I watched a couple of episodes of his show on Netflix and stopped because I rather listen to a non-chef talk about food than listen to a chef talk about non-food.  My favorite is Phil Rosenthal.

Some things are just not “understandable.  Depression is called a serious mental health condition and seems to be beyond what most of us can really comprehend.  Very sad!  Esp the effect on the loved ones!

Good topic @ASTRAEA

 

I do watch these shows on and off and have enjoyed watching both Andrew And Anthony Bourdain.  

 

It is is always a shock to me when this happens.  I cannot understand but feel very sorry for his families.

In an interview of Anthony Bourdain by Dave Davies, Bourdain said:
"Generally speaking, if it's, like, a street food stall that's busy, even if it looks dirty as hell, if there are a lot of locals there, they're eating, and they're happy, my crew will always eat at that place. You know, eating a Caesar salad at the major chain hotel in, you know, Central Africa or the Middle East, these are - that's where you run into trouble stomach-wise, generally."

Bourdain's ability to correlate a food's origin with the culture that originated it was a skill that no other food celebrity had. That is what made his shows so interesting and sometimes controversial.

 

It is such a shock because he had been through so much strife in his early life like addiction to heroin and beat the addiction. For him to be as successful as he was was almost a miracle.

 

But, as all the reporters are reporting this morning, depression doesn't care about success, demographics, income or prior issues.

Travel & Food Shows .. Anthony Bourdain dead at 61

I always preferred Andrew Zimmern over Anthony Bourdain, when it came to travel/food series .. but I was shocked to read that Bourdain commit suicide.

 

Are you a fan of these types of shows .. have a favorite TV host?
