    I love your shows.. especially the one on Osaka during Obon… If you REALLY want to see Obon.. you must venture to Nagasaki,Japan… and bring ear plugs!! If you stay at the Holiday Inn on Hamani Machi.. all you have to do is to roll out of bed..through the bar and on to the main street.. Hamani Machi!! (Make “reservations” now…knowing Obon.. they will be booked wayyyyyyyy in advance!! ) I am a south Jersey girl.. first time out of the country (let alone Jersey!!) and have been living in nagasaki for almost two years now…

    Even though I loved your episode on Osaka… Nagasaki is the town to be in…….absolutely wonderful….the people .. the Yen Stores (are to die for) you just have to watch out for the literally … little ole ladies running through the markets!!!

    Unfortunately.. we will be leaving Nagasaki in March 2008… I hate to go…especially back to a society of mistrust… you never have to worry about loosing anything here.. they WILL return it!! with a bow!!

    Oh.. by the way… the plastic food is wonderful…just hurts a hell of a lot coming out!!!and as far as hair days…. I can only wish my hair would look as good as these Japanese men~
    You hit home there!!

    Love ya…..

    and looking forward to seasons where you could be eating you food through a tube….only kidding…

    love ya!!


    PS have some Obon pics.. but dont know how to forward them to you.. they are a trip!! “Trust me” Nagasaki is fantastic!!

    … On a comment regarding the show Kitchen Confidential…How did fox really allow this show to happen? I am upset they tarnished the good name of Anthony Bourdain beyond what he could do on his own. This show serves no right to carry his last name or even a suggestion of anything he has done to even compliment a part of his career. This is a bastardized version of his book that fox is trying to exploit for a bad reason. Fox has showed that they cannot stand the heat so get the hell out of the kitchen.I would really like to know how they got this approved.

    Anthony please! we are not interested in what you have to say about paula deen most of us see what your eating on you can’t talk about paula

  6. Patricia on August 21st, 2011 8:24 am

    You are the disgusting. And, shame on you. Paula Deen has wonderful recipes. Moderation is what we all must do no matter what we choose to eat. We dine out and use the same rule. Why are you so mean. I will never watch you again until you give Paula an apology.

    You are disgusting. And, shame on you, Anthony! Paula Deen has wonderful recipes for people such as I who enjoy different cuisines! Shame on “you”! Who are you to think you can say such hurtful things about your co-workers! You are such a “little man” to be so insensitive to the world of “The Food Network Channel” and the “Travel Channel”. At one time, I enjoyed watching your program with a little reservations, but I will make arrangements to watch a different channel until I see and hear you have made a public apology to Paula Deen and now for goodness sake, I’ve heard on the news that you have now gone so far as to bash, Rachel Ray! Good gosh! What in the world are you thinking! So sad and disapointing of you! One of these days, you will realize what matters and what doesn’t. It matters so little how much you may own, the places you’ve been or the people you’ve known. It all comes to nothing when placed at “HIS” feet, it’s just memories to keep. How sad it is when one person on this earth puts down another human being. You are truly a disapointment to me and my family! The Travel Channel should think of a replacement for you if you don’t posses any more professionalism that what you have displayed in the media lately. I hope to hear you have made a public apology!

    You are a freak!! Shame on you for saying ANYTHING about Paula Deen. You should be off TV and any other media sort for life!! FYI, I have been eating GOOD FOOD like Paula Deen cooks for ages and I am physically fit, my blood tests are all normal and YOU, idiot, are just that, an idiot. God has a way of getting back at devils which is what you are!!

    You people who Judge Anthony Bourdain for speaking his mind are hypocritical. You too are judging him by speaking your minds.
    Anthony Bourdain is disgusted by the fact that Paual Deen is EXPLOITING these situations. Which ones you may ask? She knew she had diabetes years before her “initial” announcement. What did she do? She could have adapted to a more healthier lifestyle and showed people healthier recipes, but instead did the opposite. And while doing all that, she was a PAID spokeswoman for diabetes. Does this not seem right to you as well? Anthony Bourdain has every right to express his opinions. You too, but the way you express yours are invalid.

    I was a very early fan, observing and following your career and work with relish. But you are the worst kind of sellout. I respected you for criticizing the whores of TV, the so-called “reality” TV. And then you sell out EVERYTHING and do a show called “Taste” (!!!!!) that is worse than any of these bs wastes of our time. The fact that it is so bad is not the point. YOU were supposed to be better than this. But because your once criticized the medium and now spread your cheeks for it you are SCUM.

  11. Bryon Propst on February 10th, 2013 8:47 pm

    Sorry, I somehow feel that I missed the primary point. So, you are worse than scum you are LAME. What a joke. Taste THIS.

  12. Rich on March 14th, 2013 8:42 pm

    Thank you. For rising above the mindless drivel that constitutes television nowadays. And for pissing off all the Paula Dean fans. HI YAWWWWWW!!!!! Ugh. Finally, loved your guest spot on Archer. Keep up the good work sir.

    You may have a good show, but as soon as you used GD in your television show, I turned you off. You may want to clean up your language for a show that goes out to millions.
