I was impressed that he gave Martha Stewart the props she deserves.

His attitude has changed drastically since he became a homemaker and father. I bet he's taken up crafting and scrapbooking as well.

This particular piece is a great example of how much Bourdain has changed over the years: he doesn't call Emeril an Ewok, he gives props to Martha, and he is basically a very reasonable-sounding guy. Honestly, I'm always a little surprised to compare his current No Reservations episodes with the early ones, and especially with his early writing. While he started out hilariously irreverent, he was basically just a very funny jackass. He's slightly less funny now (because just being jackass is kinda funny in and of itself), but seems to have gotten past the schtick. I wonder how much of the transformation into a "Kinder, Gentler Bourdain" is due to his travels, how much to his family, and how much just to getting older (and hopefully wiser!).
