Anthony Bourdain Talks Harvey Weinstein, Clintons in Final Interview | Consequence of Sound
The late chef and author also took Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders fans to task
It’s been just over a month since the suicide of author, chef, and TV personality Anthony Bourdain. One of his final interviews, an in-depth discussion with Maria Bustillos of the newly-launched blockchain-based web magazine Popula, was conducted back in February and has just been published. The conversation covered a wide array of subjects, with Bourdain giving some characteristically blunt comments about many sociopolitical matters.
Prior to his death, Bourdain was dating Asia Argento, one of the women at the center of the New York Times article that exposed Harvey Weinstein. As such, Bourdain was an outspoken supporter of the #MeToo movement and a staunch opponent of Weinstein. While he and Bustillos were discussing how the only way to stop the immoral acts of powerful people is to publicly humiliate them, Bourdain imagined the former A-list producer forced to eat at a low-rent restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was his way of explaining that while he’d love “to see him, you know beaten to death in his cell,” it’s actually more satisfying to watch horrible individuals suffer the consequences.

eat well, travel often | shopmidnightrider: “Travel isn’t always pretty....
“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully you leave something good behind.” Anthony Bourdain ( June 25th 1956 - June 8th 2018 )

Anthony Bourdain Wrote a Letter to Josh Homme’s Daughter | Consequence of Sound
Homme's daughter became upset after seeing Bourdain break her father's guitar on an episode of No Reservations, prompting Bourdain to write her an apology
Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has shared a letter written by Anthony Bourdain to Homme’s daughter, Camile. As Homme tells it, his daughter became upset after seeing Bourdain break her a guitar during a 2011 episode of No Reservations profiling Homme. After hearing of Camile’s reaction, Bourdain wrote a letter to assure her that the broken guitar was a prop and not one actually belonging to her father.
“That this was in fact a not so subtle reference to the early works of John Landis and John Belushi is something you could hardly have been expected to know, Animal House having been released long before you were born, and I apologize,” Bourdain wrote. Had Bourdain actually broken Homme’s guitar, “Daddy would have been really angry… and as he is a large man, I strongly suspect I would not still be here to write this letter,” he added.

We Need to Talk About Anthony Bourdain | Food & Wine
As I see it, you either have to deal with the slightly uncomfortable situation of having your line cook cry in front of you, or you cry at their funeral. I'm sorry to make it sound that dire, but it is.
Chefs die all the time, and no one talks about it. There are a million reasons for this, but the thing is that it happens constantly and it's only spoken of in hushed tones so no one gets upset. Other people's feelings are awkward, and we as a culture are exceptionally crappy at talking about them. We're all afraid of making things worse, or seeing someone in a different way, or having them see us in a vulnerable state. But as I see it, you either have to deal with the slightly uncomfortable situation of having your line cook cry in front of you, or you cry at their funeral. I'm sorry to make it sound that dire, but it is. Especially today.
Anthony Bourdain killed himself. I don't know why. Even if I did, it wouldn't matter, because it cannot be undone or make anyone feel any better. There was absolutely no one else in the world like him, and the constant refrain I heard from chefs, writers, and food lovers I met through my work as a journalist was, "I want to be Anthony Bourdain."

Anthony Bourdain, Renegade Chef Who Reported From the World’s Tables, Is Dead at 61 - The New York Times
Anthony Bourdain, whose darkly funny memoir about life in New York City restaurant kitchens made him a celebrity chef and touched off his second career as a journalist, food expert and social activist, was found dead on Friday in his hotel room in France. He was 61.
His death was being treated as a suicide. Christian de Rocquigny du Fayel, the prosecutor for the city of Colmar, in the Alsace region near where Mr. Bourdain was found, said the death was by hanging. “At this stage, we have no reason to suspect foul play,” he said.

Anthony Bourdain: America’s Ambassador to the World | Editorials | Consequence of Sound
A tribute to a man who followed fate and became America's favorite traveler
Some men get a haircut in high school and just stick with it until the day they lose it all. It’s a metaphor for how the male of the species lives his life post-college: stuck in his ways, unable to change with the times, wondering out loud when things will go back to what they perceive as “normal.” Anthony Bourdain was a man that the world saw change and grow throughout the years, from his first New Yorker piece to his recent alignment with the #MeToo movement. Bourdain always kept it real, but his reality was perpetually changing.

The world woke up to sad news today when we all learned of the death of Anthony Bourdain, the beloved TV personality, chef, and author. The 61-year-old died of an apparent suicide in France while filming an episode of his CNN show Parts Unknown.

