Who in the world could find fault with a guy like Emeril Lagasse or Bobby Flay? They seem to be good guys. Bourdain trashes both, particularly Lagasse. Outrageous.

Bourdain apologized for trashing Emeril after he met him. As for Flay, I know someone who worked in one of his restaurants. She doesn't have much good to say. That friendly TV personality is an act.

You may be right about this. I have no knowledge whatsoever about Flay. But keep in mind that the restaurant business is a pretty tough business, so maybe Flay has to be a little hard-nosed to be successful. I don't know. He does come across as a likable person on TV. So it may in fact be an act.

I know people who have met Emeril in person. He’s a superb host and gentleman.

As for Flay, he was the owner of a restaurant. Being a boss in that environment isn’t a popularity contest.
