2010/2011 Lectures

Anthony Bourdain/Eric Ripert (2011 Season)

Sun, May 1, 2011 @ 4:00 PM, Arlington Theatre

Nobody takes a bite out of life’s rich pageant like Anthony Bourdain, writer and chef-host of the Travel Channel’s No Reservations and author of the bestseller Medium Raw. No culture is too remote, no raw lizard leg too exotic. Bourdain teams with the charming Eric Ripert of Bravo TV’s Top Chef and Executive Chef at the celebrated Le Bernardin restaurant in New York City – one of GQ magazine’s “Seven Food Temples of the World” and Zagat’s “Best Food” in New York City for seven consecutive years – in a conversation that is likely to be as colorful as it is enticing.

Presented as part of the FOOD for THOUGHT series.

Pre-signed books will be available for purchase at the lecture.
