And just like that, the tenth season of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown is coming to a close. This week’s finale, the eighth episode of the season, takes Bourdain to one of his favorite places: Southern Italy.
Over the course of his visit, CNN’s traveling host learns the origins of the bizarre Taranta dance; feasts on local meats, pastas, and sea creatures; and gets out on the water for a fishing trip. Bourdain, who claims that he typically watches while others on the boat do the grunt work, learns that fishing takes a strong back.
Movie buffs will want to tune in for Bourdain’s lunch with iconic filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola. The two dine at the Palazzo Margherita, which was once a palace used by officials in Benito Mussolini’s National Fascist Party. Now, the property is a boutique hotel owned by Coppola.
Parts Unknown: Southern Italy airs this Sunday, November 26, at 9 p.m. on CNN. Immediately following the East Coast premiere, head on over to Eater’s Facebook page for a live discussion of the episode.
