Bourdain's death means loss of a voice for immigrant workers

11 June 2018

Anthony Bourdain, the chef who became a world-traveling storyteller, has died at age 61, according to CNN.

He is absolutely the last person in the world I would have ever dreamed would do something like this. Chef Sabyasachi Gorai of Lavaash says his first memory of Bourdain was on the cover of a book where he's standing buck naked with just the shin bone of beef/ beef shank. "Money beyond his wildest dreams", she continued.

She did, however, allow that Bourdain had been "in a dark mood those couple of days" without elaborating.

His 1999 New Yorker article, "Don't Eat Before Reading This", brought readers into the NY kitchens where Bourdain worked for years.

"All I can tell you is this: I got off of heroin in the 1980s". As part of the show, Bourdain ate grilled pork and noodles with President Barack Obama in Hanoi, examined the legacy of apartheid in Johannesburg, dug into pig ear sandwiches in the Mississippi Delta, and experienced the harvest festival, Gawai Dayak, in Borneo.

It was Bourdain's sudden death that has many of his fans reflecting on his earlier years - something the celebrity chef did himself when he visited MA in 2014 and explored the heroin epidemic in an episode of his show Parts Unknown. "He was effusive and happy about the Hong Kong episode that was all he could talk about weeks leading up to it, how it was like a high water mark for him", Reynolds said of the episode that his girlfriend Asia Argento directed. In a statement posted to Twitter, the actress, 42, remembered the celebrity chef as "brilliant" and her "protector". He used the belt from his bathrobe to hang himself.

"One time, when he filmed a TV show in Thailand, I was contacted to be his guide".

"I was surprised and sad when I heard about (Bourdain's) death", Nguyen Thi Nga, co-owner of Bun Cha Huong Lien, told AFP.

It was one of his last meals.

After Bourdain's death, Ms Hagerty thanked the chef for celebrating her work, rather than mocking her with the rest of the world.

"Some, of course, like to claim that Mexicans are stealing American jobs", Bourdain said in 2014. "We'll miss him", Obama tweeted.

"11 million people or whatever he's talking about right now, every restaurant in America would shut down", Bourdain said in an interview with SiriusXM radio.

Schroeder never met Anthony Bourdain until just four days before he died.
