I like Anthony Bourdain, even though he comes off as arrogant to many people. But he has the right to, in many ways, because he really does know his stuff. I've seen him travel the world on his tv shows, and no matter where he goes, he eats with an open mind. I even once saw him eat the entrails of a freshly-killed hog. They squeezed out the fecal matter and chucked the intestines straight onto some hot rocks where they cooked for a few moments and were served fresh off the grill. (You could tell by his facial expression, though, that he wasn't too pleased.)

I must say that I wish he'd say his last name with correct French prononciation. After all, his dad's side is French. But we can't always have what we want, right? I suppose that in the mean time, I'll have to settle for his sarcasm, humor, sexual inuendo, culinary talents, and provocative tv shows as entertainment.

If you get the Travel Channel, it's worth it to watch his show No Reservations just to see him travel around and try foods from around the world. After all, eating the cuisine of different countries is one way we at home are able to "experience" different cultures. Anthony Bourdain's show brings that experience to the comfort of your living room. What more could you ask for?

So, what kind of educational food-and-travel show on the Travel Channel would be precluded with a parental advisory note? Why, one that's hosted by Anthony Bourdain, of course. His profanity-laced ramblings in "No Reservations" narrate us through good eats in various places, from the ordinary (Cleveland, Las Vegas) to the exotic (Laos, Egypt, etc).    Bourdain is a man of many talents: he's a French chef at New York restaurant Les Halles, a food writer (best known for restaurant industry …

From the first time I watched his show No Reservations, I found myself captivated.  Bourdain has this ability to not only show viewers the "real" side of whatever destination he is visiting, but he has this ability to blend the historical context into his shows.  You get a sense of what a particular country, community is about because of the way Bourdain skillfully blends culture, cuisine, and location into his programs.  Bourdain also has a sly cynicism and sense of humor that comes …

... have you ever made out with a girl with fetal breath?....  WHO SAYS THAT?!?!?!  oh, just Anthony Bourdain.. no big deal.    He travels, he writes, he experiences, he describes, he EATS, and he loves it all.. with no reservations!    In each one hour segment, he gives so much great detail about the destination - enough history so that you know something about the place, but don't think you're sitting through your college history course.  …
