More Bourdain for your buck

I’ve lucked out in being able to inter­view some of the best culi­nary tal­ent in the world who have all been incred­i­bly gra­cious and inspir­ing (and nerve wrack­ing!) to speak to, but I’d never had an exclu­sive like this before.

I had the good for­tune of being the only writer in Las Vegas to get to speak with Anthony Bour­dain in antic­i­pa­tion for his and Eric Ripert’s com­ing show this Sat­ur­day, and as such, I got to write two sto­ries out of one great interview.

My Q&A with Anthony Bourdain

When I tell peo­ple what I do for a liv­ing, inevitably there’s some­one who says “That’s my dream job!”

The only per­son I’ve ever spo­ken those same words of envy about is Anthony Bour­dain. Got to speak with him about the state of culi­nary affairs in Vegas, what the deal is with his new shows, and what his daugh­ter likes (and doesn’t like) to eat.

Here’s my Q&A with him in Vegas Seven.

Anthony Bour­dain speaks at the Palms on Feb 9. I’m assum­ing this is an older photo because he’s still rock­ing that stu­pid earring.

Good vs. Evil: An Evening With Anthony Bour­dain and Eric Ripert, 8 p.m. Feb­ru­ary 9, the Pearl Con­cert The­ater at the Palms, tick­ets start at $59, 944‑3200,
