June 25, 1956 – June 8, 2018
Cook, Chef, Writer, Avid Traveler, Journalist. The photo above I took at a benefit charity event in January 2013 in Manhattan. He is talking with Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich. When the Food Network first started out in the 1990s Anthony Bourdain had a show called a “Cooks Tour”. His sense of humor, sense of adventure and curiosity just fascinated me. Then I read his book Kitchen Confidential, and from then on I had been a fan for the past 20 years or so.
This is still very new and painful, but he deserves to be noted here along with all the other greats, he was a legend and one of the people responsible for my avid interest in food, culture and travel.
