Anthony Bourdain is a very busy man and seems to be getting a bit busier by taking on another title, editor at large.
The popular chef, author, TV host & food hall developer has now taken a financial stake (and new writing gig) with “travel journalism site” Roads & Kingdoms.
According to Grub Street, “Following a night of one too many — or just the right number — glasses of sake, veteran journalist and Roads & Kingdoms co-founder Matt Goulding sent Anthony Bourdain a drunken email about investing in his web magazine“.
What sounds like a crazy idea paid off. Bourdain responded right away and is “now an investing partner and editor-at-large in the online-media company“.
Talk about a crazy story and surprising way to get a very famous investor!
According to Roads & Kingdoms, they are “an independent journal of food, politics, travel and culture“.
Bourdain won’t just be a silent partner, he’ll be editing a new long-form section called Dispatched.
