Laurie Woolever’s Greener Variation on an Extremely Controversial Stew
Laurie Woolever spent the past decade working as Anthony Bourdain's assistant. She's now the author of two books, one the NYT bestselling Bourdain: The Definitive Oral Biography and the other, co-written with Bourdain before his passing, World Travel: An Irreverent Guide. In today's session, Laurie opens up about her time working with Tony, explains how her voice is present in the biography without giving her own testimonial, and offers up her insight into what happened in his final days. We also zero in on Laurie herself: her journey from Cornell to culinary school to being a private chef to working for Mario Batali -- spending time in the Babbo kitchen -- before landing her job as Anthony Bourdain's lieutenant.
