Anthony Bourdain Goes to Ethiopia for CNN: This is Different

Best-selling writer and chef Anthony Bourdain teamed up with another best-selling writer and chef, Marcus Samuelsson, to visit Ethiopia for the CNN broadcast of Parts Unknown. Accompanied by Marcus’ wife, internationally-renown model Maya Haile, the three show us a “different Ethiopia” than the one depicted in the news–dominated images of poverty and famine. Rural life is shown as well as the modernity and vibrancy of Ethiopia’s capital city, Addis Ababa. The most touching scene of the program, and a slice of Ethiopia’s long history of religious tolerance, is when the two sheep are slaughtered in Maya’s village, home to people of the Gurage culture. Muslims and Ethiopian Orthodox Christians stand respectfully while the prayers and rituals of both religions are practiced within one united community of Ethiopians.
