When it comes to Anthony Bourdain, most people fall under the love or the hate categories.
I am one of the people who love him. Yes, he can be a little rude, a little crass and sometimes a total ass, but I find him to be completely real, very unapologetic and totally hilarious. In fact, if I had to choose one person to have a drink with, it would be him.
When you have a drink with Anthony Bourdain, you are most certainly going to eat some delicious food as well so it really is the best of both worlds.
During his new show The Layover, he stops in LA. He stays at the Chateau Marmont (his favorite hotel in the world) and visits a number of restaurants – Korean BBQ, Mexican dives, etc. and we scribbled down every spot he visited. The next day we found ourselves at Ham Ji Park celebrating my birthday with Korean BBQ. The rest of the restaurants are added to the ridiculously long “LA Restaurant List.” Breakfast though, he made for himself in the kitchen of his private bungalow. It was a simple egg recipe – bacon & chive scrambled eggs.
I love it when chefs share their standard meals, and especially when they are nothing more than simple elements that come together in a very delicious way. This was no exception – it is an easy egg recipe that has become a staple in our home.
Obviously bacon and chives are the perfect pair for eggs and the addition of sour cream at the end of cooking ensures that you’ll have creamy, silky eggs – even if you over-cook them!
