When world-renowned chef and travel documentarian Anthony Bourdain died in 2018, he left behind a remarkable legacy of a life well-lived and a life well-loved. The man dedicated his life to his love of travelling and cuisine and combined the two to remarkable effect. Now the co-author on many of his literary escapades Laurie Woolever has lovingly put together a tribute to the man, Bourdain: In Stories – a collection of stories from those who knew him closest and loved him the most.
The passion in this book says everything you need to know about Bourdain, with input from people who worked with him in his early days, fellow celebrity chefs such as Nigella Lawson to his daughter, brother and closest friends. Bourdain: In Stories touches on all aspects of his life, including his early days in New York and the drug-filled excess of the 1980s through to the creation of his game-changing memoir Kitchen Confidential – all in incredible detail complete with glossy photos to help paint the picture. It’s a touching, humorous, sometimes poignant but ultimately, a very fitting tribute to a personality whose warmth was felt by so many people from all walks of life.
