Great to know and all, but I'll stick my hand in a hive full of bees infected with leprosy before I use it to click on to Michelle Malkin's shiat site.

I always wondered how a 'famous/top chef' can smoke... doesn't it ruin your sense of taste/smell?... how can you taste test your work?

Tony would be pissed if he knew something is referring to him as a "celebrity chef".  He's always said he was a cook.  A line cook that wasn't bad at his job, wasn't stellar at his job.  He never got where he is now by cooking.

For all the people that claim Bourdain is insufferably arrogant (I mean, he kinda is, but in an endearing, older guy who's seen a lot of sh*t, "IDGAF" kind of way, to me at least), he's always been very humble about his culinary accomplishments and credentials.

One of my favorite quotes of his (loosely paraphrased): "As a 'chef', I was never interested in pushing boundaries or challenging anything. I just tried later on to recreate French classics. The times in my life I actually tried to be daring with my food...people got hurt."

This!  This site is filled with close minded leftists.  When I show them irrefutable evidence of chemtrails, they mock my beliefs.  If only they would click on my blog, then they would see THE TRUTH.

Sometimes classic is what you want.

However for the last 15+ years is you have newer chefs who cannot cook a traditional dish, but do something with it to make it their own, and it becomes nasty. Be very scared when you see on a menu "our very own twist on a classic dish".

I was served Coq A Vin with mango chutney on the top of it.

Also, if you want to add color to a pate, a handful of cilantro should not be used.  Cilantro she be used in small amounts not to disrupt the flavor.

I once knew a guy who said he'd never eat at a restaurant where the chef smoked.  I think that limits you to about eight restaurants.

not only that, they can smoke a marlboro red in 3 drags since they can only spare 1 minute off the line (and the time it takes to walk outside and back to the grill eats into that minute)

I know a ton of chefs and cooks (its the biggest industry down here).  I know of only one that does not smoke, and even he will have a occasional one-cigarette-at-the-end-of-the-night.

There is a positive to take away from this. The producers of late night talk shows should take note, GUEST HOSTS ARE BETTER THAN RE-RUNS.

Johnny Carson had guest hosts when he was on vacation. Anything is better than seeing a monologue where the host is referring to events from 2 months ago.

You have to remember that the average American IQ now is about 4. They turn on the comfort electric box and expect to see their friends every night. Comfort electric box cannot change.

So showing them 'guest hosts' is a new show and they either get mad that their favorite is gone or get mad that that new show isn't being made anymore. Etc.

You have obviously never lived in Latin America or any other country if you think the test of the world has highbrow television broadcast.

All countries do not have their own version of the BBC.

I worked in kitchens for 25 years from dishwasher to head chef and I don't smoke cigarettes.  Quite a few cooks I worked with didn't smoke, but they were a minority.  Everyone did drugs and drank like fish though.  Many times I'd come in at 5 am to open the kitchen and the night crew would still be in the lounge drinking.

I came into work once and found the chef sleeping in the freezer with a frozen beard and a burned out joint in his hand.  I got the manager and he told me it was a common occurence.

One place I worked our six person booths were notorious flop spots for the cooks/chefs. I always opened the Sunday brunch and not having at least one passed out would have been shocking.

A lot of chefs hold to that view.  But the people who actually cook the food need something to do during their down time; they smoke for the same reason that film actors smoke.

That said, I believe Boudain recently quit, at his daughter's behest.

Watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi. The best sushi chef that ever lived used to smoke, and the only thing that has changed in regards to him is that he does not smoke anymore. So you are right. It does damage your sense of taste.

It doesn't ruin it, but it does dull it.  So you compensate by making the food more strongly flavored and therefore that much more awesome to your nonsmoking diners.

We all learned pretty quickly in culinary school to over season everything because most of the instructors had just burned out their taste buds completely at that point in their careers.

Yeah..I am a New Yorker.I know my surroundings.Whats going on around me.That went right over my head..Then there was the time a dude was in front of me at the bank.He walked out.coughing.Then came back.The teller sez "I can help you" I told the dude you were here before.. Go ahead..He sez no..go ahead..Next thing I know the teller sez "WE JUST GOT ROBBED" A couple of weeks later I went back and saw the girl that did a great job of distracting me and thanked her.She was as cool as a cucumber.  She said the Cops laughed at me on the surveillance video as she said "WE just got robbed"...And me all street wise said."Are you F*ckin' Sh*ttin' me?"

Yeah, I know he doesn't work there anymore, but the food at Les Halles is awesome because its straightforward French food with no bells or whistles. I could easily eat there a couple times a week and be happy.
