Anthony Bourdain - No Reservations, Best of Bourdain Full Episode Guide

  • Anthony Bourdain unravels Panama, a country that in the modern day, seems to be described simply by "abundance" and truly embraces crossroad cultures and adapts them for their own.

  • Tony roars thought the High Desert of California US in a classic Thunderbird. He meets up with local Josh Homme of Queens of The Stone Age and they explore the area while recording a soundtrack at The Rancho de la Luna studio.

  • While Macau is a Portuguese/Chinese mash, it's the great God of gambling that controls this island. Here, Tony plays baccarat with a local legend, kart races with a Macau champion, and dives off the world's highest bungee jump.

  • Tony travels to Kansas City, the BBQ capital of the world, with pal Zamir Gotta, in search of the best barbeque. While there, Tony meets up with musicians, Dan and Patrick of The Black Keys for some serious finger licking meat.

  • Tony savors all the simple stews, fresh fish, and exotic fruits that Ecuador's eateries and street vendors have to offer.

  • I'm combining this and Food Porn 2 because they constitute a body of work -- a filthy, totally prurient interest kind of work that I'm really proud of.
