Anthony Bourdain: The Amazing Traveler and Chef, You Will be Missed

Spread the love

I love the food channel. In fact, I’m the type that will eat a celery stick in front of the food channel in hopes that it will turn into whatever I’m watching. My favorite channel involves Anthony Bourdain. For those of you who are unfamiliar with him, he is an amazing chef and an aimless traveler. He takes his viewers to different places around the world to try different delicacies. He is known for the show “Parts of the Unknown” where we travel with him to partake in the journey of exploring unknown places, strange cultures, and unique food. It’s a brilliant way to broaden your horizons in the comfort of your own home. I know that I am a busy student/writer/entrepreneur/anything that I can be. There are times that I wish I can travel more, but don’t have the time. I am thankful for Anthony Bourdain because he takes my imagination to a whole new place.

He often makes fun of people going to Paris to stand on top of the Eiffel Tower. He claimed that it’s harmful to your soul. Don’t get me started about what he said about the selfie in front of the pyramids in Giza. As he always mentions “completely overrated.” His mission is to push people into exploring new places as well as the unknown. With Anthony, he does not stress about when and where to travel. He does not go online to research all the must-see places. He is more interested in getting the sense of the rhythm and smell and flavor of the place. His main goal is to go rogue and explore endlessly. He wants to find all the hidden gems and areas that people don’t talk about. There was one time in Tokyo, he refused to eat at any establishment that is English speaking. He spent hours searching for the hole in the wall joint where he can sit down and point at the guy next to him and have whatever he’s having. They gave him a big bowl of steaming noodle and pork, and that whole thing has changed his world. At one point, he even embark on the journey with President Obama to try something new.

When I read about the tragic news about his death in France, my heart pretty much shattered. I didn’t know that he suffered from depression and killed himself. I had always envied his lifestyle because he pretty much defines what it means to go to a new place. It is sad to see him go like this, but I will forever remember the lessons he taught me through his journey.
