To A True Freedom Fighter. You Are Dearly Missed.

I have been considering writing a piece on my favorite activist, writer, and food critics of all time, but haven’t been able to spill any ink on the subject until now. The shock of Anthony Bourdain’s passing was too fresh. I’ve written about him in the past for venues like Authors’ Publish Magazine, hand-sold his books at independent bookstores, and caught glimpses of him and his entourage in and around San Francisco.

Waking up this morning with multiple writing deadlines due I thought of Anthony. With a heavy heart, I reached for a pen. What could I possibly write that hasn’t already been said on an iconoclast? I can only speak to my personal experience with his work and what it meant to me as a writer, traveler, and lover of food and wine that tells a story. What better platform than the blog I write for, Vinformant? It’s the best-connected wine distributor nestled in the Napa Valley region.

Passionate food and wine connoisseurs are usually asked, “What was the pairing and/or texture flavor combination that got you hooked?” I used to think rare food and wine were reserved for the snobbish and wealthy. It wasn’t until I began following Bourdain I realized there is a culinary underbelly humanizing all races, classes, and belief systems.

From his modern noir mystery novel, Bone In The Throat serving up gangster tartare in a Mafia-run restaurant to his memoir, Kitchen Confidential deconstructing restaurant kitchens while mirroring George Orwells’, Down and Out in Paris and London he never disappointed. He left us too soon, but we still have his legacy told in a fantastic and endlessly fascinating body of work.

He gave voices to the voiceless and reminded us to find pleasure in the journey. Best of all, Anthony Bourdain insisted it’s not all wine pairings and flavor combinations, but the fact food and wine tell a story. He dug deep down into its humanity and made no apologies. There is not one corner of the world where he is not missed.

I figure, we should spend a significant measure trade on our understudies out light of the way that simply incredible understudies can make our existence made later on and understudies can get the positive change the world too. I think, we need to contribute money for the difference in the understudies.
