Love this quote  

Posted by Stephen Lowe

Everybody watches chef shows nowadays, I've seen a few of them myself but the best show and most honest personality I've seen is Anthony Bourdain on his Travel Channel show, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations.  Everytime I watch this show I want to eat all kinds of different food, it makes me want to get out of my eating comfort zone.  I love his no BS attitude about everything, he is not concerned with putting on a front for someone else, he is just passionate about food and everything that goes into it.  This quote about vegetarians is priceless, this guys rules.

"Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn. To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living. Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, and an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food. The body, these waterheads imagine, is a temple that should not be polluted by animal protein. It's healthier, they insist, though every vegetarian waiter I've worked with is brought down by any rumor of a cold. Oh, I'll accommodate them, I'll rummage around for something to feed them, for a 'vegetarian plate', if called on to do so. Fourteen dollars for a few slices of grilled eggplant and zucchini suits my food cost fine."

-Anthony Bourdain, from his bestselling book, Kitchen Confidential


OK, now that's worth commenting on! That is hardcore--and awesome and hilarious. I knew I liked that guy. You just can't be a food lover and a vegetarian. It's an oxymoron.
