UM professor appears on Anthony Bourdain's "Parts Unknown"



If you were seeking out solid cable television last Sunday night, there was no shortage of options: the much-anticipated series finale of "Breaking Bad" on AMC, the season premier of Montana-made "Making Monsters" on Travel Channel and Anthony Bourdain's excellent "Parts Unknown" on CNN. Viewers clicking past the last one may have recognized a familiar face: University of Montana history professor Dan Flores.

Flores, who splits time between Montana and New Mexico, joined Bourdain for adventures in the Land of Enchantment, including a campfire meal and talk of traditional Santa Fe fare. Here's a video clip:

Flores, by the way, was not present when Bourdain tried the famous Frito pie at the Five and Dime General Store. The show's blunt host compared the revered dish to a steaming pile of crap and referred to the chili as store-bought Hormel. Turns out, the chili is made in-house every day — and New Mexicans don't take kindly to one of their signature dishes being dissed. Bourdain and CNN have since apologized.
