Anthony Bourdain might be one of the sexiest men alive. He's a kitchen God. He's my ultimate chef crush. He's 6'4" (I like 'em tall). He's got a mouth like a sailor. He allowed himself to go naturally gray...no Just For Men Gel for this dude. He CAN believe it's not butter. He's a realist. He writes how he talks. Gives it to ya straight. He'll try anything once. He knows a good knife is probably the only utensil you truly need in a kitchen. He hates garlic presses. He won't eat mussels in a restaurant, unless he knows the chef personally. I can't confirm this, but I bet you won't find a plastic lemon in his kitchen. And I guarantee he'd love my Food Faux Pas blog. Hell, he might have already read it (ok, so maybe I'm not a realist ALL the time)!
I say "I love you" and "I'm sorry" with food...I bet he does too. We both like a good party. He's a Cancer, I'm a Scorpio, we're a match made in astrological heaven. He can't stand Rachel Ray or Sandra Lee, I smell what he's steppin' in. We both love peasant food, though I might have some difficulty diving into a bowl full of bull balls or pig brains, but hell...I'll try anything once. He's got that "bad boy" thing about him. You know...the type of guy you flock to and then run screaming from? He's smart, mysterious, cocky, pierced, tattooed, has done drugs, and wears leather and cowboy boots!
I just finished his Kitchen Confidential book. I loved it. If you haven't read it, you should check it out.
