Anthony Bourdain No Reservations television host and bestselling author of Kitchen onfidential and Medium Raw has joined forces with Daniel Halpern, President and Publisher of Ecco.  He will create a Bourdain line of books at Ecco that will acquire books and publish three to five titles a year.

“I've encountered a lot of extraordinary people with exciting things to say.  This is a chance to get those voices heard,” said Bourdain. “ We look forward to publishing an unusual mix of new authors, existing works, neglected or under-appreciated masterworks, and translations of people from elsewhere who we think are just too damned brilliant not to be available in English,”  he explained.

Founded in 1971, Ecco marks its 40th anniversary this Fall. It publishes a wide range of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and cookbooks from authors such as Russell Banks, Mario Batali, Charles Bukowski, Leonard Cohen,  Werner Herzog,  Joyce Carol Oates,  Amy Tan, and Gloria Vanderbilt among many others, including recipients of the Nobel Prize, the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award, among others http://www.harpercollins.com.

Mr. Bradley had the same idea I've fathomed reading this announcement.
I would like to make a submission of non-fiction stories derived from my 12 years as a catering chef. As someone who doesn't own a TV, I was intrigued to find there were books and cable shows featuring the cooking underbelly.
I wonder if Mr. Bradley got anywhere with his above request? Doesn't hurt to stick your neck out, eh?
Thanks, mahalo, and hope to hear something.

Hi!
Although the likelyhood of this message achieving its intended purpose is highly improbable, I am nonetheless very interested in learning how I might make an unsolicited submission of a fiction manuscript for review.
For the last 18 years, I was the global sales manager for a multinational chemical company which afforded me the luxury of visiting many of the exotic locales and cultures depicted in Mr. Bourdain's travels and commentary. I've always harbored a remarkable kinship with Mr. Bourdain's joie de vie and learned long ago that if you want something in life, there are no regulations that govern how you acquire it.
Respectfully, I ask that you enlighten me.
Thank you for your time.
