Chef, author of Kitchen Confidential, and host of Travel + Escape Channel’s No Reservations, Anthony Bourdain, will visit The Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts for one night only, Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 8:00pm. Bourdain will spend the evening sharing candid, and often hysterical, insights about his life’s work and travels, including an open question and answer session with the audience. Following the release of his newest best-seller, Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook, Bourdain will have plenty of new stories to share for all in attendance.
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 been profiled by CBS Sunday Morning and Nightline, and has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. No Reservations, nominated for an Emmy and widely popular all over the world, is currently in its seventh season.
