LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

A NEW FOUND RESPECT FOR BOURDAIN



We didn't use to like this man but we have a new found respect for him after we watched this episode of No Reservations. You used to be able to get the whole episode on Youtube but not anymore. How often do you see Celebrity Chefs travel around the world introducing local dishes, but never going to the stalls or restaurants that are well known to the locals?

So many! One of them is Rick Stein. We don't know what is with that bloke but he even managed to get Singapore Chilli Crab WRONG! He cooked it on his show, without gravy!!! That is a crime in Singapore and he could have gotten caned for it. Oh yes, he even recorded it on his DVDs.

We do not know if Bourdain can really cook but he sure knows good food. He isn't afraid of the not-so-clean roadside restaurants, he tries local food, he respects the local culture. He is on a death wish eating what he is eating and with his chain smoking, but hell, he is cool.
