EXCLUSIVE: Anthony Bourdain On Prostitutes And Why They Will Never Love You

Someone smart kept the cameras rolling (figuratively) on the set of On The Table, Eric Ripert’s online cooking/interview/friendship show, because as a result, we have a copy of Anthony Bourdain’s interview from the very first episode. Herewith: what happened when Ripert ate biscuits and gravy for the first time (“it was like watching a dog trying to eat a grape”), the point of being a celebrity (it allows him to keep telling stories), and why he’s become exhausted with interviews that ask him the same questions, over and over again. (Hint: that quote up there? He’s the prostitute. It’s a metaphor. We think.)

Have a tip we should know?
