If I manage to keep my eyes propped open I'm going to be one tired cookie tomorrow - lol!!!!

and they are all new. I am drawn to them like a moth to the fire, that is why I am still up watching them though the alarm time gets closer and closer. This Iceland show is Awesome!

Well - I hope they repeat it, because of course I fell asleep before the Iceland show & wanted to see that one. Figures.

But I did enjoy the other ones immensely - especially Ireland, since I'm a big Guinness fan - lol!!

I saw part of Tony's marathon yesterday. I saw it from 8 - 11 pm. The Ireland show is new. Even my husband who is not a foodie, loves Tony Bourdain.

I love the show. I watched the Iceland show last night and it was great. I'm not sure if I would have tried the rotted shark chunks though.

All in all - getting the issue of "smoking" out of the way (good grief - "get a room" or start another topic please - lol!!) - after reading his books & watching the show, I do again reiterate that Anthony Bourdain is not only a good chef, but a true "foodie".

I really feel that there are a lot of "chefs" out there who, while they may make terrific meals, aren't nearly as interested in "food" & culture as Mr. Bourdain is. His show is, truly, one of a kind.

You are right BC. My apologies for getting off topic. I have removed all the smoking posts and created a new thread for those to reside in. It can be found here.

I agree with you. AB is a real foodie. He is in it for the food, not the fame, money, or anything else. I am reading his book, Kitchen Confidential, right now and the things he describes are horrifying. Why anyone would would want to do things like that for a living is beyond me. yet at the same time, even though the things he describes are horrible, it makes me wish I was doing them. He has true passion for food and it really shows.

I'm guessing that is Anthony Bourdain, and not Alton Brown, right GB?

Thanks,
John

Yes John, you guessed right. I was wondering how long it would be before I had to clarify myself on that one. I thought about typing his name out, but alas, laziness won out.

I'm a fan. I was a bit unsure about Bourdain until I saw the Beirut episode. Kinda opened a new dimension about his attitude. That and I swear like a sailor as well! Feels like I know the guy.
