Anthony Bourdain brings “The Hunger” to Columbus

Posted by cmh gourmand on July 31, 2016

Does this guy look familiar to you?

Anthony Bourdain

I wish I could say this photo was taken at my house but in all my travels and shrinking social circles, I have never met Anthony Bourdain. The photo and the information below, were sent to me as part of a press release for his live show – The Hunger.

Internationally renowned best-selling author, television host and multiple Emmy-award-winner Anthony Bourdain is roaming the country for The Hunger, an 11-city North American tour launching October 25 in New York. Bourdain’s first cookbook in 10 years, APPETITES (published by Ecco), also hits shelves October 25. The Hunger serves audiences an all new live show featuring an unyielding, brutally honest monologue reflecting on diverse culture, street cuisine and his travels to lesser-known locations around the world, followed by an open Q&A session. Currently filming the hit CNN original series Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown (season seven premiered Sunday, April 24; 9pm ET/PT), Bourdain will bring audiences a menu loaded with lots of laughs, serious discussions and unapologetic irreverence.

For more information including tour dates and tickets, visit www.AnthonyBourdainOnTour.com, because his show is coming Saturday, October 29, 2016 to Palace Theatre to Columbus!

Keep reading there is more….and a big incentive to keep reading. One of the first books I read that got me excited about food was Kitchen Confidential. As “food TV” and the celebrity chef craze grew I was never able to drink the Kool-Aid for it, with a few exceptions (mainly Michael Symon), the best example being Anthony Bourdain. While I can’t say his hard-drinking, chain smoking, New York style bravado appeals much to my personality style, I always enjoyed his views on food and straight forward approach to everything without any pretensions. He definitely raised himself to a high level of respect in my view when he started the show Parts Unknown. His blend of love for food and how it intertwines with local culture and history strikes a chord with me because it reminds me of how I prefer to travel and explore the world. So while I do not normally get giddy about a show coming to town, I am stoked that he is coming to Columbus as one of his eleven stops on this tour.

So here is your chance to get really excited…..

Stay tuned to future posts because sometime before the show I will have a ticket giveaway for two tickets for the show. Whether you win the tickets or buy your own I hope to see you there, this is well worth one of our rare babysitter covered nights out on the town.

In the meantime, since there is a Q & A segment during the show, how about sharing a question you would ask him if given the chance.
