Their are people that you look up to and influence your life. Many will also be the inner monologue telling what to do. As if they were part of you yet never have met.
To hear that Anthony Bourdain is no longer with us truly saddens me. He was an amazing person, Chef and definitely someone I aspired to be like.
I was just talking about the ideal job for me is to travel with Anthony Bourdain and eat and embrace different cultures. The way he would describe the food made you feel like you with him in a hole in the wall place he would love to find.
My condolences to his family. He will be missed in the culinary world.