Goodbye Anthony Bourdain – Om on Tech
It has been six days since I got back from Iceland. And every single day has been spent in bed – dealing with conjunctivitis, cold, cough and fever. Despite all precautions, all sort of vitamins and even getting decent sleep. And yet, it has been a rough few days. Even though I have tried to keep up with work — thanks to Zoom video conference, I have fallen behind on my emails.
And if that was not enough, I have been devastated by the news of the suicide of Kate Spade, a designer who works were appreciated by millions of women around the world. But today, my world got a little darker. Anthony Bourdain, a chef and a food journalist I admired deeply committed suicide in France. His show Parts Unknown was the only show worth watching on CNN. I loved his previous travel shows as well.

What Anthony Bourdain Understood About Cities - CityLab
The work of the acclaimed chef and writer, who has died at 61, provides a model for a truly inclusive urbanism based on the creativity of all human beings.
Anthony Bourdain is one of the two people who have most inspired my work on cities and urbanism. Where Jane Jacobs helped define my intellectual agenda, it was Bourdain, who died on Friday morning at age 61, who motivated me to spread the message of cities and urbanism broadly.
A brilliant chef-turned-writer-turned-TV-star who was as good or better on camera as he was on the page, most people saw him as a chronicler of food and culture. But I always saw him as a chronicler of cities, and a truly great urbanist. He may not have seen himself that way—in recent years he ceased to refer to himself as a chef or a journalist, so single-minded was he as a traveler and epicurean—but it’s a central part of his work and legacy.

Remembering Anthony Bourdain, Dead at 61 - The Atlantic
The chef and writer, who died at 61, changed the way we think about restaurant kitchens and the people who work within them.
What made Anthony Bourdain distinct as a writer was what made him a great television personality: He unprettified reality and found a deeper truth in the lives of people who made food. He did not so much glorify the hot line as much as talk about the grit it took to work and live there, the strangely insulated and relatively safe world it became for people who had often grown up in unsafe worlds, the barracks mentality that fostered its own language and code of behavior.

Anthony Bourdain modeled how to be an American abroad.
Anthony Bourdain modeled how to be an American abroad.
Anthony Bourdain very nearly ate his first meal in Japan at a Starbucks. As he recounts in Kitchen Confidential, the 2000 memoir that made him a celebrity, he had been dispatched in 1998 by the owners of Les Halles, the New York restaurant where he was executive chef, to open a Tokyo branch. Hungover and bleary-eyed at 5 a.m., the man who would one day preach the gospel of culinary adventurism—but at the time had almost no experience with international travel—“didn’t have the nerve” to go into a noodle shop, being “acutely aware of how freakish and un-Japanese I looked.” He writes, “The prospect of pushing aside the banner to one of these places, sliding back the door and stepping inside, then squeezing on to a stool at a packed counter and trying to figure out how and what to order was a little frightening.” Thankfully for him—and the rest of us—fortified by a latte, he summoned the nerve to go out and slurp down some soba.

Anthony Bourdain Dies By Suicide: His Best Music Moments - Stereogum
This morning brings the impossibly sad news that Anthony Bourdain, the near-universally beloved celebrity chef and TV host, has died. CNN reports that Bourdain died via suicide in France, where he was filming an episode of his show Parts Unknown. His friend Eric Ripert, a French chef, found him unresponsive in his hotel room this morning. Bourdain was 61.
Bourdain was born in New York and grew up in New Jersey. After dropping out of Vassar, he became a chef, coming up in New York’s restaurant scene. Bourdain became famous after he turned his 1999 New Yorker article “Don’t Eat Before Reading This” into the bestselling 2000 memoir Kitchen Confidential: Adventures In The Culinary Underbelly. From there, Bourdain hosted the TV shows A Cook’s Tour, No Reservations, and Parts Unknown, venturing around the world to speak with locals and to try the different kids of food, always doing whatever he could to show local cultures on entirely human terms.

Anthony Bourdain’s Journey Deep Into the Heart of Trump Country: ‘I Was Utterly Disarmed’
The ‘Parts Unknown’ host discusses his upcoming West Virginia episode, why he won’t be filming in Russia and Turkey anymore, and how Trump is going to ‘come crashing down.’
“It was never really about food,” Anthony Bourdain says of his CNN series Parts Unknown. 
For Bourdain, his focus began to shift from the culinary to the cultural in July 2006, when he and his crew found themselves trapped in Beirut during the Second Lebanon War, a 34-day military conflict between the Israel Defense Forces and Iran-funded Hezbollah terrorists. The second-season finale to No Reservations, the previous iteration of Parts Unknown, documented that chaotic, war-torn week in Beirut, and earned an Emmy nomination.

