Dubbed “the badboy of cuisine” for his rock star looks and blunt observations about the world of restaurants, chefs and cooking, Bourdain has built a reputation forbeing controversial, opinionated and always entertaining. In this rare, uncensored, live appearance, he will share the fascinating, hysterical, and sometimesshocking stories behind his life, books, travels, and his hit show. He also will take questions from the audience.
The executive chef at New York's famed bistro Les Halles, Bourdain is theauthor of the bestselling "KitchenConfidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly," a candid andhumorous portrait of his life in restaurant kitchens that has been translated into more than 28 languages. His new book, "Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook," pulls back the curtain on all of the big-time personalities of the modern gastronomical revolution, as only Bourdain can.
Other books include "Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook," "The Nasty Bits" and No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach," an illustrated journal of Bourdain's travels. Bourdain’s widely popular Emmy-nominated TV show “No Reservations,” can be seen on the TravelChannel and is currently in its fifth season.
