I have a feeling tough guy/chef Anthony Bourdain dictates into a digital recorder, then has some lackey at the Travel Channel to type them up. His blog posts read like a stroll through the Umbrian market in his head, which is to say, pretty random:
My one and half year old baby daughter loves olives. And caper berries. And salty parmigiano reggiano cheese. Her love of rabbits (as food) is already well established. But I discovered today that she adores polenta--served with the hot, rendered fat of roasted game birds. And that she goes absolutely bat shit over risotto made with wild nettles. And when her Mom dips a finger in the local red wine, she greatly prefers it to juice. This makes me very proud.Anthony Bourdain Blog | Goodbye To All That [travelchannel.com via dt reader dt, sent outside of work hours, naturally]
link update: David had some problems with the link when he sent it to me, and a couple of readers have mentioned it, too. If the link above doesn't work for you, try this Google search result page instead [google.com]
update: I still had this open in my browser, so I skimmed through the 200+ comments on Bourdain's post. HE IS THE LEADER OF A CRAZY, OVEREXPRESSIVE FOODIE TRAVEL CULT!