The Seattle Mystery Anthony Bourdain Missed on CNN's Parts Unknown
D.B. Cooper's unsolved caper would've been right up the CNN host's outlaw alley.
D.B. Cooper was never found after jumping out of a plane between Seattle and Portland.
Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown episode on Seattle that aired last sunday dwelled on the idea of serial killers, but absent were other regional enigmas that capture the public’s imagination: Bigfoot and D.B. Cooper.
Cooper, you would think, might appeal to Bourdain who has a taste for the dark side and outlaw behavior.
In 2016, the FBI said it had ended its active search for Cooper, who hijacked a commercial jetliner on Thanksgiving eve in 1971 for ransom. He jumped from the plane with $200,000 in loot and a parachute into the woods between Seattle and Portland. Whether he survived is unknown, though in 1980 some of his money—still as bundled when given to the hijacker—was recovered from the bank of the Columbia River.

Seattle through Anthony Bourdain's eyes - seattlepi.com
...But none of those are the main reasons he came back to Seattle.
"I wanted to do an hour of television absolutely saturated with, scored by, and featuring Mark Lanegan and his music. I wanted to hear some of my favorites played over wide shots of the Puget Sound. I wanted to smoke weed legally, listening to his songs. And I wanted every single person who watches my show and isn't already a fan of his to experience his music," Bourdain wrote on why he decided to film here.
And in his notes he had one more, non-Seattle-native to thank.
"I want to thank and acknowledge the great filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson here. We shamelessly ripped off a particularly beautiful concept from his film 'Magnolia' for the final sequence of the show. It worked out so well the first time—and, as you will see, it works powerfully again."...

What Anthony Bourdain Left Out of the Seattle Parts Unknown Episode - Slog - The Stranger
There was plenty to hate in the recent Seattle episode of Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown. The episode is essentially about the clash between old and new, art and tech, NIMBY and YIMBY, which can be an interesting (if plenty covered) conflict. But the show had some very strange elements. The singalong at the end was particularly cringe-worthy, when producers forced a bunch of unknown-elsewhere and kind-of-known-here locals like John Criscitello and Knute Berger to lip sync, straight-faced, over a Mark Lanegan song. Lanegan, the frontman for the grunge-era band Screaming Trees, was apparently the reason Bourdain, who is a fan, decided to come to Seattle in the first place, even though Lanegan has actually lived in LA for the past 20 years. Not that this stops him from talking about the city like he knows what the fuck is up.

Viewers are treated to live concert footage of the artist, and Bourdain interviews him, along with tour guitarist Jeff Fielder, at Ocho tapas bar...
...WTF moments of the week
Parts Unknown: Seattle was one of the wackier installments of season 10, with many a WTF moments. Take your pick between Bourdain's trial session with virtual reality porn (viewer discretion definitely advised), or the musical that closed the episode—no, we're not kidding. Set to a live performance from Mark Lanegan Band's "Strange Religion," the show's interviewees were filmed all around Seattle, lip-syncing the lyrics. It was very Broadway-esque (and not your typical Bourdain).

All the Places Anthony Bourdain Went While He Was in Seattle | Travel + Leisure
Anthony Bourdain's “Parts Unknown” is heading to Seattle on Sunday, with a new episode that dives into the culture of the unique city in Washington state — and highlights local places to eat that are off the beaten tourist path.
As The Seattle Times reported, Bourdain spends much of the episode musing about how much Seattle has changed over the years (of course, railing against “tech bros”) and naturally partaking of some legal marijuana.
But back to the food: Bourdain stopped at some very appetizing eateries.
He stopped at the Pacific Inn Pub for some fish and chips; Revel for pork belly-kimchi pancakes, short-rib dumplings, and a short-rib rice bowl, and noodles with flat-iron steak; and Taylor Shellfish for fried smelts (that’s also a fish), oysters, and Dungeness crab.
He also stopped by a few key bars and restaurants like a Middle Eastern eatery called Mamnoon, a tapas bar called Ocho, and a hip bar called the Shanghai Room that The Seattle Times called the “best kept secret in Seattle.” Well, not anymore. Bourdain has unearthed it.
Bourdain also made some trips to see food scientist Nathan Myhrvold at his Modernist Cuisine lab and rode the ferry to Vashon Island for a clambake. If you’re wondering at this point if you can get quality seafood in Seattle, wonder no longer.
The episode of “Parts Unknown” airs on on CNN on Sunday, November 19, at 9 p.m.

