The professional kitchen is the last refuge of the misfit. It’s a place for people with bad pasts to find a new family.
Anthony Bourdain has been called the “original rock star of the culinary world" and the "Hemingway of gastronomy." His birthday is June 25th. He died in 2018. His CNN show “Parts Unknown” included a stop in Greenfield MA in 2014!
Check out a snippet of Anthony talking at The RECOVER Project and see more about the episode here. He also visited People's Pint and Hope & Olive!
He attended the Culinary Institute of America, graduating in 1978. While most of his early jobs in restaurants involved tasks like dishwashing, he steadily moved up in the ranks of the kitchen. By 1998, Bourdain had become the executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles in New York City. Around this time, he was also chronicling his experiences in the “culinary underbelly.” He wrote candidly about his heroin addiction.

The Café’s food philosophy is the reason its menus and meals have become a popular draw to our community. Our philosophy is to find a celebration that falls on each Saturday (or close to it) from any tradition or place on the planet.
Each week the Chef team searches the world for these opportunities to celebrate our community. We embrace cuisine from around the world and bring it to the table for all to eat. Our desire is to provide palette-expanding opportunities that meet the needs of all our guests.
Our food is made from scratch – rarely opening cans or boxes – and meets the needs of any dietary preference or restriction. Our weekly menu offers vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free foods as well as meat or fish protein options.
We believe that when we sit down together and share a meal we become a beloved community – a family who shares times of celebration and traditions.
