Anthony Bourdain's Culinary Quest Crosses Cultures

Chef, TV host and author Anthony Bourdain began his culinary career as a dishwasher and worked his way up to line cook, sous chef and chef in New York restaurant kitchens. Rave reviews for his 1997 article “Don’t Eat Before Reading This,” published in the “New Yorker,” helped spawn his New York Times bestselling memoir “Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly” in 2000. Instant fame launched the Culinary Institute of America graduate’s career from executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles to television host of “A Cook’s Tour,” and two Emmy-winning programs: “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” and CNN’s “Parts Unknown.” These programs have allowed Bourdain to swap New York kitchens for worldwide culinary adventures, as local hosts introduce him to their culture and cuisine. Tokyo Journal Executive Editor Anthony Al-Jamie spoke with Anthony Bourdain to find out how he went from small fry in the Big Apple to the big cheese on television’s top news, food and travel channels.

How to Make Miso-marinated Pork

Red miso (hatcho miso) has a very strong flavor. It’s sometimes compared to Vegemite or Marmite, and so some people don’t like to use it for miso soup. However, the strong flavor goes really great with pork given that pork also has a strong flavor.

Note: if you can’t find red miso, you can use 200 grams of brown miso instead.

  • Ingredients:
  • 4 cuts tonkatsu pork
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100 grams red miso (hatcho miso)
  • 100 grams brown miso
  • 4 tablespoons sake
  • 4 tablespoons mirin
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Tiramisu

Tiramisu

I had friends over the other night and I decided to make Tiramisu. The origins of Tiramisu are widely debated, but it appears to have been invented in Treviso in the 1980s. One of the most popular Italian cakes, it is made of Savoiardi (also known as ladyfingers biscuits) dipped in espresso (with Marsala wine) and a whipped mixture of eggs, mascarpone and sugar. My recipe is a non-alcoholic version of the traditional one. I like it better this way because I find it is lighter. If you prefer the heavier version you just need to add some Marsala wine to the espresso used to soak the Savoiardi biscuits.
