Most cooks I know would give up professional cooking to be able to travel all over the world and hang out in cool places, then eat a lot of Pork products washed down with many cold drinks. Yes, we all want Anthony Bourdain's job! Imagine being paid to travel around the world and eat. Tony started out washing dishes and then cooking on the East coast, he ended up in New York city as the chef of a French Brasserie. Next came writing a book about true behind the scenes life in the kitchen, "Kitchen Confidential" it became a international best seller and if you ever worked professionally in a kitchen then you will relate to most of his experiences. Next came "A cook's tour" TV show followed up by "No Reservations" on the cable travel channel in the United States. I always watch it to see what kind of trouble he gets into and to see and get ideas on the amazing food he encounters.
