Azerbaijan blacklists US celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain

Azerbaijan blacklists US celebrity chef Anthony BourdainAzerbaijan has declared US celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain persona non grata over a visit to the Armenian-controlled breakaway territory of Nagorny Karabakh, officials said Thursday. The television star reportedly travelled to Karabakh earlier this month to produce an episode of his award-winning culinary show “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown”, which explores culture and cuisines of lesser-known places around the globe. Bourdain “has been put onto the persona non grata list for his disrespect of Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and sovereignty,” foreign ministry spokesman Hikmet Hajiyev told AFP.
