Anthony Bourdain lived many lives in his too-brief 61 years on this planet.
Like Florine Mark before her, Valerie Bertinelli is on my list. It's an exclusive list of two people—well, it used to be three but Kesha has redeemed herself in my eyes. Also like Florine, Valerie has no idea who I am and doesn't care that I'm unhappy with her.
There are certain foods that people don't like after tasting them. There are some foods people don't like because of the way they look. There are some foods people don't like because of the way they smell. Then there are some foods people refuse to eat because they were forced to eat so much of it when they were young. They vowed to never eat that food again when they grew up and left their childhood home. They said when they make their own money, they would eat what they wanted and not be forced to eat what they didn't like. Many of those people have kept the promise they made to themselves long ago and still refuse to eat certain foods today.

Today, I learned about the passing of Anthony Bourdain. I didn’t know him personally. I’m not going to gush about what a great guy he was and how unbelievably sad his passing is. I knew his TV personality. Undoubtedly, it contained at least some trace of the real man, but I can’t attest to that. And yes, it is unbelievably tragic.

I can’t offer a glimpse into the mind or life of a man I’d never met and now, sadly never will. What I can do is explain how his life and what I was exposed to through him has changed me. How his shows changed my entire way of thinking about food and culture, and the way they are intertwined.
