Are you a fan? He is surely an interesting guy with a knack for food adventure and arrogance. In theory, can't stand him. Watchable still? Sometimes, in doses. Just the same, he does know his stuff and stretches the modern day food obsession lifestyle to the limits.

From the website:

On Extreme Cuisine, Bourdain Notes: "Chewing some antibiotics is a small price to pay."

From a recent FOX write-up on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations:

NEW YORK - Anthony Bourdain suffered quietly as he dined on wart hog - encrusted with sand, fur and fecal bacteria - in the African country of Namibia.

Bourdain, host of the Travel Channel's "No Reservations," finished the meal knowing he would become terribly ill. But who was he to complain as a VIP guest of the same arid landscape where Angelina Jolie delivered Brad Pitt's baby?

Spitting out nasty bits of wart hog would be rude to the locals he was dining with.

"The chief is there in front of his whole tribe offering you his very best," Bourdain said. "Show respect. I'm lucky to be there. I'm lucky to see that. I'm lucky to have that experience. Chewing some antibiotics is a small price to pay."

Does that not sum up the best mentality towards food and life in general?

    I'm a fan of Bourdain's since 'Kitchen Confidential' came out.

    And I've see the warthog episode a number of times. My husband thinks it's hilarious and wins the prize for the most disgusting meal on the planet.

    He does take his job seriously, doesn't he?
