Anthony Bourdain (2009 Season)

Fri, Feb 27, 2009 @ 8:00 PM, Arlington Theatre

No Reservations – An Evening with Anthony Bourdain

“Bourdain shows himself to be one of the country’s best food writers. His opinions are as strong as his language, and his tastes as infectious as his joy.” The New York Times Book Review

Chef, author of the New York Times bestseller Kitchen Confidential, and host of the Travel Channel’s Emmy-nominated show No Reservations Anthony 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. The executive chef at New York’s famed bistro Les Halles and contributing authority for Food Arts magazine, Bourdain is a sharp, edgy, wickedly funny speaker who dishes on everything culinary – from the traditional cooking of rural Laos to crisis management in 5-star Manhattan kitchens.
