You weren't a fan of him killing an animal to eat? Are you vegan?

:( Super sad.

My girlfriend broke into tears while watching the daily show this morning.

I don’t know what to say. Kitchen Confidential jump started my interest in the F&B industry. I hate reading this news.

Over a very somber breakfast this morning, my wife said, "My entire journey, the direction my life has taken, who I've become and the choices I've made in my career have so much to do with him."

Bourdain was a giant. His influence on my life will never be forgotten or taken for granted. He was a genuine inspiration to me. And my wife isn't exaggerating, either. What Bourdain inspired in her, the light he used to show her a path is undeniable.

This is the first celebrity influence of this magnitude that my wife has lost. I've lost many, many heroes that I'll never know. This is her first. I hate seeing her have to deal with this. But she's tough. We're both crying to each other and laughing as we remember him, our favorite episodes of his show, our favorite passages in his books.

He was at a restaurant opening event for the sister restaurant of the place where my wife used to work. She didn't wait on him but she did check on the table and bring him some food and wine at one point in the night. She was so excited to tell me about it. She didn't really speak to him, just the usual "can I get you anything else" "no, thank you" stuff you'd expect at a restaurant. But she was so excited to meet him, to see him. To watch him interact with food and place.

I can't believe he's gone.

I can relate to that, Joey.

My Bourdain story:

When I first read kitchen confidential, I was kind of lost. Didn’t have a real job, left school, lived alone..

Bourdain made life in a restaurant kitchen sound equal parts fulfilling and adventurous, with the good chefs honing skills that they could truly be proud of.

I wanted something like that, so I literally went to a restaurant near me point blank and asked for an application to be a chef.

They laughed in my face and gave me an application to be a server instead.

Though I followed the server/bartender/manager route, I always felt a deep connection with chefs, prep cooks, line cooks, etc. they speak a different language than servers...entirely.

I learned as much about this business from them and Bourdain than from any front of house manager or mentor. The kitchen of a restaurant is where you’ll find true passion - sometimes to a fault.

I’ve gone to the ends of the earth to hunt down a damn sandwich because Anthony Bourdain gave it the thumbs up. His endorsement could transform the lives of people from rags to riches in the unlikeliest of places, here in a hole-in-the-wall Bahn Mi shop in Hoi Ann where they now bust out 2,000 of these bad boys a day. What an absolute treasure he was and today I am reminded of my life motto: enjoy every sandwich


My GF's post about him. She has been crying all morning. Heartbreaking!

Yup. I work with a guy who basically went to Vietnam just to get that sandwich.

Bourdain is who really drove home for me the fact that life is too short to not eat well, but that you don't always have to pay a lot of money to do so. He also introduced me to other well known chefs that I've followed over the years.

We went to get oxtail from this little traditional old-school restaurant in Madrid on our honeymoon because he raved about it. Not only did we enjoy the hell out of it, but we literally had the same waiter that was shown in the episode :)

Listening to “Reborn” from the Kids See Ghosts album while reading tweets about Bourdain on my lunch break and now I’m bawling in my car. I don’t know how I’m going back into work.

I'm sure you'll be able to tough it out, LV

You don't remember that episode where he mercilessly slaughtered that cow or whatever with a wooden spear? It was gross. I hated him for it.

Anthony was a great dude. A total artist and legend in cuisine and I watched his TV shows religiously. His book Kitchen Confidential is one of the best books I’ve ever read as well.

I’ve been listening to a lot of Mark Lanegan today since he was his favorite singer.

How about knocking the drama off and paying the man some fucking respect?

You must've really liked him if you're trying to rally a message board of pearl jam "fans." You may have better luck on the bourdain forum.
And for the record, I dug him too
