It really doesn't get any better than this
18 September 2012 | by ukkid35See all my reviews

If you want to see how a 'food programme' (although no Bourdain programme could really be described as such) is transformed in to a war documentary, then you need to watch this. The best journalist is someone who makes you understand what it would be like if you were caught up in the madness, and Bourdain excels at that. His empathy with his entourage is deeply affecting, and his 'patriotism' is for me at least, totally excusable, for reasons that are blindingly obvious.

The prism through which Bourdain views and describes the world is unique yet totally accessible. Food is after all what nourishes us all, and the effect is to make everything seem entirely real.
