Maybe it’s cliché, but Anthony Bourdain played a big role in my understanding of food and restaurant culture. From the gritty realness of Kitchen Confidential to taking us along on his adventures in No Reservations, Bourdain’s take is unique and always entertaining.
Since autumn starts today, it seemed like a good time to look forward to Bourdain’s visit to Detroit on October 30 (Buy tickets). I’m not sure what to expect from Bourdain on stage (I missed him the last time he spoke in Detroit), but I imagine it’ll be a good time. We can look forward to candid comments on celebrity chefs (especially his arch-enemy Guy Fieri), traveling, and maybe even his favorite spots to visit in Detroit. He’s touring in support of Appetites, his first cookbook in nearly 10 years, so expect some recipe talk too.
In a couple of weeks, we will be hosting a ticket giveaway. One lucky winner will win 2 tickets to see Bourdain opine for the evening. Stayed tuned here and on Facebook and Instagram to find how to win those tickets.
