Chefs around the world declared 25th June as #BourdainDay; it was also the day renowned chef Anthony Bourdain was born. If we could, we would celebrate his memory every day with the countless lessons he taught us along the way through his shows, Parts Unknown, Kitchen Confidential and No Reservations amongst many. Here's how the twitter paid this opinionated and world-traveled culinary legend a tribute.
It all started when his best friends, Eric Ripert & Jose Andres took to twitter on 24th June and asked his fans to remember Bourdain's legacy on his birthday, with a caption, "He loved adventure, good food, washing it down with good drink in the company of new & old friends. He hated pretense, jerks & those who abused others. Let's celebrate him tomorrow."

Think of her as a delicacy. She could be a red sauce penne pasta or refreshing strawberry smoothie. A little sweet, quite tangy and unapologetic on the palate.

Be it her blogs, articles, reviews or food shows; she promises a wholesome affair.
