Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert are both authors, chefs, TV personalities and world travelers. But the friends couldn’t be more different. “Tony” is frank, sarcastic and his “No Reservations” show comes with a viewer-beware warning. Eric, on the other hand, is a demure Frenchman known for his prowess with seafood. He’s the “chef’s chef,” if you will.
On Sept. 30, you can see them both live–unedited–on one stage, in Indy. The celebrity chefs are appearing as part of the Food for Thought program, brought to you by the Indiana Humanities Council and Spirit & Place Festival. They’ll talk about food, of course, but the conversation will be about much more than what’s on your plate. The world travelers will talk about how cultures are defined by food, and how food defines a culture.
So what are you most excited to hear? Or, more bluntly, who are you coming to see and hear? Is it to see how many cuss words Tony will drop, or what kind of secrets he’ll share about what REALLY goes on in a kitchen? Or is to listen to Eric muse on world cultures and the place of food in communities? One of TV’s biggest celebrity chefs or one of the world’s best chefs…who are you most excited about?
