Good vs. Evil: An Evening with Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert

Two chefs. Two unlikely friends. Two very different careers and philosophies sharing one stage.

Join Anthony Bourdain, chef, author of "Medium Raw" and host of The Travel’s Channel’s No Reservations and Eric Ripert, renowned chef of Le Bernardin, author and regular guest on Bravo’s Top Chef as they share stories and muse on the place of food in our personal, community and global life. It's an evening of storytelling and observation providing frank and provocative insight into what really goes on behind the kitchen doors. For more information on Anthony Bourdain, click here.
