Anthony Bourdain was a refreshing breakaway from the huge crop of foodie chefs that rained down on restaurant and eating culture from the 1990s on.
For nearly twenty years after retiring from the grinding restaurant business, he lived his loves of food, travel, writing, and pushing boundaries, as an edgy poet eager to say anything, and everything he felt about the small, and large world around him.
Bourdain contributed volumes of eloquence and insight from the many roads of life he traveled. His steady TV presence kept me company over many meals inspired by his passion, as did his cultural narratives that lulled me to sleep dreaming of following his footsteps. I will miss every bit of this… a lot.
Maybe what I will miss most is the gift of his desire simply to share it all with us. 😔
