American celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain has visited Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh, to the delight of Armenians and the chagrin of Baku.

Bourdain visited the region last week, filming an episode of his CNN show Parts Unknown, in which he explores the exotic food cultures of various far-flung countries. 

He was photographed enjoying an al fresco lunch near Shusha, in Karabakh. And he hobnobbed with several Armenian celebrities. His host in Shusha was well known journalist Tatul Hakobyan. In Yerevan he met Narek Margaryan and Sergey Sargsyan, the duo behind the TV show ArmComedy.  And on twitter, Bourdain thanked Serj Tankian, the Armenian-American leader of the rock group System of a Down, for arranging the visit: "Thanks @serjtankian for finally getting me to Armenia and making it awesome."
