ANTHONY BOURDAIN IN T&T
Written by IrieJam Radio on January 5, 2017
A popular U.S. chef and food critic is in Trinidad & Tobago.
Yesterday host of “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown”, posted a photo on his social media account indicating that he is visiting T&T.
The selfie posted on Instagram – in which Bourdain appears to be in a hotel room, was captioned “What did they say about Nixon? “Tanned, rested and ready.” #Trinidad”.
Via his “Parts Unknown”, once a week Bourdain shows viewers cultures rarely visited by U.S. television, as he explores indigenous food, culture, and political issues.
As part of his hour long profile, Bourdain often visits remote communities and partakes of local eating and drinking customs, unafraid to consume whatever and however native rituals dictate.
Bourdain says “eat and drink with people without fear and prejudice. They open up to you in ways that somebody writing a story may not get.”
Details of Bourdain’s T&T visit are still unavailable, as he keeps his trips highly confidential during filming, as to capture the true essence of local culture.
As the Instagram post continues to be share on social media, Trinidadians are inviting Anthony Bourdain to sample foods such as doubles, bake and shark, pastelles, and local high proof rum, Puncheon.
Bourdain’s visit to Trinidad & Tobago makes the 3rd time in the past few weeks the twin island has hit the international radar. Last week the New York Times featured a story on popular restaurant ‘Wings’ and
Vogue magazine listed it #6 of “The 10 Hottest Travel Destinations of 2017”. It was the only Caribbean country to make the list.
Last year the only Caribbean country featured on “Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” was Jamaica.
