Well-known for their work on television as authors and in the kitchen, Bourdain and Ripert dish about what really goes on behind the kitchen doors. Their conflicting viewpoints are sure to result in a night of amusing observations about what goes into being a chef and operating some of the best restaurants in the world.
A chef, author and internationally-known TV host of Travel Channel’s “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” and “The Layover,” Bourdain as familiar with the stage as he is with a cutting board. Foodies in the Big Apple know him as the chef-at-large at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles. His writing credits include the best-selling titles “Kitchen Confidential” and “Medium Raw.” Both books offer a hilariously blunt and sometimes shocking insight to life in restaurants. “Get Jiro!” a culinary-themed graphic novel, is his most recent project. The book was released in July 2012 and reached No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list. His 2001 book, “A Cook’s Tour,” was also a bestseller in the United States and the United Kingdom. In 2013, Bourdain will host a new series on CNN, adding to the network's coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.
Ripert is well-known as the chef of Le Bernardin in New York. Le Bernardin continues to receive universal critical acclaim for its food and service and the Zagat Guide has recognized the restaurant as the “Best Food” in New York City for the last seven consecutive years. It was ranked as one of the best restaurants in the world by S. Pellegrino’s annual list of “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.” Ripert is also an author, host of “Avec Eric” on PBS and regular guest on Bravo’s “Top Chef.” He served as guest judge (and “fan favorite”) on the TV show for the past four seasons. Ripert published his fourth book “Avec Eric: A Culinary Journey with Eric Ripert” in 2010.
