EAST LANSING – Anthony Bourdain will bring his Guts & Glory Tour to East Lansing this spring. The internationally renowned chef, author, and television host will visit the Wharton Center for one night only at 7:30 p.m. on May 7. Bourdain will spend the evening sharing candid, often hysterical insights about his life’s work and travels, including an open question and answer session with the audience. Tickets are available online at whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Ticket Office at Wharton Center, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of bestselling titles Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw – both blunt and sometimes shocking portraits of life in restaurant kitchens. His latest project Get JIRO!, a culinary-themed graphic novel, was released on July 3 and quickly reached the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. His 2001 travel journal, A Cook’s Tour, was also a bestseller in the US and UK.
In addition to hosting Travel Channel’s Emmy Award-winning No Reservations and The Layover, Bourdain will serve as host for two new television shows premiering in 2013: The Taste, a cooking competition series for ABC, and a docu-series for CNN, expanding the network’s coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.
