Europe Files - Volume 6

We've compiled the best of Anthony Bourdain's Europe trips in The Europe Files - Volume 6, in which he explores Italy, Austria and France. In Venice, Italy, Tony visits a tiny, back-alley joint for cichetta, the Venetian version of tapas. Then he jets off to Burano, a tiny island just a short boat ride away from Venice. For generations, Da Romano has been known for its picture-perfect version of a much-loved dish - risotto. Cesare, a local Venetian chef and restaurateur, offers to take Tony to explore the island of Saint Erasmo, just outside Venice. They sample fresh-from-the-tree figs, plump tomatoes, freshly cut basil, along with a spread of salami, fragrant cheese, and fresh bread. They also enjoy a local beverage known as fragolina, "forbidden wine." Tony jets off to Austria to visit the famous Nosh Mart. His driver, Clemens, takes him to a charming, family-run shop in the market where he samples a plethora of interesting cheeses and pork products. Afterwards they bring their loot to Herta Gruber's cafe, where Herta prepares fried cordon bleu out of the ham and cheese they provide. Finally, Tony visits chef Ludo Lefebvre's hometown of Auxerre, France, and more importantly, Ludo's grandmother. After a tour of the wine cellar, she prepares a simple lunch of jambon chablisienne, ham cooked in white wine, cream, and tomatoes, and eggs meurette, poached eggs in a red wine sauce. Then Ludo takes Tony to a wine cave for a night of drinking and singing. After being initiated into Ludo's circle of friends, Tony snacks on boudin noir, parsley ham, sumartin cheese and bread, all washed down with glasses of local white wine.
