Anthony Bourdain did Reddit “Ask Me Anything”…
On loving southern food and loathing Paula Deen: ”The South is where the greatest American traditional food comes from. It’s the cradle of American gastronomy. I reject the notion that what Paula was selling is traditional Southern food. Cheeseburger on a Krispie Kreme bun? Nobody’s Grandma I ever heard of EVER made that shit.”
To yet another question asking him, “The Taste? Seriously? Ten years ago you would have been mocking the crap out of yourself”:“This bus makes many stops. I have no expectation that you will like all of them.”
Does he feel like a sell-out for doing The Taste?: “‘Sell out’? Like Scripps (Food Net owners and owners of Travel) are some kind of an indie label? I sold out the first time I ever agreed to work a brunch shift. The question for me is always — was it fun? Answer. Yes.”
