Travel Channel announced special programming today in tribute to Anthony Bourdain, the food and travel icon who died last week.
“Anthony Bourdain touched millions with his intrepid storytelling and forever changed the food and travelogue television genre,” the channel said in its announcement. “Fans looking to remember the iconic and trailblazing traveler can catch favorite episodes of ‘Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations’ each Tuesday night June 12 through July 3 at 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET/PT on Travel Channel.”
The announcement adds: “Tomorrow at 10 p.m., Bourdain visits Washington, D.C., to explore this city of contrasts — Democrat vs. Republican, affluent vs. poor, visible vs. invisible, black vs. white. He samples the diversity of its culinary options, including Irish, Mexican and Ethiopian food, as well as local landmark Ben’s Chili Bowl.
“Then at 11 p.m., blood sausage, hunting, pastries and something called ‘Pus’ stick challenge Bourdain’s pre-conception of Vienna as a ‘Sound of Music’ and pastry-filled nightmare.
“In future weeks, viewers will see Bourdain’s unique takes on Detroit, Venice, Beirut and more.”
