Israel & Food: “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown”

Israel & Food: “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown”

Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown: Season 2 Kicks Off Tomorrow in Israel

Anthony Bourdain kicks off the second season of his Parts Unknown series tomorrow night (September 15, 2013) on CNN. His first stop? Jerusalem.

In the season premiere of “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown,” the host and crew make their first trip to Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. While the political situation is often tense between the people living in these areas, Bourdain concentrates on their rich history, food and culture, and spends time with local chefs, home cooks, writers and amateur foodies.

The show will air on Sunday, September 15 at 9pm ET. The season premiere episode “Jerusalem” features tours of Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. And it is the perfect way to get a foodie sneak peek at the “Food Meets Faith” pilgrimage to the Holy Land that I will be leading in February 2014. Of course, tomorrow night’s show will probably not be as prayerful as the upcoming pilgrimage in February. 😉

It’s amazing to think that we will be walking the same roads that Jesus walked and eating the same types of food that Jesus ate. This pilgrimage is certainly going to be a one-of-a-kind type of trip. I would love for you to join us.

Check out this short clip of Anthony Bourdain walking where Jesus walked. I can’t wait to be there myself!
