Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations - Heartland

Between late 2009 and mid 2010, Tony was doing a lot traveling for speaking gigs throughout America's heartland. Each trip was basically a one-night stand between filming episodes of No Reservations. Along the way, the No Reservations crew was lucky enough to see a few things, and tonight’s Heartland episode is a culmination of what they saw.

Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations on the Travel Channel
It would be easy, if you are from a foodie town like NYC or San Francisco, to look at the vast open space between the costs with a patronizing attitude. But, the food across America's heartland is equally good…so good it may even surprise a few people from the jaded foodie confines of the coasts. What you will find as you set out across America's heartland is the preeminent authority on Charcuterie in Michigan, who takes wild game meats and creates incredibly tasty dishes using pre-refrigeration techniques. You will also find a classic Japanese sushi chef in Ohio, who prepares refined dishes from rare ingredients like Japanese Horse Mackerel and tuna collar.

It should come as no surprise there are chefs across America who are crazy enough to do something different and innovative. If you aren't already venturing into your backyard to find some of these little known gems, you definitely will be after seeing tonight’s episode “Heartland.”

Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations airs Monday nights at 10/9c on the Travel Channel.
