We’re honestly not surprised that Bourdain is hating on the pumpkin spice latte.

Anthony Bourdain, travel documentary host and food personality, took time out of his schedule eating in remote African countries and making snarky remarks to do a lengthy AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit.

One of the most important things we learned is that Anthony Bourdain is not a fan of the pumpkin spice craze: “I would like to see the pumpkin spice craze drowned in its own blood. Quickly.”

He also thinks juicing cleanses are perplexing: “If you've ever had a colonoscopy, the doctor gives you something that will cleanse you right quick, so I don't really understand juice cleanses.”

Here’s more we learned from Bourdain’s Reddit AMA:

He doesn’t miss being in the kitchen:

“Hell no! I had 30 years of that. I like farting through hotel sheets!”

His favorite dish might surprise you:

Cacio e pepe (spaghetti with cheese and pepper) or spaghetti a la bottarga (spaghetti topped with tuna)

Most underappreciated cuisine:

“Chinese food still remains a mystery to us, it's not really anything like what they eat in China. Our knowledge on Japanese is not so wonderful. Countries who's [sic] food is underrepresented, Brazil, Peru, higher end Mexican food, Burmese, West African. Food from Senegal and Ghana is amazing, delicious, complex and interesting.”

He loves Keith Richards:


He’d want to do a No Reservations show with Keith Richards on naval history, and Richards would also be one of his “five people I’d most like to have dinner with.”
