Born to a French-American father (Pierre Bourdain, in photo, middle) and American mother (Gladys Bourdain, maiden name Sacksman), Anthony Bourdain (in photo, right) first discovered his love of food as a young boy while vacationing with his family on the coast of France. According to biography.com, "all it took to rouse Bourdain's insatiable appetites ... was a single oyster, plucked from the sea and still dripping wet, offered to him by a local fisherman."
