    I know this is not a vape related discussion. And I expect class wife to place it appropriately. In a place where can be seen. If any of you have looked at my profile, I am a chef from Clearwater Florida. As such I mourn the death my colleague Anthony Bourdain. As a chef he inspired me through his books and media experiences to continue within my profession. He will be missed by myself as well as many others. If there are any interested parties I suggest you read his book, "Kitchen Confodential". It gives a solid insight to what happens in the " back of the house". Anyways I do not believe the circumstances as to his death. He was loved and will be missed by perhaps thousands. Thank you for allowing this post. God bless, and enjoy a joy-filled life.

    I really enjoyed watching his show. Considering all the personalities that can be viewed on television, he was one that I would have loved to call a friend of mine. He was so down to earth and seemed to have a natural interest in people in general. Without knowing him, I mourn his passing like he was a friend and I didn't really know him.

    His sudden unexpected passing goes to show we never know what hidden demons each of us must deal with personally. I heard that he kicked a ...... addiction early in his career, and often remarked that he felt like he didn't deserve the life he had. Most cases of suicide are unexpected. RIP.

    I have not read his book and will see if it is available at the library.

    My husband was a chef and i was a baker and pastry chef. We had occasion to spend time with Mr Bourdain and neither of us can accept the story put out explaining his death. He will be sorely missed whether you knew him personally or not. He had a way of making strangers feel they had known him for years. We smell something fishy and its not in the menu. RIP

    I met him at a Borders book store when he signed my copy of Kitchen Confidential. His carisma and encourgment in my career made me feel as though I knew him personally. I mourn him and envy you for having a personal relationship with him. Thank you and God bless.

    He will be sorely missed. I would have loved to hang with him one night. Have a beer and some food would have been great.

    Unfortunately his book will probably not be available in this circumstance. It probably been sold out within minutes of this terrible news. Bet Amazon is back ordered. I am greatfull and will cherish my signed copy. It has become one of my most apreciated posetions. Love to all and God bless.

    I honestly don't know who he is but my respects and condolences to his family, and condolences to those who admire him as well. It's always difficult to lose those you look up to..

    Thank you as an old school chef he was like a hero to me. What all chefs and aspiring chefs want to be like him. We can not help but look up to him as he (like me) started at the bottom (dish washer) and worked their way up. Thank you. My most sincerest condolences to his family. You are missed.

    One of my local libraries had a couple of his books available. I borrowed "Kitchen Confidential". Only a few chapters in and its an extremely interesting read.

    It is pretty raw. A genuine look in to the going on in the back the house at every resteraunt. As a vateran myself it is accurate.
