This podcast is one year old, but it features Anthony in his glory as he talks about his book, Nasty Bits. Considering the number of cooking shows in prime time this spring (3!), Anthony's experiences are worth repeating. Click here for an introduction to Bourdain's world.
His answer to the question, "How do you stay so slim?" is priceless -
"Cigarettes, neurotic personality, fidgeting. An unhealthy lifestyle."
Anthony also reveals that he loves a good pastrami sandwich and great sushi.
If you can't get enough of Bourdain, who is almost as ubiquitous as Rachael Ray, here is a video interview with Andrew Zimmern in St. Paul Magazine, 2007.
If you're as obsessed with watching food competitions as I am, there is an embarrassment of riches this season:
The Next Food Network Star on the Food Network on Sunday
Hell's Kitchen on Fox on Monday
Top Chef3: Miami on Bravo on Wednesday
Can life get any better for a t.v. junkie? I think not.
