With candid, often hysterical stories about their life’s work and travels, Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern will provide frank insights into the international food scene in an open question and answer session with the audience. They’ll also muse on the place of food in our community and around the globe.
In addition to hosting the Travel Channel’s Emmy Award-winning “No Reservations” and “The Layover,” Anthony Bourdain will serve as host for two new television shows premiering in 2013: “The Taste,” a cooking competition series for ABC, and a docu-series for CNN, expanding the network’s coverage of travel, culture and cuisine. Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of the bestselling titles “Kitchen Confidential” and “Medium Raw,” both hilariously blunt and sometimes shocking portraits of life in restaurant kitchens. His latest project “Get JIRO!,” a culinary-themed graphic novel, was released in July 2012 and quickly reached the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. His 2001 travel journal “A Cook’s Tour” was also a bestseller in the U.S. and U.K.
Andrew Zimmern, a James Beard Award-winning TV personality, chef, food writer and teacher, lives in Minneapolis and writes for publications including Minneapolis-St. Paul Magazine and Delta Sky Magazine. As the creator, host and co-executive producer of the Travel Channel’s hit series, “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern,” “Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World,” and his new series, “Bizarre Foods America,” he travels the globe, exploring food in its own terroir and eating things that would turn many weaker stomachs. From world class restaurants to street carts and jungle markets, he discovers and shares the authentic experience to help others examine lives and make better choices.
