Anthony Bourdain, the internationally renowned chef, author and television host, is visiting the Wharton Center as part of his Guts & Glory Tour. He's sharing candid, often hysterical insights about his life's work and travels, including an open question and answer session with the audience.
Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York's famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of bestselling titles Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw -- both hilariously blunt and sometimes shocking portraits of life in restaurant kitchens. His latest project Get JIRO!, a culinary-themed graphic novel, was released on July 3 and quickly reached the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. His 2001 travel journal A Cook's Tour was also a bestseller in the US and UK.
In addition to hosting Travel Channel's Emmy Award-winning No Reservations and The Layover, Bourdain will serve as host for two new television shows premiering in 2013: The Taste, a cooking competition series for ABC, and a docu-series for CNN, expanding the network's coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.
