More Bourdain

The Bourdain suicide really has felt like a wallop. It’s OK to be sad, but then buck-up, Private! There’s much work still to be done!

What’s weird to us is normal to someone else, and isn’t that really what makes this adventure worth taking? If there is a single thing that we can take from Bourdain it is that moderation is for monks, and if you want to taste the spice of life, open wide and take a big bite. Savor it. Take another bite. And another.

Life is so delicious. Set a big table, invite your friends and family to join you. Talk to one another, share stories, have seconds. Make your life a glorious dinner party with the people you love.

So, be brave and good and kind, Scissorheads. The world needs more Bourdains not fewer. Take him as inspiration and as a light: explore your world with an appetite and an infectious curiosity; celebrate our differences as much as we celebrate our common humanity.

It goes so fast, eat it up and lick your plates. That is what Bourdain would want.

    Very wise advice.

    Also don’t be afraid to try a new recipe, especially something unknown.

    My favorite Bourdain TV moment was his trip to my beloved Bronx, especially his visit to a classic cuchifritos place. For the record, I am a huge fan of morcilla, which is the Latin version of boudin noir, which was my favorite thing on the menu at Les Halles.
