Have you watched any of the Anthony Bourdain shows on CNN? Bourdain took a camera crew with him on little expeditions all around the world and ate local foods, on our behalf. There is no doubt in my mind that the man knows good food, but frankly I don’t really want to watch this snob stuffing weird food in his face. There are not many many people that I want to watch eat. One time there was an actress in a movie that ate food in a very sexy way. i think it was someone in the Shakespeare play, Taming of the Shrew. But it might have been a different one – I saw the movie and then I saw the same scene in a dinner theater play. But that was a very long time ago.
So, Bourdain does a pretty good job of filling you in on geography and the history of the area, he describes the native foods and films a lot of the food preparation. That was pretty interesting. Watching him eat – no so much. But the show was better than 95% of the garbage that is on TV lately, so what are you going to do?
