The Eye-Opening Trailer for Anthony Bourdain's New Documentary

  The Eye-Opening Trailer for Anthony Bourdain's New Documentary <p></p>The documentary that sheds light on the massive production of global food waste.&nbsp;Food television impresario Anthony Bourdain is throwing his weight behind a new cause with the release of Wasted!, a documentary that sheds light on the massive production of global food waste.

Combine two controversial pop culture artifacts, Yelp—is it useful tool or a space for grumpy diners to air their grievances against over-worked waitresses—and Anthony Bourdain—is the outspoken television host just a contrarian or are his cultural insights, about, for instance, the Unicorn Frappuccino, merely underappreciated—and you have a recipe for an epic showdown for the ages.

The Parts Unknownhost sat down with Danny Bowien, the chef behind Mission Chinese, for an interview with Business Insider, and things quickly got heated. Bourdain unleashed a slew of vitriol—perhaps deserved, depending on your perspective—against Yelp.

“There’s really no worse or lower human being than an elite Yelper,” he proclaims, rather boldly. Clearly, this is another instance of the former chef’s signature over-exaggeration, but he goes on to target Yelp for grievances that actually make a little more sense.

Humans waste roughly 30 percent of all food produced for human consumption, some 1.3 billion tons around the world; in America, the ratio is even higher, about 40 percent.

“You know, you open a restaurant, you struggle for a year to put together the money, you work your heart out, and then 10 minutes after opening, some miserable b*tch is tweeting or Yelping, “Worst. Dinner. Ever.”…It’s like, dude. That ain’t right,” Bourdain continues.

He concludes that people who post reviews on Yelp—which can actually be pretty useful if you’re making last-minute dinner plans and need to find a restaurant in hurry—are “bad for chefs [and] they’re bad for restaurants.”

So he doesn’t like Yelp, we get it. But maybe there’s a lesson here? Before you post a scathing review of a restaurant where you had a bad experience, maybe remember that there are hard-working people, with dreams of their own, behind it.

Thoughts on public forums where anyone can post a restaurant review, the interview contains a few other gems that further illuminate the strange world that Bourdain occupies. Take his Instagram (which he refers to, along with Twitter, as “a fully democratic bathroom wall that anyone can write on”) presence, for instance.

He speculates that if he posted a photo to his account depicting “me and the Dalai Lama and Keith Richards in a hot tub, smoking a bong,” he’d only get 5,000 likes. However, if he posted a photo of an In-N-Out burger, “I’ll get 50,000 passionate likes and comments in like 10 minutes,” a phenomenon he refers to as “so powerful and so weird.” Why the disparity? Because, according to Bourdain, “[people] either want to share them on Instagram or make other people feel bad about what they’re eating.”

Whether or not you like him, agree with him, or even watch his show, one thing is hard to deny: Bourdain—disgruntled as he might be—continues to come up new ways to skewer our current cultural moment.

He starts off gently, reminding the future chefs that they are “essentially in the business of nurturing” and—never one to miss a chance to be self-deprecating—quips that he spent 30 “not particularly distinguished years” in the industry. However, he quickly changes the topic to the work that made him famous, Kitchen Confidential.
