At my lunch with Jacques Pepin, Anthony Bourdain walked into the restaurant and, upon seeing Jacques, came over to our table to congratulate him on his new book.
Pepin: Thank you for the wonderful blurb!
Bourdain: Oh, of course, I was happy to.
As Bourdain was leaving, I congratulated him on his new imprint at Ecco. I asked him, What are your plans?
Bourdain: Whatever I want.
Me: Cookbooks? Mysteries?
Bourdain: Maybe even a new translation of Montaigne!
Pepin: Ah, wonderful. I think I have someone in mind for him.
