Gutsy 

What's that saying about breaking a few eggs to make an omelet? Well, to be the candid, shoot-from-the-hip kind of food celebrity Anthony Bourdain is, you have to a break a few eggs to make a few enemies: Paula Deen, Alice Waters, vegetarians — just to name a few.

 But for his many devoted followers, Bourdain is greater than the sum of his foot-in-mouth moments and loudly professed enemies. He's a whip-smart food fanatic, an expert in all things edible, and a fearless eater. Best of all, he serves up his culinary experiences with smart, funny, and often profane storytelling.

 The author of bestsellers Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw, Bourdain made a name for himself by bringing to light the shocking reality of working in a restaurant kitchen. He then built an empire on his personality as host of the Travel Channel's Emmy Award-winning show No Reservations. His most recent project is a food-themed graphic novel centered around his favorite sushi chef, Jiro Ono. Get JIRO! is currently at the top of The New York Times bestseller list.

 On Friday, Memphis fans will welcome Bourdain to the Orpheum on his "Guts & Glory" tour, where he will discuss his work and travels and entertain an open question-and-answer session with the audience.

"Guts & Glory: An Evening with Anthony Bourdain," Friday, November 2nd, 8 p.m. Tickets are $45-$55. orpheum-memphis.com
