The Chef's Music Picks
Best-selling novelist, renowned chef, and the outwardly "food opinionated" host of the Travel Channel's No Reservations, Anthony Bourdain has some rather distinct tastes when it comes to the music he enjoys outside the kitchen. His playlist includes an eclectic dash of classic soul with some tasty pre-punk nuggets -- followed by some flavorful jazz pieces to sweeten the mix. So Anthony, is it really any wonder that I've always referred to you as a guy after my own li'l ol' foodie heart?
Anyway, you can download Chef Bourdain's picks at Rhapsody.com.
And although I have to say that he totally grossed me out cold about a week or so ago in one of his "extreme eating" segments with those cute little hamsters that are a popular lunch delicacy in the remote areas of Peru (talk about pet shop cuisine -- Yikes!), if you think you've got the stomach, as well as the b---- oh, well, never mind, be sure to tune in and follow Bourdain's world food travels on No Reservations every week on the Travel Channel. Check local listings for exact times.
Well, it seems I'm still in writer's conference-mode, and we certainly had a great one at Scandinavia House here in NYC this past weekend. Clearly, a good time was had by all.
Now, it's off to get back into the reality of the weekly grind. (Ugh) Enough said.
Make it a great Tuesday, all. Peace.
