If you don't have the foggiest idea who the heck Anthony Bourdain is, you might want to skip this post and head over to find out what else is going on in Tulsa this weekend. It's okay. I won't get mad. You totally have my permission.

But if you do know who the heck Anthony Bourdain is...

On Saturday night, this could be you.

Thanks to the generosity of a loyal and long-time TDT reader, one of you lucky foodies gets two tickets to Anthony Bourdain's Saturday night talk at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center.

And they're not just any tickets - they're in Orchestra Row K, seats 3 and 4.

If you win these tickets, you'll be from here...

To win, all you gotta do is head to the comments section of this post and tell me about your favorite food.

My favorite food is pasta! Anything involving any sort of noodle is the best!

What's Cookin Stacey?? said...

OMG! There are sooo many. :) How about Ron's Sausage Burger covered in Ron's chili with Ron's Spanish Fries???? Or pasta with roasted cherry tomatoes, basil, and tons of garlic and olive oil of course!!!!

I love eggs with smoked salmon!

Cherie Mann said...

Where do I start, well today we had phat phillies with jalepenos for lunch. Pretty much anything on the menu at Elote. But my favorite is Pho from Cafe Hmong With fresh bean sprouts, cilantro lime and a dash of sirache.

ES said...

My favorite food ever is my grandmother's chopped liver. Oh, if they only made chopped liver in Oklahoma the way they make in on the east coast.. and if only there were a real jewish deli around. <3

Lindsay said...

Chips, Salsa, and Queso. Simple, but DELICIOUS :)

Jym said...

My favorite food ever is the deep dish Chicago style pizza I make with Portuguese Chourico sausage - which is NOT Mexican or Spanish chorizo.

Ryan said...

That would be a "Swankie Frankie" for the win. It's basically a gourmet bagel dog (what happened to bagel dogs by the way?...impossible to find anymore) where the wiener is wrapped in bacon, inside the bagel housing. From there you simply bite a hole, not unlike a sopapilla to get the honey in, and squirt in some spicy mustard and maybe some Tabasco. The closest place to get this that I know of is 700 miles NNE from here, so somebody local needs to step up. Fat Guys? Soundpony?

Amanda DeGarmo said...

I love Sushi...I love how you can chose different rolls and each one is different on your taste buds. YUM! I'm hungry now!

AngieBrumley said...

Gotta love a guy with a food show that contains a parental advisory!! Anthony Bourdain is one of a kind!

My favorite food is tabouli. I could eat my weight in tabouli. I really love Mediterranean food in general...hummus, pita, kafta, falafel, hashwa...oh how I miss Halim & Mimi...

Barbara said...

Anything chocolate!!!

Courtney said...

Picking a favorite food is like picking a favorite child. That being said, sometimes one child is better than the other on a particular day. So for today, my favorite food is Fried Green Tomatoes. They're only around (affordably) for a season, so I have to love the heck out of them while I can. After this season is over, my favorite food is a funnel cake. Cause you know, it'll be state fair time!

Angie said...

My absolute favorite food is guacamole - I can eat it on anything (seriously, bacon & guac is the best thing ever!)

Kristi said...

My favorite has to be Mexican. The cheesier the better! So good, but so bad for the waist-line!

Bourdain is the best and so funny.

Becky said...

Onion rings. I love onion rings. But, I am allergic to them now since I developed this terrible wheat allergy. But, I make my own with rice flour and they are okay, I guess. Michael Fusco makes some good ones too that he puts on top of his steaks.

I'll tell you that it is hard to beat my mom's meatloaf. There is something about putting love into a meal that you know people that you care about are going to eat. Maybe all your meals seem to have that love ingredient, but when it's a meal that represents stability because it's always the same, the love just has a flavor you can't buy.

boyhowdy said...

Fish tacos... no question.

Steph said...

I love pasta!

mistyowen said...

Wet burrito at the Green River. Packed full of meat, cheese, rice covered in cheese and salsa. Best food coldest coke in a bottle and chips are always the freshest. El Rio Verde

Sunshine said...

My favorite is ropa vieja. So flavorful!

Anessa said...

lentil soup and cornbread muffins! not very exciting but i could eat it every day i'm certain.

Mercedes Millberry said...

