Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (PRWEB) August 10, 2012
Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of bestselling titles Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw – both hilariously blunt and sometimes shocking portraits of life in restaurant kitchens. His latest project Get JIRO!, a culinary-themed graphic novel, was released on July 3 and has already reached the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. His 2001 travel journal A Cook’s Tour was also a bestseller in the US and UK.
A contributing authority for Food Arts magazine, Bourdain’s work has also appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Times of London, Bon Appetit, Gourmet, and many other publications. He has been profiled by CBS Sunday Morning and Nightline, and has been a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman, Morning Joe, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Daily Show, Charlie Rose, The Colbert Report, and Real Time with Bill Maher.
In addition to hosting Travel Channel’s Emmy Award-winning No Reservations and The Layover, Bourdain will serve as host for two new television shows premiering in 2013: The Taste, a cooking competition series for ABC, and a docu-series for CNN, expanding the network’s coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.
