Ever the wanderer, TV host and culinarian Anthony Bourdain is constantly traveling around the world and eating. As such, it seems almost wrong that Bourdain hasn’t yet showcased Houston’s vibrant and diverse culinary scene, but that will soon change.

In town for the International Dairy, Deli, and Bakery Expo, Bourdain spoke and hosted a book signing yesterday afternoon. Once he finished, CultureMap reports that Bourdain headed to Plant It Forward’s Montrose farm to begin filming a Houston-focused episode of his CNN show Parts Unknown. And, of course, eat.

Scope out a photo of Bourdain on the farm below:

Plant It Forward, a nonprofit farm that employs refugees from the Congo, worked with Chef Arash Kharat to prepare dinner for Bourdain, and the cameras were definitely in tow. The menu featured vegetables grown on the farm, along with beef from Cameron, Texas’ 44 Farms.

Bourdain has been mum about his Houston plans, which means that you should keep a lookout for a very tall man slurping noodles or chowing down on tacos at a spot near you. As always, tips on Bourdain’s whereabouts are always appreciated.
