About Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain was an American chef, author, and television personality. He was noted by popular sources as one of the most influential chefs in the world. Born in the United States to a Catholic father and Jewish mother, Bourdain's diverse family tree included ancestors from France, Brazil, Ukraine, Spain, Austria, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Gibraltar.

Bourdain was a 1978 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and a veteran of numerous professional kitchens, including many years spent as executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles. He first became known for his 2000 book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly. His first food and world-travel television show was A Cook's Tour, which ran for 35 episodes on the Food Network from 2002 through 2003. In 2005 he began hosting the Travel Channel's culinary and cultural adventure programs Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (2005–2012) and The Layover (2011–2013). In 2013, he switched to CNN to host Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.

Though best known for his culinary achievements and television presentations, along with several books on food and cooking and travel adventures, Bourdain's lesser-known writings include both fiction and historical nonfiction.
