Just saw this on the school website- Anthony Bourdain (No Reservations, travel channel, etc) will be at SUNY Stony Brook on Oct. 11 from 12.30-2pm. Admission is free to students and the community. There will be cooking demos and a Q&A session. Go to www.stonybrook.edu for directions to campus and the such. (Exit 62 off the LIE)

Erin- I bet it will be an E ticket! I hope you'll tell us all about him and the presentation.

I thought he was a hoot when I read Restaurant Confidential. I thought he was a truly awesome human being when I saw the broadcast of his time in Lebannon under fire.

Erin, please please go and then tell us all about it. Take note, take photos, be our eyes and ears.

His books are excellent, and even better when you listen to him reading them himself.

Well, from personal experience I can now attest that Mr. Bourdain's cassoulet is very good, although a little salty for my tastes. But with slab bacon and sausage, that's a possibility! His description of cultural food (most particularly, the foods that countries are known for) was dead on, "anyone can grill a steak or steam a lobster, that's why rich people never become good cooks, they don't have to experiment." They gave out the recipe for the cassoulet, if anyone would like me to post it, just give a holler. I have a couple of pics, but the lighting was really dark, I might have to lighten them up a bit.

PS- no one on the Food Network is safe from his very frank assessment! Wink

I have to absolutely agree that "peasant" food is where the soul of a culture resides and what's worth having. It's authentic. It's what's rooted in the indigenous. It's imaginative. It feeds the soul and the body.

Pass me the ratatouille and the empanadas and the udon and the tortiƩre and a bib and a fork! YUM!

Couldn't agree with you more Rainey! it's the slow cooke stews from cheap meats and things of that nature that truly satisfy1

Would love to see his cassoulet recipe Woodstocker--could you post it in the Recipe Box section??

Did Erin make it????

The cassoulet recipe is going in the Recipe Box. I'm not sure if Erin made it or not, I seem to remember her saying something about a trip to Seattle. Confused
