A sincere and belated Gastrokid congratulations to Anthony Bourdain and his wife Ottavia Busia on the birth of their now three month old daughter. While the birth was reported back in April, this week on the excellent food blog Ruhlman Bourdain writes about watching the reality series The Next Food Network Star through the eyes of a new parent (Bourdain’s a frequent guest poster on Ruhlman. While we’re at it, Michael Ruhlman himself has a smart post on Ratatouille this week). Bourdain writes in his post:
“Is it because I watch Next Food Network Star with a three month old girl on my lap that I find it increasingly compelling? ….. Is it because I’m looking through a pink tinted prism these days that I’m finding Bob Tuschman sympathetic Whether it’s the butterfly mobiles dangling from my ceiling–the onset of early dementia, or long delayed side effects of past drug use drawing me to the tube Sunday nights, I’ll be watching.”
And we’ll be watching you, Tony, for stories about what you feed your little one once she’s old enough to eat solids.
