Just three days prior to the premier episode of his new program, on Thursday evening Anthony Bourdain joined "Piers Morgan Live" with a preview of his show, and some insight into his various decisions, both career and culinary.
"I'm having fun," said the host of the upcoming "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown," when asked why he often puts himself in danger traveling worldwide. "This is a great adventure for me and maybe it's a little foolhardy at times, but I'm working with some really talented people. I like to make things and tell stories and in a place like the Congo, as difficult as it is and dangerous at times, I know I'm doing the best work of my life and I'm making something that I can be really proud of."
Fielding questions from a live studio audience, the globally recognized chef, and multiple New York Times bestselling author was asked to compare the culinary exploits of America with those from around the world:
"Honestly, at a higher level among the chef community, in France, Europe, Latin America, everyone knows that the high-end cooking in this country – the middle to high-end – is as good as anywhere," claimed Bourdain. "Increasingly, even in Paris – and this is a real sea change – talk to the whole, the new generation of hot French chefs, and they're all talking about Brooklyn as a major influence."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in for the premier episode of Bourdain's new show, this Sunday at 9 on CNN.
