No Reservations: Brittany

I liked this episode and Anthony seemed to genuinely enjoy himself and the food. He cracked me up in that striped French sailor shirt. I really liked the landscape and the description of the color that is a mix of blue, green & gray. Looks like a place I'd like to visit.

    Les crepes du froment, les crepes du ble noir, les fruits de mer, etc., etc., and of course, the very important, butter-laden desserts! :) But aside from the food, the area really is just beautiful. And, on a clear, crisp day, there's nothing better than being seaside.

    This episode has just made me so much more excited for my trip back to Brittany!

    (Also, side note: I want his job so badly!)

      "Tower of shellfish -- When do I get my tower of shellfish?" ;)
      To be perfectly honest, before that show I couldn't tell you exactly where Brittany was, and now it seems like an interesting place to visit. I'll have to put that on my list of 1,001 things I still need to do before dying.

        So beautiful. I really enjoyed this episode, and it did it's job - makes me want to travel and eat again.

          That's one region of France I've never been to, and this episode has definitely made me decide that my next trip will be centered around it. Loved the whole thing, and Bourdain was a delight. Also confirms that it's not just me -- crepes aren't unpleasant, but they're unappealing in general.

            Was there last summer, and particularly liked Rennes, Dinan, and St Malo.

              Same here. One region I haven't been to and am trying to talk my frenchman into taking a trip there. He hates the weather in Brittany--but I think after watching this episode my persuasions are starting to wear him down.

              The food looked amazing. The bread, bakery and the chef. I would love to eat at his place and my husband wants to retire there (I wish).

                It was a good one. The Sardinia show was also very good. He just needs to stay away from pseudo-political commentary and he's fine.

                  Yes, a very beautiful location. I'm a sucker for historic coastal towns. I enjoy the shows that feature locations that are accessible to everyone. While the Panamanian jungle is interesting no one is ever going to travel there.
