Celebrity chef, author and TV host Anthony Bourdain is sorta interesting, but then gets sorta boring — Hunter S. Thompson-lite.
Everyone’s gaga that he got thespian Bill Murray to sit down for lunch in front of the cameras in a show broadcast last week (I didn’t see it). The promo below has enough teasers.
But what’s really got the foodies going is that Bourdain is launching a setellite radio show Sirius XM’s Martha Stewart Living Radio, with one of the stated goals to see how uncomfortable he can make co-host and chef friend Eric Ripert, all while expanding America’s notion of food porn.
"We’re going to be doing a segment that we call food porn," he said in a telephone interview, referring to the excessively sumptuous and sometimes sexualized words and photography often used in food media.
"We’re going to challenge each other to describe in as purple a language as possible some food we’ve had. I’m trying to see whether we can expand the food porn genre into radio. And I think we can do it."
