Storyline

Anthony Bourdain had no reservations about a move to CNN. Shortly after concluding an eight-season stint at the helm of his popular Travel Channel series, the equally popular Emmy-winning host came to the news network searching for "Parts Unknown." In the hourlong weekend series -- similar in premise to Travel's "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (2005)" -- Bourdain explores the world to, he says, "eat and drink with people without fear and prejudice ... they open up to you in ways that somebody visiting who is driven by a story may not get." Enticed by the opportunity to experience cultures rarely visited by American TV, such as in the Congo, Libya and Myanmar, the chef and best-selling author also takes viewers to Colombia, Peru, Morocco and, closer to home, Koreatown in Los Angeles.

Avoids painful realities
5 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Most Asian places featured so far (Vietnam, Singapore, Shanghi) consume copious amounts of dog meat. I guess CNN thinks that most Americans would find this so disgusting that they would turn it off. Tony has made it clear that he has no moral problems with eating anything that moves or moved and has no problem with how the animal was kept before being slaughtered. He is into maximum taste. Nothing else matters. My point is that if the shows purports to give an overview of popular local cuisine, it should include dog meat and show how the dogs are tortured before being skinned alive. This is what you witness in Vietnam, not nice happy chefs butchering a pig that was killed humanely.
