I just caught Bourdain's show when he was in Paris sampling pre-ban abinsthe, kind of amusing, but I get the impression he would begin to annoy me after awhile!

There's a neat part. When you get annoyed, like I do, switch channels or walk away. It's so cool to be an adult. I almost hate television. Except for the food network.* ;)

I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

It helps to have grown up in the NYC area, to really appreciate Anthony Bourdain's humor the way I do.

Then again, I probably began to annoy you to, after awhile. :tongue:

You got a problem with that?

He's got a pretty entertaining video podcast too. Not as intertaining as Olivia Munn, but hey, we can't have everything. :twitchsmile:

Isn't that all of them?

Well, except maybe for that ultra-serious Lebanon episode.

To get a different perspective on Mr. Bourdain, read his biography of Typhoid Mary. The dude has a heart under that crusty persona, and the clear bond he feels with poor Mary (also a cook) is quite moving.
The basic tools of the absintheur are essentially a spoon, glass, sugar cube, chilled water, and absinthe. None of the other objects are actually necessary to prepare the drink, but they are imperative for instigating a type of visual hypnosis and bringing richness to the ceremony.

A little bit of sunshine for those mourning the sans-absinthe NO episode . . . they just didn't broadcast that part of the visit. A reputable young man whom I met whist visiting NO chuckled that he and Tony attended a BBQ during which absinthe was consumed in the excess. Rest assured dear fans, Mr. Bourdain has the big and the easy dialed in.

Am I the only one on this forum who didn't know about/recognize Peter Schaf? Is he a member?
Shabba, those little winking smiles can be sooo informative . . . thanks.

Bourdain in Paris with pierreverte

I wish I could talk to people in a bar and ask" Is it hard to find Pre-ban absinthe?" and they answer "well I just happen to have a couple" with a sinister smile.

Bourdain always seems to be slightly drunk in every episode (in my opinion).....

Peter took me to the bar in the episode as well. Take H.R. Giger, throw in some heavy metal, and a fantastic selection of corsican wild game sausages (and absinthe- wonderful pairing, btw), and you have Cantada II. Fun night. If you're in Paris, I highly recommend you look Peter up, and beg an evening of him. He's a wonderful host and guide.
