A New Season of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations Begins Monday

One of my favorite television shows, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, returns to the Travel Channel for a brand new season on Monday, July 7th. If you haven’t been following Tony’s adventures traveling around the world then you’ve missed seeing him visiting exotic locations while eating food most of us couldn’t even imagine existed.

Even though Bourdain has since been out eaten in the gross food department by fellow Travel Channel foodie Andrew Zimmern (of Bizzare Foods with Andrew Zimmern), No Reservations still shines by blending Bourdain’s unique point of view with his never say no attitude to food, liquor and adventure. During our recent trip out west, Aly and I were inspired by Bourdain to try some food a little outside of our comfort level.

Anthony Bourdain in the KitchenSince I became a diehard Bourdanian and slowly started learning more about the wonders of food, I have been dying to try roasted bone marrow, a dish he raves about. And so on the final night of our trip to California, we found ourselves walking past Bistro Jeanty, a great French restaurant in Napa Valley, that just happened to have the rich appetizer on their specials list. I figured if was sign we had to eat there and so we did. The roasted bone marrow was exquisite and I followed it up by ordering the cassoulet, a Bourdain specialty, as my entrée. The meal was excellent and the only thing better would have been if we had had the No Reservations camera crew circling the table as we ate.
