Bourdain comes to Minneapolis

Anthony Bourdain, host of Travel Channel's 'No Reservations'I’m so ecstatic that Anthony Bourdain is coming to Minneapolis later this month that I just can’t wait to make this post.

For those of you not familiar with the name or the face, he’s known as an exceptional chef, author and host of Travel Channel’s program, “No Reservations” that recently wrapped up it’s third season.

Essentially, he tromps all over the world, emersing himself in the cultures of the people he meets along the way and tasting the foods they eat. For many, his gruff and cynical personality is a welcome antithesis to the plethora of smiley hosts you’d generally see on a food-related program (whom he enjoys poking fun at on occasion).

You can check out Bourdain as he promotes his new book, No Reservations (a companion to the show) over at Triple Rock on November 26th, starting at 7 PM. It’s all ages, and it’s free!*

* A nice alternative to the now sold-out following evening over at Solera.

    Take heed… I interviewed Bourdain in advance of this trip for MNMO: http://www.mnmo.com/media/Minnesota-Monthly/November-2007/Q-A-with-Anthony-Bourdain/

    He seemed like a really terrific guy when I talked to him.

    Ah, so envious of you Jim!!!

    That’s a great interview, thanks for posting the link! I’d always hoped he knew what great Vietnamese restaurants we have here in town, and I see now, that’s very much the case ; )
