You might know them from Travel Channel’s Emmy Award-winning “No Reservations” and “The Layover,” and if you don’t then you probably should lock yourself in your room until you’ve watched a few episodes of each.

Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert, world renowned chefs, are coming to Macky Auditorium (285 University Ave. Boulder) at the University of Colorado Boulder Sunday April 14 at 7 p.m. to ponder food in life, personally and globally.


“There’s no other mission than to have fun. We decided to visit a few cities and at the same time discover a little bit while we are there,” Ripert wrote to the Collegian in an email.

The two celebrity chefs are on their Good vs. Evil tour across the nation to provide insight into the behind the scenes of a kitchen.

According to Ripert, the two chefs hardly see each other even though they both are chefs at large restaurants in New York.

Ripert wrote that being on tour is “great because we get to catch up and hang out. He is usually so busy with his new tv show and his books, etc. so we rarely get to see each other back in New York.”

Tickets run from $45 to $150 for a VIP pass that includes a meet and greet.
