I think Bourdain is up-front and honest especially if one sees the subtext of A Cook's Tour as being about taking advantage of good fortune.
That's a cogent point. Not advertised as such on the cover or flaps so not one expected by most readers.
In any case, I'll enjoy watching the series when it's eventually shown on Food Network Canada.
I would just like to see Mr. Bourdain do more on cooking that I can relate to. Like take the topic of offal and get to its guts. Or get together fellow professionals and wrangle out the best cut of steak anywhere and the best way to cook it. And sell it. What steak has meant, can mean, might mean. And so on.
