Discovery Channel pays tribute to the legacy of culinary legend and ambassador of the world, Anthony Bourdain, with a new season of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. The series embodies his passion for uncovering hidden gems in seemingly-familiar areas of the world, celebrating diverse cultures through food and dining rituals and, most importantly, sharing these stories to inspire people to seek out their own adventures.
This season tours Singapore, Pittsburgh, Lagos, Sri Lanka, Southern Italy, Seattle and Puerto Rico, as Bourdain meets with a variety of locals to offer a window into their lifestyles and culture.
In the first episode, Bourdain and his long-time friend, three Michelin-starred chef Eric Ripert, embark on a ski-and-cheese-filled journey through the French Alps. We get a glimpse into Ripert’s early life and the duo overindulge in some delicious cheese dishes. They then team up to prepare a French meal, featuring caviar and steak au poivre, with the help of Ripert’s mentor Maurice Guillouet. Bourdain and Ripert also venture across the Italian border to La Maison Rose and indulge in Bourdain’s love of pasta with gnocchi, ravioli, and polenta.
