    Default Saw Bourdain tonight

    He was in town to give a lecture for IdeaFestival.

    A good speaker, funny - he was talking about food and culture. If
    you've read his books, there probably weren't any new revelations, but
    it was good to see and hear him live.

    Thanks for the link! He did mention his daughter and the cat - nobody
    brought up cuticles. Unfortunatley, he didn't get a chance to
    experience Louisville. It was just fly in, give the talk, and fly out
    the same night.

    I remember reading that he wants to try giant squid.
    If I had a chance to see him, I'd tell him he can't.
    Giant squid are inedible. One of the adaptations
    they've made for living very deep in the ocean is
    that there's a high content of ammonia in their flesh.
    Other deep-diving squid such as the vampire squid
    also have this adaptation.

    I caught him last time he was in Philly to give a talk at the Author events
    at the Free Library. An engaging speaker. He was direct and funny.

    If you want to hear the talk it is archived here...
