Anthony's larger than life friend, chef Jose Andres, enthusiastically shows him the natural and culinary wonders of his rustic homeland of Asturias, Spain. They also recreate a scene from Apocalypse ...
A Cook's Tour is a travel and food show in which the host - Anthony Bordain visits exotic and interesting cities around the world where the hosts of different restaurants teach him about local cuisine and culture.
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.Written by
Very well done cooking, traveling, and current news programing. Antney does an excellent job introducing us to so many different types of foods, cultures, locals, et al. He really entices me to try all of these things and travel to all of these different places. He is excellent at bringing in a local and hanging out with them as though they were just good friends. You can tell he is authentic because it doesn't look like he's trying to hard. Bravo Antney... Impressive that CNN also brought this into their network and put a news spin on it... Very Very well done. I caught a few shows in a row on Libya, Burma, and LA Korea Town. All of these were fantastic. I was amazed that one person wanted to take Antney to Sizzler and he still went... shows that he is really listening to the locals no matter what they want to do. The Libya program and Burma were just amazing... a cook going around war torn areas... amazing.
