Chef, author of Kitchen Confidential and host of The Travel Channel’s “No Reservations,” Anthony Bourdain has been dubbed “the bad boy of cuisine” for his rock star look and blunt observations about the world of restaurants, chefs and cooking.
Bourdain, the executive chef at New York’s famed bistro Les Halles, 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 that has been translated into over 28 languages. His book, A Cook’s Tour, published in conjunction with his series on the Food Network, was also a bestseller in the U.S. and the U.K.
A contributing authority for Food Arts magazine, his work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times and Gourmet. He has shared his insights about team building and crisis management with the Harvard Business Review. He has also been profiled by “CBS Sunday Morning” and “Nightline” and appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”
“No Reservations,” nominated for an Emmy and widely popular all over the world, wrapped up its fifth season in March and began its sixth this summer on the Travel Channel. Bourdain continues to travel to the farthest reaches of the globe and explores destinations from rural Laos to a struggling New Orleans.
