“Explore Parts Unknown” – More Regional Dives With Anthony Bourdin
Anthony Bourdin has made a name for himself not only as an itinerant food connoisseur, but also as a guide through which we learn about different cultures and cities. There is really so much of an episode of his show “Unknown Parts,” which is why a new companion site takes his travel stories even further.
Explore Parts Unknown is a travel site designed to watch episodes of the show and dive you deeper. The site is recently launched, so while there are enough seats to keep you busy for a couple of hours, not all of the show seats have been added yet. From what I’ve poked around, the site offers you two main routes: if you mean a destination and want background information on Bourdain, or if you just want to check out some content inspired by his travels through the show.
If your destination is already on the site (and new destinations are added weekly), you can see a “perfect day” with specific recommendations on where to eat (and what to order), what to visit, and background information to help you understand the place. which you are visiting. Aside from the articles, you can also watch videos that can give you an idea of what a place really is – always helpful when preparing for your trip.
If you don’t have a trip planned anytime soon, you can still use the site to get classic recipes for different cultures, or check out articles that delve into lesser-known information about the place (like how spring rolls became a common snack in Senegal . ). If you are a fan of Unknown Parts, this site is well worth your time to expand the travel experience the show gives you.
