Anthony Bourdain will bring his Guts & Glory tour to Midwest City this fall with new, material that will add spice to Rose State Live's season. The internationally renowned chef, author and television host will visit the Rose State Performing Arts Theatre for one night only, Sunday, November 11. 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.
Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of bestselling titles Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw – both hilariously 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 has already reached the #1 spot on The New York Times bestseller list. Published in tandem with his former series on Food Network, his 2001 book A Cook’s Tour was also a bestseller in the US and UK.
A contributing authority for Food Arts magazine, Bourdain’s work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times and Gourmet. He has been profiled by CBS Sunday Morning and Nightline, and has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Colbert Report, Real Time with Bill Maher and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Bourdain will also host a brand new series on CNN in early 2013, expanding the network’s coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.
