Coming Soon to the Moore!
I should really call this "Recently Gone from the Moore," since I'm still having trouble in the Enthusiasm-for-Belltown department. I have yet to figure out what these celebrity chefs do when they're in front of audiences. I'm pretty sure they don't cook. In Bourdain's case, he probably talks about being a drug addict. There's always a lot of mileage in that. Personally, I like him, because he's a jerk and he's not ashamed of it. On TV, he's always best when he's put in an uncomfortable situation or made to eat gross food. On the plane back to Seattle, I watched an episode of No Reservations where he went to Australia and hung out with all of his chef friends. Boring! However, when he went to Iceland, was ridiculed by bodybuilders and given fermented shark and jellied sheep's brains, now that was entertaining! So does he just tell stories or does he do a little tap dancing? Does anybody know what happens at these functions?
