That's right - yet another blog post dedicated to Anthony Bourdain. I can't help it - I love the guy!
Last night was a lazy sort of night. We got in two episodes of No Reservations - one where he was touring around Chile and one where he has Zamir (from the Romania episode!) come to the USA and go with him to Baltimore, Detroit and Buffalo. We knew we were in for a good episode when Zamir came on the screen! While in Baltimore, Bourdain met up with not one but two stars from The Wire, which he called, "the greatest show on television". Given that we just finished season 1 a couple of weeks ago and season 2 is almost here via the library, we loved that comment.
While in Buffalo, which we thought was very similar to MKE, we started strategizing how we could get Bourdain to come to Wisconsin. He could even stay in our guestroom, ha ha ha.
During commercial breaks, I finished Kitchen Confidential! I really enjoyed it. I felt like I was reading an episode of No Reservations - his personality is all over the book. Part of the book also took place in Les Halles, which of course we visited in NYC so that was fun to read and think back to my meal there (even though Bourdain isn't there anymore).
