After the publishing of Kitchen Confidential, but long before No Reservations, The Layover or Parts Unknown, Anthony Michael Bourdain hosted a little watched, not all that highly-rated show called A Cook’s Tour. The Food Network show that was Bourdain’s first foray into food and world-travel television aired for 35 episodes from 2002-2003, and now it’s available on Netflix. A Cook’s Tour is basically a precursor to No Reservations, with Bourdain traveling through exotic countries and cities while experiencing local culture and cuisine. From Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to Saint Petersburg in Russia, Bourdain tackles all the same types of situations and experiences you’re familiar with the same aplomb, biting wit and sarcasm that has defined the rest of his career except in A Cook’s Tour everything is decidedly nineties feeling. The production level leaves a little something to be desired compared to all of his other shows, but it’s Bourdain. All thirty-five episodes are worth watching on Netflix.

The coat rack is a necessary part of any entryway, but the functionality can get bogged down in all the coats, hats, scarves and bags that inevitably get stacked on each of the rungs or hooks. You won’t have that problem with The Switchboard coat rack. The 30″ long triangular rack includes 25 triangular wood hooks that rest against the wall until you fold them down to hold each of your daily items you don’t need for the moment. Made from beech wood, Switchboard is as stylish as it is functional.
