No Reservations: An Evening with Anthony Bourdain

Chef, author, and host of The Travel Channel's "No Reservations," Anthony Bourdain has been dubbed "the bad boy of cuisine" for his rock star looks and blunt observations about the world of restaurants, chefs and cooking.

Bourdain, the executive chef at New York's famed bistro Les Halles, is the author of the bestselling Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, a candid, hysterical, and sometimes shocking portrait of life in restaurant kitchens that has been translated into over 28 languages. His book, A Cook's Tour, published in conjunction with his series on the Food Network, was also a bestseller in the U.S. and the U.K.

His other books are Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook, The Nasty Bits and No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach, an illustrated journal of Bourdain's travels. His crime novels include The Bobby Gold Stories and Bone in the Throat.

A contributing authority for Food Arts magazine, his work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times and Gourmet. He has shared his insights about team building and crisis management with the Harvard Business Review.
"No Reservations," nominated for an Emmy and widely popular all over the world, is currently in its fifth season. Bourdain continues to travel to the farthest reaches of the globe exploring destinations from rural Laos to a struggling New Orleans.
