It's Monday. We need Bourdain. And time.

Ah, Anthony Bourdain. So quotable, so ribald, so inappropriate.

The Atlantic found this timeline. Water, and not long after, beer. And almost the next day: sheep. Time should have ended in that first century -- after flan, but before haggis -- don't you think?

Baa the way, Mert's Heart and Soul plans to serve curry lamb stew, beside about 30 other restaurants, at Soup on Sunday on Jan. 31, a fundraiser for Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region. The event runs 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at CPCC's new Culinary Arts Center (425 N. Kings Drive) and you can buy tickets at the door ($30 and $40). 704-335-4312.

Dunno, I've dug Bourdain since reading his Kitchen Confidential way back when. But I also really enjoy watching Guy Fieri do his thing, finding little dives that manage to turn out good to great food. There is something redeeming about that, but I can see how he is the anti-Bourdain.

Pretty much the rest of the Food Network can DIAF though.

I enjoy any food show that comes with a parental guidance notice!

His act is getting old...Bourdain was a mediocre chef at best, and is bitter that the Food Network got rid of him. I agree that they overexpose their talent, but why begrudge someone for success?

Kind of ironic that he blasts the celebrity chefs when he made his bones on the same network he skewers.
