Anthony Bourdain Can’t Resist KFC Mac ‘N’ Cheese

Chef, author and Food Network TV star of “No Reservations” Anthony Bourdain might review some of the toniest high-class restaurants around the world when he’s in front of the camera.

But during his off hours, he admits he can’t resist chowing down on macaroni and cheese, preferring the mac ‘n’ cheese served at The Colonel’s KFC fast food outlets or at national chicken chain Popeye’s. He calls the dish “my nastiest secret pleasure”.

“My nastiest secret pleasure is the mac and cheese at Popeyes or the Colonel (KFC),” Anthony told Parade magazine in an interview published March 11.

Bourdain was one of 20 well known celebrity chefs recently interviewed about the kinds of snacks and fast food items they enjoy consuming in secret, which ranged from such high calorie items as Cheese Doodles and beef jerky to Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream and doughnuts.
