The world was shocked by the passing of Anthony Bourdain last week. Anthony Michael Bourdain was a celebrity chef, author, travel documentarian, and television personality who starred in programs focusing on the exploration of international culture, cuisine, and the human condition.

I read his book, Kitchen Confidential several years ago and it brought back many fun memories of working in the food service industry.

I just started watching his series, Parts Unknown on Netflix. He is an incredible storyteller. He connects with all different people and cultures through food. He says, "if you sit down with people and enjoy a meal you can connect on a different level," I agree.

Visit the world of Anthony Bourdain through his books and DVD series. Here are a few.
