Clearly, Anthony Bourdain was an influence on my life. This quote is nearly my whole mission statement. I hate feeling this way about a celebrity but this is just devastating. I looked up to him, his triumphs and his faults. Nobody knows better than I do that people die, but I wish he would have had a Sean Gaston, Joe Murphy, Timothy Grysko, or a Mariella to go to in his darkest hour. Here I am though, living a dream that was influenced by this celebrity I never met who made the ultimate choice.
I suppose all I can do is keep moving and keep in mind that he was such an inspiration for the path of life I am on. What a sad situation that really hits home for me. I hope the food you get in your next life is better than the one you had, but thank you for sharing Tabula in Bogatà with me. Still one of my greatest restaurant experiences I have had, and it was thanks to your suggestion. R.I.P Anthony Bourdain
This beautiful Beef Ossobuco from Tabula is for you!
