.
