More hot water for Bourdain
Anthony Bourdain is pushing back after another controversy over potentially offensive Canadian nicknames. The celebrity chef ’s CNN show, Parts Unknown, aired an episode Sunday on the cultural and culinary heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador. Someone asked Bourdain on Twitter why two Quebec chefs were with him when he visited the province last fall. Bourdain said the two “Frenchies” were the ones “solely responsible for enticing me there.” That sparked more controversy, coming after the show had already taken heat for using the term “Newfie” in a now deleted tweet promoting the episode.
