“The bad boy of cuisine” visits campus

Anthony Bourdain, the host of the popular Travel Channel series, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, recently visited the campus and shared his experiences traveling the globe and sampling the world's culture. He described his adventures and misadventures on his voyages, during which he sampled the still-beating heart of a live cobra, dined with gangsters in Russia, and returned to his roots in the tiny fishing village of La Teste, France, where he first ate an oyster as a child. After his lecture Bourdain sampled some of our local delicacies from area restaurants.
