An­thony Bour­dain: The Lay­over

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 8.30pm, TLC An­thony Bour­dain is a blokey chef known for his witty cook­ing and travel writ­ing aimed squarely at men (‘‘don’t be such a pussy — a lit­tle pink flesh in chicken won’t kill you’’) and for the food and travel porn pro­gram No Reser­va­tions, which ran for nine years. While the pro­duc­tion style of The Lay­over is very sim­i­lar, the premise is en­tirely dif­fer­ent. In The Lay­over, Bour­dain gives ad­vice on how to keep one­self man­fully en­ter­tained, fed and wa­tered dur­ing that hor­ror of air travel best known to fre­quent fly­ers such as him­self — the lay­over. That’s when you have long hours to kill in a strange place be­tween flights. In this episode Bour­dain and crew hur­tle around Mi­ami, and the chef gets to live out his Mi­ami Vice fan­tasies.
