"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
This Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT sees the first in a new series on CNN, Parts Unknown, which will be hosted by renowned U.S. chef, food critic and Emmy-winning globe trotter Anthony Bourdain.
Anthony’s travels have taken him to the far corners of the globe, but this week he'll be in New York to speak with Fareed on Global Public Square. Before then, we are inviting GPS readers to pose their own questions for Anthony.
So what would you like to ask? Please post your questions in the comments section below, and we’ll ask Anthony some of the best ones later this week.
what are your thoughts on globalization and how it affects culture and therefore, food..?
Tony, you've eaten and drank all kinds of stuff throughout the world. Have you ever gotten seriously ill from something you've eaten? Where?
Why the switch from Travel Channel to CNN? Will this show somehow be more political or more "substantive" or relevant to current events in some way? I actually thought No Reservations was one of the more substantive shows on TV – it was one of the few that I would put down my laptop or phone and actually watch, so it will be interesting to see where you go on CNN.
How much of your crew from No Reservations is going with you to this new show? It was such a well-made show.
Will CNN let you use bad words still? twitter @genpassport.
Some of your best past programs have been in unexpected places - Calif. high desert, Missouri Ozarks, Laos, etc. What places surprised you here in the US and globally?
I don't have a question, but I do like his show for the cultural diversity, the food and the wit Anthony brings. Bringing cultures together should always start with food and his show proves that, in my opinion.
What are the latest fusion foods you know and like these days? We know chimichangas and california rolls
but i see so many fusions that are ever coming out now, like wasabi hummus or bulgol gi tacos.
What's your take in facebooks findings about republicans liking donuts and democrats liking bagels or Pes Research's polls say Republicans think olive garden is authentic restaurants but democrats don't. Is there also polarization effects (or maybe it is partially cause of cultural polarization) in foods between rural/old/conservative people and urban/young/liberal people?
Hi Tony, still I remember the way you enjoyed the local pancake in our little paradise in West Java Indonesia. How do you see Indonesia as one of the potential tourism destination? As you know it is not only Bali and Borobudur but we have thousands beautiful island to explore.
I'd like to know who Tony' trips?
I'd like to know who pay Tony' trips?
I'd like to know if Tony feels his travel experiences overseas would be different if he was not American in the way that local people react to him and his crew.
No questions – no answers. Jamie Oliver is the better one, and will show you how to get done things.
Mr. Bourdain, when you travel in different parts of the world, sometimes you come across situations and grievances, that you don't necessary see in the industrialised West. Do you have the mindset of an anthropologist or you want to change and improve them?
I am moving to China for a year to teach English. Do you have any advice about food or sights?
Mr. Bourdain, when you travel have you ever come across foods you wouldn't try or perhaps one that you did and regretted later. One other thing, ever been told by another cook to get out of their kitchen.
What's your favorite bagel place in New York City?
anthony bourdain, someone actually worth watching and hearing on cnn.
rest of the network can take a hike.
For me, I need a dark room, solitude, and quiet, generally in the late hours of the night, in order to get in the mood to write. What is your writing process?
It would appear you are moving toward main stream as you start this new venture with CNN and some may be confused and think this is a money driven decision on your part. My question is, will you clarify the real reasons for leaving the Travel Channel while filming Parts Unknown? I think Vic doing a little bashing of Travel Channel could be a fun thing and give some people a good insight to what really goes on when the all mighty dollar is involved. They had a good thing going and they blew it. Looking forward to your new show!
Why is it so hard to figure out when CNN international will be showing this? I am not seeing at all on the schedule?
Throughout your culinary travels is there a common thread pertaining to preparation, condiments, serving styles etc.?
Bangkok, Thailand is the best food city in the world – for almost any kind of food, value, ready availability, etc. It checks all the boxes. True or False?
Hi Tony. With all of your travelling I imagine you might have some particular insight on where I should go next to live. Is there a Utopian society out there where everyone is happy? If not, what is your favorite place that has the best mix of economy and culture?
Anthony I love your show and willingness to travel and experience the variety of different cultures and food. As well as, giving a historical background of where you are and the origin of the plates of food. cant wait to see more
Dear Anthony, You are the greatest addition to CNN... As a travel professional (tour guide, interpreter, tour operator and a Silk Road Educator) who has been working with travelers around the globe including the Presidents and First Ladies of many countries, photographers, historians and adventurers I can tell that your show yesterday was so natural and so wonderful! Many of my travelers also have watched your show yesterday! Please do not hesitate contacting me about the cultural discovery tours or adventure travel to Central Asia and the Silk Road. http://www.silkroadtreasuretours.com firstname.lastname@example.org I wish you and CNN great success!
As far as I am concerned, anyone who can witness the slaughter of an animal and enjoy the eating of the same is not someone I would ever want to know...hopefully CNN will make this person a moot point in its future line up of programs.
