But there are a few things the No Reservations and Parts Unknown host will never eat again, including Icelandic fermented shark, Namibian warthog rectum —and airplane food.
In a conversation with Bon Appetit, Bourdain claimed that he never eats the food on the many, many plane rides he takes as he travels the world. “Never,” said Bourdain. “No one has ever felt better after eating plane food. I think people only eat it because they’re bored. I don’t eat on planes. I like to arrive hungry.”
Even when he’s traveling from New York, where he’s building a massive new food hall, to Tokyo or New Zealand or some other far-flung destination, Bourdain refuses to scarf down airplane food. “For a super-long flight, I’d order cheese and s**t load of port. I’d eat some cheese and drink myself stupid,” he said.
Perhaps airplanes should consider serving still-beating cobra hearts to the author and chef because we know he’d eat that.
