Bourdain at the Commonwealth Club of California

Did anyone hear him last night on XM Public Radio? I am sure it was broadcast elsewhere but that is where i caught it. Funny as always and he vindicated my feelings on the wretchedness of Truffle Oil (he may make this point often, not sure).

It is always nice to hear someone who is branded a jerk because of his strongly held opinions, especially when what seems to be really driving them is commitment to exacting sensualism. Listening to him speak, Bourdain sounds principled and reasonable and the his critics either compromised or lazy. The more I learn about him, the more impressed I am. Meaning: I'd get hammered and eat wombat jowl with him.
