The internationally renowned chef, author and television host Anthony Bourdain brings his GUTS AND GLORY tour to Dayton for one night only, Sunday, November 18 at 7 p.m. at the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center. 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. Tickets are on sale now at the Ticket Center Stage Box Office.
Bourdain, the chef at large at New York's famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of the bestselling Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw - both hilariously blunt and sometimes shocking portraits of life in restaurant kitchens. His latest project Get JIRO!, a culinary graphic novel, was released on July 3 and has reached the #1 spot on The New York Times bestseller list. His 2001 travel journal A Cook's Tour was also a bestseller in the US and UK.
A contributing authority for Food Arts Magazine, his work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Times of London, Bon Appetit, Gourmet and many other publications. He has also been profiled by "CBS Sunday Morning" and "Nightline" and has appeared 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."
In addition to hosting Travel Channel's Emmy Award®-winning "No Reservations" and "The Layover", Bourdain will serve as host for two new television shows premiering in 2013: "The Taste," a cooking competition series for ABC, and a docu-series for CNN, expanding the network's coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.
