This week, we are taking a journey to Vietnam and to Rome for two culinary wonders in memory of Anthony Bourdain. If you are unfamiliar with Bourdain, he was an inspiring adventurer and storyteller. While I personally didn’t always appreciate his vulgarities (guess I’m a bit prudish), I greatly admired his curiosity and passion and have shared his love of food fueled adventures and chased his recommendations around the globe most of my adult life (from culinary classics in France to fried spiders in Cambodia to Hainanese Chicken Rice in Singapore to this week's Banh Mi sandwich in Vietnam). His ability to connect cultures through the sharing of food and make the world feel like a smaller, more accessible place was a true gift and leaves a sad void. Click here to watch Anthony Bourdain in ROME and get the inside story on this week's famous Roman dish, Cacio e Pepe (pronounce ca-cho-E-pep-ay). Olive oil, salt, and pepper are the only additional ingredients you will need to have on hand for preparing. The week's menu is below... happy cooking!
