Anthony Bourdain

RIPPED By Guy Fieri ...

How Bout Those Drugs?

10/13/2012 4:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anthony Bourdain
got his ass served to him Thursday night -- when celebrity chef Guy Fieri exacted his revenge on the "No Reservations" host by taking shots at his druggie past ... AND he did it all for charity.

Guy unleashed his insults at the NYC Wine & Food Festival during a charity roast of Bourdain -- who is notorious for his incessant bashing of Food Network chefs.

Guy quipped, "Anthony ... I hear you’re the only one in [culinary] class who did most of his cooking with a spoon and a Bic lighter" ... referring to Bourdain's self-confessed past drug use.

The jab must have been a sweet moment for Guy -- who has endured years of Bourdain's verbal attacks. Like the time Bourdain called Guy's newest 600-seat NYC restaurant a "terror-dome" ... that serves crappy food.

So we gotta ask ...

It was a charity roast after all, so anything is fair game. Don't hate on Guy because of it.

I used to be a fan of his until I read his book " Restaurant Confidential". I really can't explain it but by the time I finished the book I wanted to kick his ass. Hey Tony,for your info most professions have a circle of honor and people who fight the fight together stand up for each other. You cook food for heaven sakes!!! You make it sound like you do something that only a few can do and how hard it is.
I get the impression he was a failure in the kitchen as a mediocre sous chef and couldn't wait to become a travel adviser. I've eaten in star restaurants all over the world, some good, some bad, no guarantees. But to be honest most of the best food I've eaten was made by people who cook for free and do it for the sole purpose of seeing the joy in the eyes of the people who eat it.
It's cooking not rocket science.
