Alton Brown's Take On Anthony Bourdain's Legacy
Anthony Bourdain, also known as "the Elvis of bad boy chefs," per Smithsonians was known to dish out the harshest criticisms to famous Food Network names like Guy Fieri, Sandra Lee, and Rachael Ray. Fellow TV star Alton Brown, however, escaped Bourdain's burn and following the "No Reservations" star's death, Brown was asked what Bourdain's legacy would be.
Brown remarked that Bourdain’s legacy would be how the late chef taught his fans "how to see and feel other people and other cultures," connecting the world through the lens of food. Brown referred to Tony (as his friends called him) as a "cultural anthropologist," an adept traveler who made the big world cozy, and a "fantastic" person who will continue to be missed.
Bourdain's legacy includes hours of film from his multiple series, like "No Reservations" and "Parts Unknown," not to mention writing credits for programs like HBO's "Treme." Bourdain's travels took us to places we may never be able to see firsthand, teaching lessons about our similarities that shall linger on.
