Amanpour asks Bourdain about the informal diplomacy of food and culture

Christiane Amanpour welcomed culinary expert and new CNN host Anthony Bourdain to “Amanpour” on Friday, April 12.

Bourdain recently visited Myanmar, the Congo, and Libya to sample the life, food, and culture of those former conflict nations for his new CNN program “Parts Unknown.”  Amanpour asked Bourdain about his thoughts on the relationship between food and culture and what people can learn about each other by learning more about other nations through tourism.
