Figuras del espectáculo reaccionaron con impacto ante el suicidio del famoso chef.

Anthony Bourdain era una verdadera estrella del rock. Gracias a un sentido de irreverencia, una profunda honestidad y un deseo de abrir el mundo a experiencias culinarias novedosas y arriesgadas, el chef y exitoso conductor de CNN se separó del resto de la parrilla de «cocineros famosos» en Estados Unidos

Su partida a los 61 años de edad ha sido tomada con impacto y dolor por quienes lo conocían, destacando que además de ser una figura pública carismática, Bourdain era una persona de corazón generoso.

Desde la música hasta el cine y la TV han reaccionado ante la trágica muerte de Bourdain, despidiendo un hombre fundamental en la cultura pop moderna…

reposted: @questlovesfood Just saw the news this morning about Anthony Bourdain’s passing. I have so many thoughts about him—memories, emotions, and unanswered questions—that right now it’s sort of a jumble. I feel so thankful for him to introducing me to a world I never knew, the world of food and especially food around the world. It was through Anthony that I learned about the sushi master Jiro Ono was and that recommendation (seeing the Jiro doc & making a pilgrimage to Tokyo by any means necessary) singlehandedly changed the course of my professional and creative life. Anthony also believed, and talked often, about how all forms of creativity were connected: how chefs and drummers and comedians and actors and directors and painters all drew on the same well of thoughts and emotions. That feeling stuck with me. Watching him take trips to faraway lands to get a taste of heaven (and, just as often, to show how life on earth can be hell for people under the thumb of cruel governments or oppressive poverty) was the equivalent of my many trips to obscure record shops continents away. Lastly I’ll miss our endless banter about the merits (or lack therof) of Yacht Rock. Anthony came on Fallon often, and every time he liked to warn me that his walk-on music better have “some umph to it.” He wanted power and attitude. I’d agree with him, and then I’d play another Billy Joel song, which infuriated him. A few years back, to thank him for writing the foreword to my book, I started the ultimate troll project, though I never got to give it to him. We had an “argument” over Herb Alpert’s “Route 101”: I made the case that the song’s good-feeling/good-time vibe couldn’t be denied, and he made the case that he denied it, and the more heated the argument got the more we laughed. I told him imma make him the mother of smooth-pop playlists and then he would see the light. I’m finishing that playlist, and when I do, I’ll name it after him, just so I can imagine that laugh of his.
