The Roast of Anthony Bourdain (aka When Rachel Ray and Guy Fieri Get Revenge)
Anthony Bourdain is the one man who could serve me fried escamoles slathered in hot sauce and I wouldn’t blink an eye. Rather, I would graciously take the plate of buttery, larvae caviar and thank him for guessing my favorite dish, giggling like a school girl while flashing a winning smile. Just kidding, I don’t giggle.
Aside from his culinary swag and dashing good looks (the latter debatable to most), Bourdain’s penchant for ruthlessly ridiculing some of TV’s most famed chefs has garnered much media attention. So it was only fitting when he accepted to headline the New York City Wine & Food Festival as the roast of the night. Hosted by Mario Batali, Bourdain endured a riotous session of being publicly lamabasted by his fellow chefs, including some of the very people he’s poked fun at for all these years.
Of course, the No Reservations star knew what was coming:
The event took place last night and Bourdain got his fair share of scorching, with chefs like Rachel Ray and Guy Fieri receiving some of the heat as well. Overall, it proved to all be in hilarious good fun. Anything for charity.
