A Word On Food: Anthony Bourdain

Tony with me, Charlie Trotter and Emeril

My introduction to the world of Anthony Bourdain began with the sound of hearing my mother laughing while reading a book in her favored chair. Not a minute passed before she was laughing again. I was getting ready for work and between trips to my coffee cup, I stopped and said, “Okay I give. What are you reading that has you cracking up so much?” She peered over her glasses, flicked the ash off of her cigarette and held up the book. I read the title. “Kitchen Confidential”. Being the saint she was she finished the book that evening. When I got home around midnight it was on my pillow. Soon it was me doing the laughing. 


Now it’s time to hit the ‘Listen on WLRN’ button at the top to hear the remainder of my show. ‘A Word On Food’ airs on WLRN every Saturday around 8:30 a.m. at 91.3 and also 91.5 on the radio. I want to thank so many of you who tell me in person how much you are enjoying the show!
