June 25th is #BOURDAINDAY a day designated by friends of the late chef and world traveler Anthony Bourdain.
June 25th, 2019 would have been his 63rd birthday.
Bourdain shot to fame nearly twenty years ago with his book “Kitchen Confidential,” in which he pulled back the curtain to let us see what really goes on in a restaurant kitchen. But his book also helped elevate food preparation to a desirable, even glamorous , profession.
I met him in the spring of 2001….
So what do you say we all go out to eat tonight, for Bourdain Day?
