Product Description

The #1 food writer and television presenter in the world, Anthony Bourdain reinvented the food travel genre. In his groundbreaking first series, that originally aired on the Food Network, Bourdain travels around the world indulging his taste for local cuisine and eccentric characters. Join Tony as he feasts on sushi in Tokyo, enjoys authentic Mexican cuisine, and traverses the Australian Outback on a memorable food journey. You never know what he ll say, who he ll meet, or what they ll have for dinner.

Review

He's raw, unflinchingly honest and hopelessly candid... it's impossible to dislike Anthony Bourdain. - --The Los Angeles Times

Customer Reviews

Other than these two correctable issues, it's just great to finally have this on DVD!
Patrick Trakel
I easily forget about issues like that when they are taken care of by those who made the mistake.
Budd Young
Mr. Bourdain has a wry and sardonic nature that comes across perfectly on the small screen.

A couple of things: Yes, disc six is missing an episode, but Questar is aware of the problem and has replacement discs ready to go. Simply call them at 312-266-9400 to arrange it.

Second, due to an encoding issue the episodes stretch to widescreen on widescreen monitors. Simply change your settings to force 4:3 to correct this.

Other than these two correctable issues, it's just great to finally have this on DVD!

I first stumbled upon Anthony Bourdain's writing a couple years after his magnum opus on the food service industry, Kitchen Confidential Updated Edition: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly (P.S.), was released and quickly became a fan of his very 70s punk view of what it's like to work the line and run a restaurant. When I heard that he was writing his next book, A Cook's Tour: Global Adventures in Extreme Cuisines, as well as filming a television show to back it up I was very excited and intrigued by the concept. In a nutshell, Bourdain traveled the globe stopping off in places that have either had a profound affect on him culturally (such as visiting Vietnam because of films like Apocalypse Now) or on his culinary proclivities (such as visiting the hometown of his longtime employer in Portugal or the spot of his first childhood food epiphany in France.) Along the way he does his best to completely open himself up to any available gastronomical experiences which can at times be weird, exciting, or downright disgusting (like eating the still-beating heart of a cobra or trying barbequed lizard on a stick.)

The television series, which ran for two seasons back around the turn of the millennium, was at the time some of the most interesting programming on the Food Network focusing more on real life and a wide variety of cultural experiences (as opposed to the typical shows which center on short-cut cooking and product placement.

When I ordered this item, I assumed it would be a couple DVDs with maybe a few hours of shows on them. I was wrong. The box is massive (for a DVD set) and filled with slim-case DVDs. For the price, I couldn't believe what I got. I'm a huge Anthony Bourdain fan, so I was very happy with what I got.

You can definitely see the genesis for No Reservations in these episodes (as well as familiar figures like Zamir, Michael Ruhlman, Eric Ripert, Linh, and others who show up later in No Reservations), and any fan of No Res should like Cook's Tour.

My biggest complaint ... is why is Amazon selling this set for $50, when you can go to Target and buy the same set for $20? I'm so glad I read the other review, because I was going to order this from Amazon. Instead, I ran over to Target, and bought it for the cheaper price!

If you like Tony, go get this set ... just get it somewhere cheaper!

This is a very nice set and it was even better than I had hoped for. I did get one of the sets with a bad disc but a simple phone call and a replacement was at my door in a few days.It is really great to see how Anthony started his now incredible career as not only a Chef and Television host but a very good writer. I have been a fan for a long time and I am happy to see him get the attention he deserves.His current show "Parts Unknown"on CNN shows how is only getting better at what he does.I use his shows as a way to gauge the quality of show that attempt to do what he does. I am looking forward to seeing where he takes us next.

Love everything about this. It has all all 35 episodes of the show in 6 CDs with each one focusing on a specific area of the world that Bourdain visited. My only dislike is that it doesn't offer subtitles.
