In their raciest conversation yet, Mario Batali and Anthony Bourdain talk about food and sex and if the two should ever be combined.
Bourdain dominates the convo, which is a good thing, as we’d definitely kick Batali out of bed well before him.
Tony is pretty adamant about keeping the two pleasures separate. “I believe in food and sex, I believe in food then sex, but food and sex together?” he says, “I don’t see anything erotic about bringing food into bed. It gives a whole new meaning to rolling over into the wet spot.”
Even sex after food can be off the table. Bourdain says sex after a big meal at one of Thomas Keller’s restaurants would likely be an awkward gassy experience. Sex after a nice Japanese meal is a better option, but Tony says a potential partner must like her some uni. He’s said similar things before, telling Fodor’s “Take someone to Masa and if they don’t eat absolutely everything, there’s no possibility of a relationship.”
Good to know ladies. Too bad he has that wife and kid.
