"Everybody smokes dope after work. People you would never imagine," Bourdain was quoted in today’s NYT Dining section in a story headlined "Marijuana Fuels a New Kitchen Culture."
That will lead to a great question for Bourdain, I’m sure, at this Saturday’s event at the Hippodrome with him and chef Eric Ripert of the famed Le Bernardin in New York. Bourdain, chef, author, and host of the Travel Channel’s No Reservations, will probably take some heat from his show’s Baltimore segment, too, where he ate lake trout, pit beef, and went to Mo’s Seafood.
It’s going to be fun. I bought my tickets weeks ago, but there are still some available. An $89 ticket gets you access to the talk and q&a and food sampling afterward. If you’re really flush (I’m not!), you can have a meet and greet with Bourdain and Ripert for $250.
