About this Event

No one changed the perception of food culture in this country more than Anthony Bourdain. On what would have been his 68th birthday, we'll gather together to do a deep reading of A COOK'S TOUR with a 2024 lens. What has changed in the way we encounter and document our relationship to food and culinary travel-- and what hasn't.

We invite you to cook something inspired by the book-- or any of Anthony's work-- and bring it to share. It's never required-- but always embraced.

Our food writiting section has it all - fiction, memoir, food studies, history and more. Led by a member of our team, Bold Fork Book Club is a monthly in-shop event where we pick a book to read ahead and discuss together in a group-- with snacks!

If you want to learn more about food and meet other members of the Bold Fork community, this is the group for you. Past Book Club books have included: Franchise by Marica Chatelain, Land of Milk and Honey by Pamela Zhang, and Consider the Fork by Bee Wilson among others.

From the star of No Reservations, Anthony Bourdain's New York Times-bestselling chronicle of travelling the world in search the globe's greatest cuilnary adventures

"Bourdain shows himself to be one of the country's best food writers. His opinions are as strong as his language, and his tastes as infectious as his joy." -Sam Sifton, New York Times Book Review

The only thing "gonzo gastronome" and internationally bestselling author Anthony Bourdain loves as much as cooking is traveling. Inspired by the question, "What would be the perfect meal?," Tony sets out on a quest for his culinary holy grail, and in the process turns the notion of "perfection" inside out. From California to Cambodia, A Cooks' Tour chronicles the unpredictable adventures of America's boldest and bravest chef.

Fans of Bourdain will find much to love in revisting this classic culinary and travel memoir.


Anthony Bourdain was the author of the novels Bone in the Throat and Gone Bamboo, the memoir A Cook’s Tour, and the New York Times bestsellers Kitchen Confidential, Medium Raw, and Appetites. His work appeared in the New York Times and The New Yorker. He was the host of the popular television shows No Reservations and Parts Unknown. Bourdain died in June 2018.