My favorite food is anything berry. I am not picky on the berry type, but blackberry and raspberry are my favorites.

We would love to go to this concert. We didn't buy tickets because we thought we were going to be out of town, but plans fell through. This would help make up for that!

BBQ Shrimp

New Orleans is one of my favorite places in the world. This dish is often misinterpreted by locals here. BBQ Shrimp has a mix of bay leaves, rosemary, garlic, paprika and more all mixed together in a warm broth. With this flavorful shrimp you also get an amazing dipping sauce from the broth. Wow now I am really hungry!!

\\trent said...

I'll have to say asada tacos (from the truck) or for bonus points anything that Mimi from Halim and Mimi's used to make. That was good stuff.

Somebody should tell Bourdain to eat at Villa Ravenna. He'd like it. I love it!

Carrisa said...

I perfectly grilled ribeye steak. There's not much better in the world.

this20sgirl said...

Crepes! The best I've ever had were at a restaurant called 'Squat and Gobble'. ;)

Boot ~C said...

well I could try & be funny & say I only like 2 kinds of food, hot food & cold food, (like I like my pie)because that is a tough choice, I love most all food.Ted's for mexican & cheese enchiladas,homemdae pizza w/ my neice & nephew,grilled ribeyes for a family get together( & I am the grillmaster)Rick's for fried chicken,spinach salad, & pot a creme, Dragonmoon for the turkey/cranberry/cream cheese croissant & baked chocolate pudding... I think you get the idea. We are some crazed foodies who talk about our next meal over a meal!As much as I love food, I love Tony for his snark,tolerance for liquor, & ability to eat anus(well cleaned or not) w/ style & grace.

My Nanny's lasagna. I miss it!

John said...

Lasagna

jillwhitney said...

Have you ever had grilled tilapia fish tacos? They are delicious. Grilled tilapia with taco seasoning in a warmed corn tortilla, topped with pineapple, avocado, slaw, pineapple-mango salsa (from Archer Farms, of course) and shredded cheese to top it off. Serve it with a sweet glass of sangria & no other meal can compare...

ufez said...

It's gotta be tomatoes. So deliciously sweet and diverse. Since it's been grilling season, I've been making homemade salsa and fajitas nearly every weekend. Delicious on so many levels.

Christian Threadgill said...

I have so many favorites, but I can't ever say "no" to dessert! I love to bake, and I've mastered some of the toughest desserts out there: cheesecakes, flan, creme brulee, etc. But my favorite dessert will always be a warm chocolate chip cookie!

Anonymous said...

Fresh avocado is a delight! Guacamole is good when it's simple.

WE GOT THE BEET!
Buy beets at local farmers’ market, rinse them off and put the whole bunch in pot of boiling water (you can curve the stalks around the pot to get them to fit. Add sea salt, lots of black pepper and about ¼ cup butter. MOST IMPORTANT PART – sit down and have a glass of wine for one hour. Then, remove the beets and put them on a platter. Add more salt, pepper and/or butter to your own taste. EAT ‘EM UP YUM!

Michael said...

I'm going to have to agree with Bourdain himself and say: any sort of slow roasted pig.

Oooh good lord.

Chili Verde. Every time this is available I end up eating way too much... So it is just a once in a while kind of food but always a favorite.

Carrie said...

My favorite food...that is hard, but I guess tonight I would say Thai food, the spicier the better!

PeterZ said...

Pork. My favorite food is an ingredient. Sweet, unctuous, luscious, versatile Pork. Smokey Pork BBQ, pulled or ribs, wet or dry. Pork in a tube, spiced and smoked. Pork in stews, like goulash swimming in a paprika broth. And carnitas, tacos filled with crispy pork. Roast Pork, fragrant with caraway and garlic. Whole Roast Pig with crispy skin and meat dripping in its own juices, unadulterated and in no need of any assistance. Tender young Suckling Pig. Thick juicy Pork Chops, pan-fried or grilled, or braised. Pork perfectly complemented by sauerkraut, or apples, or beans -- a myriad of complementary dishes to make the meal a total experience. Then there's breaded and fried, in a classic schnitzel. And lest I forget, cured pork. I'm talking Ham. Salami. And Bacon, glorious Bacon rules! Everything but the squeal. But don't just take my word for it, ask Tony Bourdain, my brother in Pork.
