Eric Ripert laughs when he answers questions about the differences between him and Anthony Bourdain. The two will appear Saturday night at the Hippodrome. Bourdain, who was born in New York in 1956, has described the American restaurant kitchens where he trained as lairs of lusty cooks who play by their own rules. Ripert, who was born in France in 1965 and trained there, says he comes from a different tradition. "In the kitchen where I worked, there was discipline, almost like a para-military organization," Ripert says.

Wow, tonight's episode of “Top Chef” marks a turning point in the season. With seven cheftestants left, Tom ships them back to San Antonio directly after Restaurant Wars. Sleep-deprived, mentally and physically exhausted, and on the edge of ripping each other's heads off, the chefs go home and the real challenges begin. Quickfire Challenge The chefs enter the kitchen and see Padma standing next to Eric Ripert, who is a member of the “Top Chef” family. If Anthony Bourdain is the drunken uncle at Thanksgiving, Uncle Eric is the one who quietly hands him a glass of watered-down wine.

Anthony Bourdain is famous for his ground-shifting "Kitchen Confidential" book, for his fearless food travels on his "No Reservations" cable show, and for being a charming loudmouth. His friend Eric Ripert is famous foremost for being a great chef, and, more recently, for his own frequent seatings at the "Top Chef" judges' table. But would two white-haired chefs sitting around talking make for a satisfying evening at the theater? That's what people wanted to know when the Hippodrome announced "An Evening with Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert," the first in a planned series of food-and-wine events the theater intends to make part of its expanded programming.

Anthony Bourdain is returning to the Hippodrome on Nov. 17. Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York's famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of bestsellers “Kitchen Confidential” and “Medium Raw” - blunt and sometimes shocking portraits of life in restaurant kitchens.   Bourdain launched the Hippodrome's annual Foodie Experience series back in May 2010, when he shared the theater's stage with his friend Eric Ripert. At that appearance, Bourdain made peace with the Baltimore audience, expressing regret for the disparaging comments made about Baltimore in “Kitchen: Confidential” (I was an “ignorant, pathetic junkie”)

Anthony Bourdain was about to say that he was "sorry" for the way he depicted Baltimore on his "No Reservations" show last winter on the Travel Channel. In that piece, he characterized Baltimore as a gritty city as he prowled rundown neighborhoods with characters from "The Wire," ate lake trout at The Roost in West Baltimore and pit beef at Chaps on Pulaski Highway, and chugged bluish cocktails with construction workers at Mo's Seafood in East Baltimore. The episode provoked outrage among some city pundits and bloggers, who thought it dissed the city.

Baltimoreans, a new Zagat survey says, are among the nation's least frequent diners, but they tip just fine. Only diners in Boston and Philadelphia say they dine out less frequently. On Tuesday, Zagat releases its 2012 America's Top Restaurants Survey, covering 1,578 of the nation's top restaurants across 45 U.S. markets, including Baltimore, which is yoked together in most, but not all, of the survey questions with Washington. Restaurant owners in Baltimore-D.C. area may have their work cut out for them.
