Anthony Bourdain’s Favorite Food
Recently foodies around the world lost a great one – Anthony Bourdain. He was the favorite food show host and guide to millions of people around the world and not just because he could grasp effortlessly the food he was tasting. In order to produce his shows Bourdain put his life on the line by visiting countries that count as no-go destinations for westerners. He had received training from security experts before visiting places such as Iraqi Kurdistan and The Democratic Republic of Congo. Why? For the pleasure of the millions of viewers who are eager to see what people around the world make and call food. The goal to deliver exceptional programming and his personal woes resulted in pressure amounting to levels that Anthony could no longer bear. He succumbed at his own choosing on June 8, 2018. Here we will pay a tribute to Anthony Bourdain by scouring the net for his favourite foods.
Some of Bourdain’s Favorite Dishes
Anthony Bourdain has stated his love for pork on numerous occasions and Sisig is one such specialty. This is a Filipino dish made of swine liver and parts of the animal’s head. The meet is fried with onions, eggs, pork rinds, spices and sauces. Sisig is something between a skillet and street food that can be slipped inside a hamburger bun.
Many times Bourdain has dropped this as one of his favorite dishes. He could have Spaghetti Pomodoro anywhere in the world. Is it the pomodoro, that is, the tomato, that is simmered into sauce and pour over the spaghetti or is it the spaghetti that gets a tinge of the sauce, that got Anthony relishing on this dish? At any event, this is simple and something anyone could make at home.
Char Kway Teow
This is a famous dish in Singapore that is made of fried rice, noodles, vegetables and sauce. This and the Mexican tacos de lengua (beef-tongue taco) are listed too as Anthony’s favorite dishes.
You’d be surprised how little known this dish is outside Koreatown in Any-State, US. The Army Stew is food for the poor, or for the starving artist or college student living out. It’s made of ramen, chopped hot dog, spam, beans, kimchi and Korean spices. It sounds like a mish-mash of things that shouldn’t be put together in a roll on the fork, but it is what it is, and Anthony finds Budae Jijgae delicious.
No Way in the World
To close up, we are sharing one thing Anthony Bourdain never ate – airplane food. His argument was that airplane food never made anyone feel good. When he boards a plane he orders wine and starves out the flight until he touches down to his destination. There onwards, it is all the new food he could and could not eat galore.
Last but Not Least
Many foodies know that there are cooking simulations online, as well as online slots featuring various foods. One of these puts you in the role of a ninja chef who prepares sushi at the Ninja Chef Slot.
