Mr. Bourdain has been doing a barrage of press interviews to introduce/launch his new television program “Parts Unknown” on CNN, which premieres this Sunday, 14 April 2013 at 9pm ET. The first episode takes him to Myanmar, a place that has only recently cracked open just a bit and prior to a couple of years ago, was off-limits to most visitors. I am so happy Mr. Bourdain has found a new home, and that now we can look forward to truly unusual locations and food from places I can only dream of going to, or wouldn’t necessarily even see myself going to — Myanmar, yes… Congo, no… Libya, no… Koreatown L.A., yes. :)
But unbeknownst to me, in one of his lengthier interviews on CNN, someone asked him what was the best pork dish he has ever had… and of course his answer is a source of a continuing Marketman & Crew KILIG moment. :) See the video of the interview here, pay attention to 5:28 minute mark for the specific reference. :) It’s been almost five years(!) since we played host to Mr. Bourdain in late 2008, and his No Reservations episode on the Philippines aired in February 2009, so you’d think in the past five years he would have come across some other terrific pork dishes… We are honored to have made a lasting impression. :)
Many thanks to reader, G, who left a comment regarding this CNN interview. Salamat.
