“Do we really want to travel in hermetically sealed popemobiles through the rural provinces of France, Mexico and the Far East, eating only in Hard Rock Cafes and McDonalds?  Or do we want to eat without fear, tearing into the local stew, the humble taqueria’s mystery meat, the sincerely offered gift of a lightly grilled fish head? I know what I want. I want it all. I want to try everything once.” — Anthony Bourdain.

3 Haikus in honor of Anthony Bourdain, chef, traveler, author, advocate for globally-responsible food. Thank you Anthony. – Douglas

Anthony Bourdain


first a dishy slave
your novels; if chefs are gods
how do they behave?

cuisine confidant
appetites enticed to bite
try it at least once!

foods and parts unknown
we’re together when we eat
less the fear we own
