Birth Name - Anthony Michael Bourdain
Date of birth - June 25, 1956
Zodiac Sign - Cancer
Birth Place - New York City, New York, U.S.
Nationality - American
Height - 6′ 4″
Profession - Screenwriter, TV Personality, Television producer, TV chef, Author, Actor

Bourdain was born in New York City in 1956. His father was of French ancestry, but the roots of the family spam South America and Europe, too, mainly Spain, Austria and Ukraine, an aspect that probably accounts for Bourdain’s interest in world cuisine. He first developed a fondness for French food, then an interest in cuisine from around the world.

He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 1978 and started work in New York. He ran a number of restaurants, the peak of his career as a chef being his employment with the Brasserrie Les Halles in Manhattan.

Bourdain started writing in 2000 when he released his Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, which became a New York Times best-seller and brought Bourdain critical acclaim. Bourdain is the author of two other best-sellers as well, A Cook’s Tour released in 2001, recounting Bourdain’s explorations in various countries and his experiences of local cooking in many parts of the world and The Nasty Bits, released in 2006, which is a collection of essays about food and cooking. His No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach has also been a huge success and made into a television show as well. He wrote several other books, too and his articles are published in prestigious magazines and newspapers such as The New Yorker, Esquire and The Times.

Bourdain is probably best known to the international public as a television personality and chef. The success of Kitchen Confidential led to the launching of a show with the same title hosted by Bourdain himself and A Cook’s Tour was also made into a TV show. He appeared as judge in Top Chef five times and he often appears as a celebrity guest in cooking and food shows hosted by other chefs, too.

Bourdain has been very critical of chefs rising to fame by means of television shows, but he is also a personality willing to reconsider his point of view – proof of that is the episode in his No Reservations when he reconciles with formerly criticized fellow chef Emeril Lagasse.
