    A recent interview;




    I've just watched this through twice and can see how he may well have decided it was time to go.
    An insightful interview with remarkable honesty and depth on his part.

    RIP Anthony Bourdain. Through his cooking/travel shows the viewer got a genuine feel for the local cuisine and the human condition. The emotional experience could widely vary from one show to another. Many times after viewing his shows, I found myself reflecting on my own life experiences.

    One of my favorite shows is I believe Anthony is off the Amalfi Coast and the locals take him spear fishing. Snorkeling Anthony is soon bombarded by frozen fish being thrown overboard by his local host.

    Not a celebrity, but I get that...this has become a soul destroying society. Every aspect of life financialized. And it's not just confined to the US.

    Was that the one on No Reservations where he had dinner with the family of the man who lost an arm and a leg to an unexploded American bomb dropped 30 years previous?

    RIP Anthony Bourdain...loved your shows.

    ^ saw that one in Laos

    Not many 'superstar' chefs have the balls to get with the locals and get their hands dirty, so to speak. Floyd did it in the golden triangle, and even dressed like them.

    Bourdain made himself a likeable guy who didn't look down on people in those far flung places. Not sure what exact episode it was when he did a few shots of the snake blood

    The likes of Gordon "l'm can't cook Thai to save my life" Ramsay or Rick "l'm a rich smug bastard" Stein doing stuff like that are zero.

    I bet they were first on twitter with their tributes to a man they never knew or met
