My favorite celebrity chef died this morning of an apparent suicide. I loved Anthony Bourdain and I wrote about it on my daily blog, Useless Things Need Love Too, today.
One thing that I didn’t mention in that blog post was how much Bourdain shaped what this blog/podcast/vlog has become. I wanted to do more interviews, bring awareness and point out my views on things. When I started out, I was just a pseudo food critic. I wasn’t very good at it. I wanted more and I want even more and much of that was how Bourdain did his shows. It was an awareness, an activist’s platform, a learning tool, a cooking show and a travel show. That’s what I want this to be more of. I don’t have the budget or means that he had but I want to make it the best I can.
But, to read more about what I said about him, please consider reading my post on the daily blog. You can read that HERE.
Thank you, Tony, for everything. Rest well, sir.
