Anthony Bourdain

Tomorrow, June 25th, would have been Anthony Bourdain’s 64th birthday.

That’s why June 25th has been designated “Bourdain Day” by friends of the late chef, author, TV personality, and world traveler.

Bourdain shot to fame some 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 an elite profession.

I first met him in the spring of 2001….

Anthony Bourdain died on June 8th, 2018, by suicide, while on location in France for his TV show “Parts Unknown.”
