CNN has released the schedule for Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown, and the famed celebrity chef’s excursion to Newfoundland and Labrador has officially been slated to air.
Bourdain’s visit to ‘The Rock’ in the fall of 2017 will be subject to the May 13th issue of Parts Unknown.
Here is CNN’s synopsis of the episode:
An exploration of this rocky, east coast Canadian island by Bourdain reveals a magical place abundant in fish and wild game and steeped in distinctive traditions. Guided by prominent chefs Frederic Moran, Jeremy Charles and David McMillan, the host takes part in cod fishing, moose hunting, and axe throwing and dines on charred whelk with brasciola, caribou tartare, and Newfoundland classic Jiggs Dinner (boiled meat & vegetables). A side trip to the nearby French archipelago of St. Pierre is the setting for a home cooked meal of sea urchin pâté, stuffed squid over rice and braised halibut.
Kicking off at 9 pm/est on April 29th, Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown’s new eight-episode season follows the veteran chef and best-selling author as he travels the globe in a celebration of diverse foods and culture. Outside of the much hyped Newfoundland episode, the season will include tours of Uruguay, Armenia, Bhutan, Berlin, U.S. Cajun country, and Hong Kong.
