A nice little interview with Anthony Bourdain
See here: http://dcist.com/2009/01/chewing_the_...
I love how he disses Alice Waters ... "Alice Waters annoys the living shit out of me."
tony should consider doing a serious interview with jeremiah tower (is he still alive?). a verbal history of california cuisine before it became california cuisine would be a hoot. i suspect the two could spend hours "dishing" on alice.
re: batali and the spain show. i think tony is suffering from a bit of envy. i'm not sure current financial conditions would/could allow a sequel. if money could be found, i'm sure tony would love to be a part.
just my $0.02.
Good stuff. Thanks for posting. I saw Bourdain speak in Philly on a book tour a couple of years ago. In the realm of celebrity TV chefs, he comes across as one of the most genuine.
As far as Spain goes, I would have to agree with Tony and most of the other posters. My theory is that they use VERY small cameras and everyone just forgets that they're making a television show.
Thanks for the link--he's always been an interesting guy. I like that he admits his life and outlook has changed after fatherhood and traveling ---still smart, but lowering the snark percentage. Good interview. And I agree, the Spain show was awful...
