Rebel, Über-cool Cook Anthony Bourdain Meets Confucius?
Experiencing Anthony Bourdain is like encountering some über-human hybrid consisting of James Dean and Martha Stewart.
He is one of the most fascinating pop culture characters I discovered in 2007. And I enjoy his blog as well. He uses culinary 'tropes' to tackle real-life issues and that skill alone is reason enough to enjoy him.
The best sentence I read today comes from his blog:
"It's a point of view popular among internet nerds and cubicle geeks who've never done a minute's physical labor in their lives, the same people who take photographs of every course at their favorite restaurants, convinced that it's Jean Georges himself in there, personally boning out their squab."
