The Quotable Bourdain

28104_bourdain.jpgNow that they're friends, does Anthony Bourdain feel bad about making fun of Emeril so much in Kitchen Confidential? "First of all, as entertaining as it was to call him funny names -- and that's always fun -- it was never particularly heartfelt. And I think he always deserved more respect than I was giving him, as a man and as a chef. I've told him to his face, I still hated those shows ... He's like, 'Really? You really hated 'Essence of Emeril?' I said, 'Yeah. I really hated that show.'" [T-P]
