So, last night I was watching a bunch of reruns of No Reservations on the Travel Channel. I am a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain and absolutely love his brilliant, snarky, honest attitude. I find it quite refreshing in this day and age of dumbed down cookie cutter television programming, and I’m totally looking forward to his new show “The Layover.” I know there are some of you out there that despise the man, but whatever, I really don’t care. You should probably go run to the donut shop so you can make yourself a hamburger or something.
Anyway, I guess I missed the techniques episode, which reminded me that my cousin James still needs to learn some skills. As you may recall, James did not inherit the cooking gene from our family. I’m not too sure why the hell it didn’t happen to him, maybe it’s some sort of disability. I’m hoping that he will become a wonderful cook later on in his life, since it is mandated by the Luong family to share our culture and love of food with any future little Jamesies out there.
So, here is the No Reservations: Techniques Special that I watched last night. Hopefully my cousin and the rest of you noncookers will learn something useful and to appreciate the greatness that is Anthony Bourdain.
