Bourdain bringing "Guts & Glory" to Oklahoma City; Ludivine to Host Reception
Anthony Bourdain will bring his Guts & Glory tour to Oklahoma this fall with new, uncensored material. The internationally renowned chef, author, and television host will visit the Rose State College Performing Arts Theatre for one night only, Sunday, November 11 at 7 p.m. Bourdain will spend the evening sharing candid, often hysterical insights about his life’s work and travels, including an open question and answer session with the audience.
Bourdain will be hosted by chefs Jonathon Stranger and Russ Johnson at Ludivine after the show. The reception extends an important run of events for Ludivine, including Outstanding in the Field on Oct. 21 plus their second birthday party also in October.
Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of “Kitchen Confidential,” “Medium Raw,” and “A Cook’s Tour.” His latest project “Get JIRO!,” a culinary-themed graphic novel, was released on July 3. A contributor to Food Arts magazine, Bourdain’s work has also appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Times of London, Bon Appetit, Gourmet, and many other publications. He has been profiled by CBS Sunday Morning and Nightline, and has been a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman, Morning Joe, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Daily Show, Charlie Rose, The Colbert Report, and Real Time with Bill Maher.
His Emmy Award-winning “No Reservations” on Travel Channel is in its final season, but Bourdain will serve as host for two new television shows premiering in 2013: “The Taste,” a cooking competition series for ABC, plus a documentary series for CNN, expanding the network’s coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.
