GOOD VS. EVIL: An Evening with Anthony Bourdain & Eric Ripert Set for SHN Orpheum Theatre, 4/12
Two chefs. Two unlikely friends. Two very different careers and philosophies sharing one stage.
Join Anthony Bourdain and his good friend, Eric Ripert – internationally renowned chefs, authors, and television personalities – as they share stories and muse on the place of food in our personal, community, and global life. Their Good vs. Evil tour will visit San Francisco for one night only, 8PM - Friday, April 12th at the SHN Orpheum Theatre. This engaging evening of storytelling and observation, providing frank and provocative insight into what really goes on behind kitchen doors, will delight and intrigue.
Anthony Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of bestselling titles Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw – both hilariously blunt portraits of life in restaurant kitchens. His latest project Get Jiro!, a culinary-themed graphic novel, was released on July 3 and quickly reached the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. In addition to hosting Travel Channel’s Emmy Award-winning No Reservations and The Layover, Bourdain will serve as host for two new television shows premiering in 2013: The Taste, a cooking competition series for ABC, and a docu-series for CNN, expanding the network’s coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.
Eric Ripert is the chef and co-owner of New York’s famed Le Bernardin, which continues to receive universal critical acclaim, including three stars from the Michelin Guide, an unprecedented “29” food rating from the Zagat Guide for the past three years, and consistent four-star reviews from the New York Times for over two decades. He has also served as guest judge and “fan favorite” on Bravo’s Top Chef for several seasons. Ripert is the author of four cookbooks, including 2010’s Avec Eric (based on his popular PBS program of the same name), On the Line, A Return to Cooking, and the Le Bernardin Cookbook.
