Ep103 - Anthony Bourdain | No Reservations

Talks at Google

Anthony Bourdain was an American celebrity chef, author, and journalist but was probably mostly widely known for his book Kitchen Confidential and as the host of the travel documentary series, No Reservations, and Parts Unknown. Born in New York City, his career was widely regarded as that of a controversial and outspoken bad-boy-rock-star of the culinary world pulling no punches on his opinions, critiques, commentary and more about the world of food and its inhabitants. But behind the scenes Bourdain was a powerful journalist, philanthropist and advocate, working hard to address injustice and inequality in the areas of food culture, racism, immigration, and sexual harassment in the restaurant and entertainment worlds. Going back to 2011 for his first Talks at Google appearance along with the creative team of The Layover, here is Anthony Bourdain. Visit http://g.co/TalksAtGoogle/Bourdain to watch the video.

Episode 86: Anthony Bourdain (unaired interview from April 2014)

Andrew Talks to Chefs

A never-before-aired, recently rediscovered interview with Anthony Bourdain, whom we lost a year ago this week. On April 29, 2014, Tony was kind and generous enough to sit down over lunch with Andrew for a two-part conversation, covering everything from his early days as a cook to his transition to a writer and television icon, to coping with fame, meeting his idols, how the industry has changed over the years, and speaking his mind. Originally recorded for print use in a busy restaurant, the audio quality isn't world class (though we've doctored it to the best of our abilities), here's a rare chance to hear approximately 90 "new" minutes with one of the most influential and transformative figures the industry has ever known, in a very casual, relaxed dialogue. Hope it helps listeners remember a peak career moment in his life. Special thanks to Julia Sexton--a cook-turned-writer/editor who was inspired by Bourdain (as we all were)--for joining Andrew for the introduction. We encourage you to listen to Andrew and Julia's recollections and observations; actual interview begins about 33 minutes in. Cook free or die! Andrew Talks To Chefs is powered by Simplecast.
