Anthony Bourdain Hits Provence

Anthony Bourdain and his No Reservations TV crew were in Provence recently, filming a lovely episode that's airing on the Travel Channel in the US this week. If you catch it, you see well-known local faces such as Jean and Cecile Chancel (Chateau Val Joanis), Anne Daguin and Hermann Van Beeck (Petite Duc) and artist Jeanne Bayol, who restores old gypsy caravans and makes exquisite one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories. The video clip is no longer online but you can see info and photos from the episode here

    Signed our both books of his, and such a neat guy.
