Bourdain-loving Brooklynites and fans in New York's other four boroughs, listen up! Your favorite no-B.S. chef, author and TV host is planning a live show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music this November. Titled The Hunger, the performance will feature Bourdain's no-holds-barred take on... well, it could be anything frankly. The event is tied to the October release of his new cookbook Appetites.
Never one to shy away from waxing poetic about everyting from greasy, fried street food to proper sushi technique, it's no doubt that followers of his writings and various travel series will be in for a treat. Tickets go on sale July 28th (though you can pre-order today with the code BOURDAIN) and start at a relatively steep $78, but the show will be followed by a Q&A so maybe the price is worth it to ask what he really thinks of Guy Fieri. Appetites will be Bourdain's first cookbook in a decade and will feature a more biographical selection of dishes. In Bourdain's own words, the work is the result of his own evolution, having "morphed into a psychotic, anally retentive, bad-tempered Ina Garten." When you put it that way, how can we NOT check it out?
