Everything We Know About The Upcoming Anthony Bourdain Documentary

Anthony Bourdain was a celebrity chef who was unlike any other. He loved to travel and relished the opportunity to take a deep dive into other cultures — exploring cuisines from different corners of the world and intersecting with new people and traditions (via Delish.) The best part? From the first time he daringly tasted oysters on a childhood trip to France, he never shied away from new culinary experiences. Bourdain later worked as a cook in seafood restaurants in Massachusetts, which motivated him to join the industry.

It took a few years and lots of professional experience, but Anthony Bourdain earned his status as a culinary hero. He was known for hosting TV shows like "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" and "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown." As per Biography, the chef was also a revered author who gave his fans bestsellers like "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly." Sadly, Bourdain died by suicide in 2018, with his many fans and fellow chefs mourning the loss.

Bourdain's fans still miss and remember the chef fondly, so it was welcome news that his posthumous book, "World Travel: An Irreverent Guide," written in collaboration with Laurie Woolever, was released in April. Additionally, a documentary based on Bourdain's life is also set to be released this July (via Delish.)

What can fans expect from the film? Well, it's supposed to give them a glimpse into the "uncommon life of the late storyteller, explorer, and chef, Anthony Bourdain," according to a statement from HBO Max. According to Screenrant, the movie will likely offer a closer look at Bourdain's diverse life experiences. The film's director, Neville, has given the world documentary films such as the Oscar-winning film, "20 Feet From Stardom" and "Won't You Be My Neighbor."
