If I'm an advocate for anything, it's to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river.

Anthony Bourdain Quotes On Restaurants

Go to table of contents

If anything is good for pounding humility into you permanently, it's the restaurant business. — Anthony Bourdain

My daughter always behaved in restaurants. And if she didn't, she's going out. I mean, one of the parents is going to take her outside. Immediately. — Anthony Bourdain

Very few restaurant workers could even dream of eating in the restaurants they work in. Many do not make a living wage. — Anthony Bourdain

I won't eat in a restaurant with filthy bathrooms. This isn't a hard call. They let you see the bathrooms.

I like telling stories, and I tell stories that interest me. It would be boring to have to go to nothing but the best restaurants. That would be a misery to me. — Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain Quotes On Adventurous

Anthony Bourdain Quotes On People

Go to table of contents

I don't have much patience for people who are self-conscious about the act of eating, and it irritates me when someone denies themselves the pleasure of a bloody hunk of steak or a pungent French cheese because of some outdated nonsense about what's appropriate or attractive. — Anthony Bourdain

I believe - to the best of my recollection, anyway - that I soon made the classic error of moving from margaritas to actual shots of straight tequila. It does make it easier to meet new people. — Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain Quotes On Chefs

Go to table of contents

What you're going to be eating in the next year is decided by chefs. If the consensus is that pot-bellies are in next season, that's what's on your plate. And I think that's a good thing, because we know, obviously, about food. — Anthony Bourdain

I hated the Naked Chef. Fine, yes, he did good things for school food or whatever, but, you know, I don't want my chefs to be cute and adorable. — Anthony Bourdain

I like the fact that Melbourne always seems to support their chefs and promote them in ways I find really admirable. — Anthony Bourdain

We now have a generation of people who in many cases feel that if they become chefs, they'll get a TV show.

Every chef I know, their cholesterol is through the roof. And mine's not so great. — Anthony Bourdain

I was a journeyman chef of middling abilities. Whatever authority I have as a commenter on this world comes from the sheer weight of 28 years in the business. I kicked around for 28 years and came out the other end alive and able to form a sentence. — Anthony Bourdain

The celebrity-chef thing, even at its worst, its most annoying, its silliest, its goofiest, its most egregious and cynical, has been a good thing. — Anthony Bourdain

I'm a decent cook; I'm a decent chef. None of my friends would ever have hired me at any point in my career. Period. — Anthony Bourdain

Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind. — Anthony Bourdain

Maybe that’s enlightenment enough: to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom...is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go. -Anthony Bourdain — Anthony Bourdain

Food is everything we are. It's an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It's inseparable from those from the get-go. — Anthony Bourdain

Few things are more beautiful to me than a bunch of thuggish, heavily tattooed line cooks moving around each other like ballerinas on a busy Saturday night. Seeing two guys who'd just as soon cut each other's throats in their off hours moving in unison with grace and ease can be as uplifting as any chemical stimulant or organized religion. — Anthony Bourdain

Garlic is divine. Few food items can taste so many distinct ways, handled correctly. Misuse of garlic is a crime...Please, treat your garlic with respect...Avoid at all costs that vile spew you see rotting in oil in screwtop jars. Too lazy to peel fresh? You don't deserve to eat garlic. — Anthony Bourdain

Luck is not a business model. — Anthony Bourdain

But I do think the idea that basic cooking skills are a virtue, that the ability to feed yourself and a few others with proficiency should be taught to every young man and woman as a fundamental skill, should become as vital to growing up as learning to wipe one’s own ass, cross the street by oneself, or be trusted with money. — Anthony Bourdain

Understand, when you eat meat, that something did die. You have an obligation to value it - not just the sirloin but also all those wonderful tough little bits. — Anthony Bourdain

Do you really want to make risotto to order when you have eight guests sitting there? No. It won't work. Most cookbooks won't tell you that. They will say make it and it will come out perfectly. They should tell you you're probably going to screw it up the first 10 times you make it. — Anthony Bourdain

I always entertain the notion that I'm wrong, or that I'll have to revise my opinion. Most of the time that feels good; sometimes it really hurts and is embarrassing. — Anthony Bourdain

I've been very careful about what I say yes to and what I say no to.

Will it make me hate myself? I think about all of those things. — Anthony Bourdain

Theres no hope, none, of ever talking about it without pissing somebody, if not everybody, off...By the end of this hour I will be seen by many as a terrorist sympathizer, a Zionist tool. A self-hating Jew, an apologist for American imperialism, an orientalist, socialist, fascist, CIA agent, and worse. — Anthony Bourdain

Everything important I learned, I learned as a dishwasher. — Anthony Bourdain

PETA doesn't want stressed animals to be cruelly crowded into sheds, ankle-deep in their own crap, because they don't want any animals to die ever and basically think chickens should, in time, gain the right to vote.

My French definitely improves the more I drink, as I worry less and less about absolutely perfect grammar. I do speak and understand the language, just not particularly well. — Anthony Bourdain

If you've ever hauled a 28-pound two-year-old around New York, you'll find that men fold at the knees a lot quicker than women. — Anthony Bourdain

In America, there might be better gastronomic destinations than New Orleans, but there is no place more uniquely wonderful. — Anthony Bourdain

I'm really good at sleeping on planes. I mean, I smell jet fuel and I'm out; I'm asleep for takeoff. — Anthony Bourdain

I often look ridiculous in Japan. There's really no way to eat in Japan, particularly kaiseki in a traditional ryokan, without offending the Japanese horribly. Every gesture, every movement is just so atrociously wrong, and the more I try, the more hilarious it is. — Anthony Bourdain

I'm definitely looking forward to the day when I stop working - if I ever stop working. I like the idea of keeling over in my tomato vines in Sardinia or northern Italy. — Anthony Bourdain

The notion that before you even set out to go to Thailand, you say, 'I'm not interested,' or you're unwilling to try things that people take so personally and are so proud of and so generous with, I don't understand that, and I think it's rude.

I do my very best to avoid shark fin. — Anthony Bourdain
