People Are Sharing Their Favorite Memories Of Anthony Bourdain On Twitter. Here's Why

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain was impressive in every sense of the word. He travelled the world, did a deep dive into different cultures, and introduced his viewers to dishes from countless parts of the world with his popular TV shows like "Parts Unknown." What made Bourdain different from everyone else was that he was hungry to explore and push himself out of his comfort zone in every way possible. He redefined what it means to be a celebrity chef and left the comfort of familiar spaces to wander into uncharted territory. Sadly, the chef died by suicide in 2018, leaving many of his fans gutted.

In a tribute to the late chef, The New York Times mentioned that Bourdain was a legend who really gave readers a glimpse into what life is like in a professional kitchen with his book, "Kitchen Confidential," shedding light on an industry that was not truly appreciated or understood. Bourdain was passionate about new experiences, to say the least. He wouldn't have it any other way. He said, "I know what I want. I want it all. I want to try everything once" (via Parade). Bourdain was referring to the importance of trying new dishes far from one's culture and giving everything a shot, at least once.

Bourdain made an obvious impact on fans across the globe, and now many are taking to Twitter to remember the late chef once again.
