Anthony Bourdain RIP

It's many years now since I read 'Kitchen Confidential' by Anthony Bourdain. It described life in kitchens, and exposed how they worked, and introduced the underbelly of life for many chefs.
He sadly took his own life earlier this week.
A nice piece by Tony Quartaro on his work and legacy.
He describes him as a 'culinary geographer' which considering his travelling and documentary work which introduced many to the food cultures of those countries is certainly true.

I would say he was definitely a cultural geographer too as a result of that.
And this was a super tribute...

Also good to see Jamie Oliver dedicating a recipe to him on Saturday Kitchen this morning...
