Bourdain's Asian adventures (India -two great episodes - and Korea) were so good it took me several minutes to come back to reality. These segments stayed with me for days. I craved Indian and Korean food for weeks. They mix culture and food culture into the best shows I've seen yet.
A big surprise was the Northwest segment. I clicked it thinking "The Northwest . . . I should just get this out of the way." I was so impressed that I want to move to Portland! This was such a great treat. The segment on Beirut brought tears to my eyes. This series facilitated the realization that food is so much more than the kitchy shows you watch about which olive oil to use or what the "cuisine" of Tuscany is like. It demonstrates how fundamental food is to our lives, our family, and who we are as a culture.
No Reservations Collection 2 is even better than the first season - which was very good. I recommend it enthusiastically. It makes me hungry for travel and food, and touched my heart with every segment!
Disc 2 contains 2 episodes on India, which are Rajasthan and Kolkata/Bombay. Things start picking up here. Tony has dinner with a rich guy who lives in a mansion. Then come episodes on Indonesia, Korea, and Ireland. See Tony eat pancakes for breakfast from a boat at the hotel in Indonesia. Does Tony really want to live here now? Watch Nari, his Korean coworker, drag him all around Korea for some crazy fun. She is adorable! You get to see how kimchi is made. Then see Tony drink a pint of Guiness in Ireland and get a tour of Northern Ireland on both the Protestant and Catholic sides. Tony goes to Cork and watches the locals play a street bowling game.
Disc 3 contains Ghana, Nambia, Lebanon and Pacific Northwest. I will watch these again before reviewing as I haven't seen them in a while. I watched the episode on Ghana last night. Tony trys some local barracuda and other local fish.

Quite vulgar. Can't show it to my students in a school culinary setting. I don't feel crude language is necessary to get ones point across.Published on March 12, 2014 by William P. Luke
