"Do we really want to travel in hermetically sealed popemobiles through the rural provinces of France, Mexico and the Far East, eating only in Hard Rock Cafes and McDonalds? Or do we want to eat without fear, tearing into the local stew, the humble taqueria's mystery meat, the sincerely offered gift of a lightly grilled fish head? I know what I want. I want it all. I want to try everything once." Anti-chef par excellence, Bourdain travels the world in search of extreme cuisine. This passionate, adventurous spirit has won him millions of admirers throughout the world who tune in to follow his culinary journeys. He is executive chef of Les Halles Brasserie in New York City and has written two books: Kitchen Confidential and A Cook’s Tour. The latter soon became a television series in which the chef travels through a dozen countries in search of the perfect meal, captivating audiences through discussions of the exotic cuisines he encounters. He is also famous for his series No Reservations in which he travels to unusual places and comments on local food and customs with typical irony and candor. Both programs air on Gambero Rosso Channel.
