Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown

I've watched a few episodes of his shows, kinda a food show with a twist. Man that guy consumes quite a wide variety of all kinds of food from all over the world. He ate some stuff in Burma I think I'd need to get my stomach pumped out if I did.

He gives a different perspective on places he visits, even Miami was very interesting. A cross between a travel, food and history show.

Tonight he is in New Jersey his childhood home. Not only does he hit all the local food joints he has some interesting interviews, over a meal of course with locals.

He shows the good and bad of places he visits, not just the tourist brochure stuff, the Nitty Gritty side of life in these places as well.

Anyhow, not bad.

    Been watching him for a long time. One of the things he espouses (paraphrased)...."if you spend money and time to go to a place foreign to you and you eat at the hotel, you screwed up. Only he would rarely use the word screw. But the intent is there....just not bleeped. :D


    One of his favorite tips was when he was in indonesia somewhere and he mentioned hot sauce on noodles. So next time I did my ramen with eggs and parmesan, I squirted a nice shot of sriracha in there. Kicked it right to the moon.

    Anthony Bourdain and Alton Brown are both tied for my favorite "Celebrity Chefs". Both are very entertaining and "real" to watch, both are very "modern" chefs, if that makes any sense.

    Bourdain has slowly, over the course of a few different shows (going back almost a decade), become more and more pro-gun, he's been shown several times on camera either slitting a pig's or lamb's throat, or shooting wild game to put on the table later on.
    His wife is a semi-professional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter and Bourdain has been getting more and more into it in the last few years. On his blog he states that one of the first thing he does now, in any new town that he goes to, is to look up a gym and a trainer to spar with while he's there. He also posts photos and videos of those trainers kicking the $#!+ out of him on a fairly regular basis.

    Alton Brown has always been very pro-gun, and occasionally posts on twitter about what he's carrying that day (usually either a Kimber 1911 or a Browning Hi Power).

    I like him a lot, and I find it interesting your take on his attitude to guns Eli,
    as it is something that I noticed too,
    iirc in NM once he went and shot targets with some locals and said that while he didn't own any, he liked them and he was clear on pointing out that responsible and legal gun owners like he was shooting with were not the problem, call it what you will, but he gets my vote, he didn't have to say anything but he stood up and told it how he saw it.

    If you like Bourdain you might like Bizarre foods with Andrew Zimmern, lot of game and whole animal eating going on as well as some really cool fermented stuff from all over the world.

    Eli, what channel and time do you get him on and what was his show called again?
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown is on CNN Sunday evenings, but plays encores/repeats at different times of the week.

    Looks like his next show June 6th was filmed in Budapest.

    What Chief said. Also, if you have Netflix, previous seasons of "Parts Unknown" as well as "No Reservations" (the show he had on Travel Channel) are both available.

    His show is very similar to Andrew Zimern's, Bizzare foods. I had watched a little of AB in the past but was turned off by his self centered, New Yawk libtard attitude! It seems he's toned things down a bit lately, and I can now tolerate him, but am skeptical considering he's on CNN!
