About Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain was born in New York City. He is part French on his dad’s side to the degree that his grandfather moved to the states from France and some of us ladies agree that he is part hot. He attended The Englewood School for Boys in New Jersey, Vassar College (for two years) and is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America. He began his career in the food industry over twenty years ago as a dishwasher, gradually working his way up through preparation, to line cook, to sous chef, and chef. He is the executive chef of Manhattan’s Brasserie Les Halles, which means, in his words, that he gets to “swan around the kitchen, taking credit for others’ work.”
