Next stop for James Ellroy of cooking
with Robin Kwong
The influx of big names coming to Hong Kong isn't limited to the film and music industries. Anthony Bourdain, host of A Cook's Tour - seen on CableTV and NOW Broadband TV - will be in Hong Kong for two days to do some filming.
Bourdain, executive chef at Manhattan's Brasserie Les Halles and something of a celebrity chef du jour, shot to fame in 2000 with his book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, a memoir of his 25 years cooking in New York. Since then, rather than fellow celebrity chefs, he has drawn comparisons with Hunter S. Thompson and James Ellroy - yes, he also happens to be a crime novelist. Bourdain will be in town on April 25 and 26. For a chance to win free tickets to dine with him, see the Post's food section on April 17.
