Mr. Anthony Bourdain is bringing his Guts & Glory tour (www.AnthonyBourdainonTour.com) to 12 cities this fall. Sadly, NYC isn’t one of them but he did talk in Brooklyn earlier this Summer. The chef, author, and television host (Travel Channel’s Emmy Award-winning Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, The Layover) will visit cities for one night, sharing candid, often hysterical insights about his life’s work and travels, including an open question and answer session with the audience. Sounds like a great time!
The “chef-at-large” at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, Bourdain is the author of the bestselling Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, a candid, hysterical, and sometimes shocking portrait of life in restaurant kitchens – as well as his newest work, the bestselling graphic novel Get JIRO!, and several other titles.
2013 will see the premiere of two new television shows hosted by Bourdain: The Taste, a cooking competition series for ABC, and a docu-series for CNN, expanding the network’s coverage of travel, culture, and cuisine.
In addition to ten solo shows by Bourdain, Eric Ripert will join his friendly nemesis for two of their popular Good vs. Evil shows in Ft. Worth (November 9) and Houston (November 10). Ripert is the Chef and Co-Owner of New York City’s universally acclaimed Le Bernardin, is the host of PBS’s Emmy Award-winning Avec Eric, and served as guest judge (and “fan favorite”) on Bravo’s Top Chef for the past four seasons. His newest series, On the Table, premiered in July 2012 on YouTube’s Reserve Channel.
Select cities go on-sale August 17th. Additional information may be found at www.AnthonyBourdainonTour.com, on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/AnthonyBourdainonTour, or on Twitter @bourdaintour.
