Anthony Bourdain did Reddit “Ask Me Anything”…

lizlemon:

On loving southern food and loathing Paula Deen: ”The South is where the greatest American traditional food comes from. It’s the cradle of American gastronomy. I reject the notion that what Paula was selling is traditional Southern food. Cheeseburger on a Krispie Kreme bun? Nobody’s Grandma I ever heard of EVER made that shit.”

To yet another question asking him, “The Taste? Seriously? Ten years ago you would have been mocking the crap out of yourself”:“This bus makes many stops. I have no expectation that you will like all of them.”

Does he feel like a sell-out for doing The Taste?: “‘Sell out’? Like Scripps (Food Net owners and owners of Travel) are some kind of an indie label? I sold out the first time I ever agreed to work a brunch shift. The question for me is always — was it fun? Answer. Yes.”

Relevant quote: “I sold out the first time I ever agreed to work a brunch shift.”

I stand by my earlier position on brunch.

(Except that I love getting breakfast at Schulte and Herr and I will forever and ever and if someone wants to call it “brunch,” well, fine.)

    I love Anthony Bourdain, and how unapologetically no-bullshit he is about life.
