I’ve always gotten a creepy feeling that Bordain trolls the back alleys of Thailand looking for “ladyboys” when the cameras are off.

well, I love when these extremely tall people like bourdain complains about the heavier set people who don't have his height.....when you're taller you can take in tons more calories....like John Tesh, neither of these guys have ever had to worry about an extra pound in their lives...

having said that, he's right about Deen and Ray....both corporate suck ups who are Rats btw ......

It's pretty much the same in every restaurant...

Years ago, I asked a chef why mashed potatoes always tasted so much better in a restaurant. He told me what he said chwefs have known for decades..in a restaurant, it's "lots of cream, butter, salt and pepper held together with a little potato.."

Bourdain has turned the “Travel” channel into the non-travel channel. Years back I remember subscribing to cable just so I could get the Travel channel. Now it’s all about weird food and I never watch.

Paula Deen has stated many times that her recipes aren’t for everyday eating. They are recipes that are used for when you want to make something really tasty and decadent. Bourdain is one of those “chef type people” who like to criticize non-chefs (I personally think he is very impressed with himself and his title). Just a thought.

Also true, but most people don’t eat out at such restaurants every night. Day by day you have to eat healthier.

I doubt it's really her food that bothers him. He seems to hate what he considers “fake” Chefs like Rachel Ray and Paula Deen, who portray everything in the culinary word as all sunshine and lollipops. When the real culinary world, according to him, is dirty, cutthroat, underhanded and little better than Los Vegas under the mafia. He use to trash Emeril for the same reason, buy after he met him, he claimed he'd change his mind and said that Emeril is the real deal off camera. Now Bourdain calls him a lovable fuzzy little amok.

I’ve watched dozens of Bourdains’ shows. He regularly indulges in artery cloggers, eg a deepfried Twinkie. As long as we’re being critical Anthony how about cleaning up your language. The “Bleeper” works overtime on your show.

I agree...I’ve been on a low salt diet for years, often no salt, and have learned to cook with herbs and spices. When I eat out, and first taste a dish, the SALT just explodes un my taste buds..it’s overwhelming..

It is funny I have never heard of this Anthony Bourdain creep but I do know who Paula Deen and Rachael Ray are. I think that he can’t cook and that is his problem. He probably would not know what to do with a few slices of bacon, a couple of eggs and two slices of bread!

He’s got shows coming out of his ass.
Sometimes it looks like he gets more air-time than the other cooks combined, and he gets to travel the world trying the best stuff. Somehow, sitting on a soundstage doesn’t seem to be the better gig.

my wife is a total food network junkie and bourdain is a typical elitist nyc yankee, we don’t care for his type in flyover country. I don’t care that Paula Dean is a lib, I feel I would have more fun with her than bourdain does with his precious illegal aliens that he “feels” so much for.

“Paula Deen suffers from what dietary related disorder?”

She has diabetes. That being said, I have tried her recipes ON OCCASION. The ones that I tried were absolutely fantastic. I understand that many people need to eat healthier but my point is this: when does eating healthy become a 24/365 obsession and cookbooks containing recipes for Pound Cakes, Fried Chicken, Fudge, Cookies, Pies (etc...) become banned? Sure... a fruit cup is healthier for you and tastes good but sometimes... people just want a piece of chocolate cake. What’s so wrong with that?

Los Vegas under the mafia

Another topic, but Vegas under the mob was a fun place to visit. Nowadays under corporate rule, it's just a tacky tourist trap.

Bourdain’s take on Guy Fietti(sp) is pretty funny. Poochy from the Simpsons. And I even like that diners show.

A funny lib picking on helpless lib sheep from the food network? At least he is being honest, which is different from the usual crap one normally gets.

I've watched both Rae and Deen for years, but I doubt that I've cooked more than two or three things from their shows. Their shows are for entertainment, not a guide for eating. Bourdain admits he loves bone marrow dishes and fois gras, but I doubt he eats them every day. Same for the food shown by Rae and Deen.

Thought Bourdain buried the hatchet with Ray as well at one point.

Enjoyed his show for a while but have tired of it. Have no interest at all in who he considers to be a real chef.

I know decadent food vs. healthy food and am well aware how to eat and when I can splurge, without help from Tony, or Jamie Oliver for that matter..

Bordain went the Czechoslovaia and helped PEASANTS make sausages by hand, cook them immediately and sit around in a backyard drinking beer and eating them by hand. Most of his shows don’t involve actual chefs, just locals and local cooking.

He can be a prick, though.

The only time I really like Bourdain’s “No Reservation’s” is when he’s somewhere in Eastern Europe or the old Soviet Block countries and the hard-drinking, Russian guy (Zamir? Shamir?) is with him. That guy makes the show, drinking a couple bottles of Vodka at ever stop and always having some crazy money making scheme. They need to dump Bourdain and give that guy the show.

“Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn. To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living. Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, and an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food. The body, these waterheads imagine, is a temple that should not be polluted by animal protein. It’s healthier, they insist, though every vegetarian waiter I’ve worked with is brought down by any rumor of a cold. Oh, I’ll accommodate them, I’ll rummage around for something to feed them, for a ‘vegetarian plate’, if called on to do so. Fourteen dollars for a few slices of grilled eggplant and zucchini suits my food cost fine.” From Kitchen Confidential, p. 70.

Ever see his episode where he ate the wild things and shot serious rounds down range with Ted Nugent?

He looked like a ballerina at a cage fight.

Both of them are liberals. Let them eat each other.

BTW, what has Bourdain ever done? Chef at Brasserie Les Halles? Big deal. A half-a$$ed pseudo-French diner attached to a butcher shop.

He's nobody in the real culinary world.

Tell me how can you eat any healthier than all-natural ingredients like butter, cream, potatoes and salt? The problem is not the ingredients, but simply eating too much or snacking between meals.

Paula Deen comes right back at Bourdain in today’s Page Six in the NY Post. Bourdain also slammed Rachel Ray, Cuomo’s live in lover and Guy Fieri. To me Bourdain is kind of creepy and very smug and superior. I’d much rather have a beer with any of the above names mentioned than Bourdain. Hey, but everyone has their own preferences.

I would love to see the calorie count for each dish at a high-end restaurant. If you had an app, salad, soup, entree, and dessert with a drink, wine and coffee.

I’d much rather have a dab of REAL butter, that a glob of that fake stuff full of chemicals any day of the year.

I’m one of those short people, who watches every calorie, so only enjoy the high cal stuff once in a while.

My dad lived into his late 90’s eating BUTTER.

Bourdain is a flaming ‘I Hate America’ creep and he misses NO opportunity to slam the US.

He travels everywhere to spew hate for our culture, our government, our history, out enterprise, our society, etc.

If his mouth is moving he is bashing America. Can't watch this hateful, stupid, old hippie jerk!

“... calorie count for each dish at a high end restaurant”.

I am imagining it would be high! That being said, I am more of a simple, home cook. I have no interest in making bone marrow or fois gras... that isn’t who I am or what my family likes to eat. Bourdain (IMHO) fails to understand that some people cook more gourmet and some prefer to cook more homestyle. It isn’t one is right or wrong... it is just a difference. There’s no need to bash Deen for her unhealthy cooking when Bourdain has said that he indulged in heroin, cocaine, LSD.. in his early years and has only recently given up smoking two packs a day. Pot calling the kettle black?!!
