Anthony Bourdain, an inspiration to all of us


June 8, 2018

“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life—and travel—leaves marks on you.”

Anthony Bourdain definitely left his mark on our world. One of the greatest chefs and storyteller has inspired an entire generation. Definitely not your average TV host, the exuberant and enthusiastic chef opened the beauty of the world of food and different cultures to all of us. 

Through his first book, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, to the award-winning travel show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, he’s left discovering the culinary world saddened as his influential and curious personality had us travel the world with him one dish at a time. 

Our hearts are heavy today. All our thoughts at Culinary Institute Lenôtre to his family and friends.
