damn, now I may have to go get his latest book

I've always liked Anthony Bourdain -
and, now that he's eating fewer disgusting things on his show on the Travel Channel, I try to remember when his show is on...
Go.
Read this.
He's even better in print...

Wait, Michael Ruhlman has a BLOG? How did I not know this?!

As re: Bourdain, well durr. That's why I have nearly all of his books (I've taken a pass on the fiction).

Ha! He made me laugh out loud, which isn't easy. I love Bourdain, but I will say that his last book was a disappointment. But I still love him.
And pegging Batali as "Rabelaisan" is sheer brilliance. I wish *I'd* thought of that!

If that man (Bourdain, not Rhulman) weren't married, I swear I'd go all stalker on his ass.

I was directed to your blog from Sarah Louise, so I'm days behind.

I LOVE Anthony Bourdain. I often add butter & shallots, just because of him. I have read almost all of his books (I haven't hit the Bio on Bloody Mary yet & am in the middle of Nasty Bits) I say read them all, I enjoy his fiction also. It is not serious & requires a strong suspension of disbelief.

If you want to read about food & cooking &"Malto Mario" I also strongly recommend Heat by Bill Buford. It was a wonderful cooking journey.
