Remember when you were with The Beatles?

I probably could have been a little more eloquent, and there were times when things looked like they were about to go cataclysmically bad, but still--I did it. I interviewed Anthony Bourdain.
The result is currently posted at, and will be excerpted in this week's Isthmus, if you're in the Madison area and like holding actual newsprint.
Bourdain will be in Madison on November 18th, speaking at the Overture Center for the Arts (I'm going, of course) about his newest book, Medium Raw. It's a good read; the prologue is actually really terrific. So brush up on your Bourdainology and check out what he had to tell me about Madison chefs, Alice Waters' spoon, and why Tea Partiers should be more concerned about what schoolchildren eat for lunch.