Bourdain’s field notes: Seattle – Explore Parts Unknown
...I was driving across the American desert a few years back with my friend Josh Homme, and he played me a few songs by Mark Lanegan. I was immediately inhabited by his voice, his lyrics, the experience of his songs—the darkness, pain, and longing. I went back and listened to nearly everything he’d done to date with his ’90s band, Screaming Trees; with Josh and Queens of the Stone Age; his incredible solo stuff; his many collaborations with an astonishingly diverse spectrum of brilliant musicians. I was mesmerized.
When I moved over to CNN and was looking for music for the opening title of Parts Unknown, I called Josh with an idea for a song: something that started out filled with hope and wonder but segued ominously into darkness and dread. A “happy” song, like Joey Ramone’s version of “It’s a Wonderful World,” but more explicit in its anticipation of something … random … and awful. Josh responded with one word: “Lanegan.”
So that’s Josh Homme and Mark Lanegan who wrote and performed our title track, just in case you didn’t know...

Bourdain’s Seattle Episode of ‘Parts Unknown,’ Mapped
The restaurants, bars, and even dispensary TV host Anthony Bourdain visited while he was in town
Anthony Bourdain has long loved Seattle: Four years ago, the food celebrity toured the Emerald City and declared that it had “one of the best and most interesting food scenes in America” on the final season of his TV show The Layover. Last fall, Bourdain returned in the penultimate episode of CNN’s Parts Unknown, Season 10, and despite complaints about tech bros, he made a similarly bold proclamation about Seattle: “It’s pretty damn awesome,” Bourdain said. “Way ahead of the rest of the country in unbridled enthusiasm for good ingredients and good stuff.”
Bourdain visited Modernist Cuisine’s Bread Lab to sample a new project, Vashon Island for an old-school clambake with the team behind Chefsteps, and the family-run Hollingsworth Cannabis Company, suggesting, “What [Seattle’s] always been and continues to be is a magnet for creators to come experiment and to make their own.” Here for posterity, in order of appearance, is a guide to the seven Eater-relevant places, from revered restaurants to dive bars to a dispensary, that Bourdain patronized on his most recent trip to Seattle.

The world-famous chef and host of 'Parts Unknown' runs down the tunes that changed his life
Anthony Bourdain — the notoriously snarky chef, writer, and world traveler — is returning to CNN on April 13th with a new season of Parts Unknown, where he will continue to excavate local gastronomy in global locales, from street food in the Punjab to quotidian grub amidst the drug wars in Mexico. “We try to make each episode look as different as possible, with different physical cinematography," Bourdain says. "We'll use different equipment, different lenses, a different sort of reference of films - specifically tailored to each episode. We want each episode to look and feel different than the one before, and we want those episodes to sound different as well.”...
..."Personality Crisis," The New York Dolls
“An answered prayer. The antidote to all the lousy music of the era. Loud, unapologetically sloppy. Johnny Thunders guitar made life worth living again and gave permission to everything good that followed, like New York punk. Joyously nihilistic.”

Foodie, travel guru and journalist Anthony Bourdain kept the company of some fine rock stars on his (now canceled) TV show “No Reservations,” including the Black Keys and Sleigh Bells.
But Bourdain and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme really, really like hanging out. Homme appeared on “No Reservations” twice, a Christmas special and an episode where the two ate Tex-Mex, got drunk, and recorded a song documenting Bourdain’s time in Southern California. So what’s Bourdain to do but of course invite Homme, along with Mark Lanegan, to record the theme song for his new show on CNN, “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.”

Josh Homme and Mark Lanegan wrote theme music for new Anthony Bourdain show | Consequence of Sound
Anthony Bourdain’s broke bread with plenty of rock stars on his television program No Reservations (The Black Keys, Neon Indian, and Sleigh Bells, just to name a few), but his relationship with Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme extends far beyond a television cameo. Homme appeared on No Reservation twice, including one epic episode which saw them eat Tex-Mex, get drunk off tequila, and record a song documenting Bourdain’s time in SoCal’s High Desert. It seems their time together left such a lasting mark on Bourdain that he tapped Homme and Mark Lanegan to record a theme for his new CNN program, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.
Ever the incredible wordsmith, Bourdain said in a statement: “When you hear the new title music for Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown your head will explode, leaving only a smoking stump. When we heard what (Homme and Lanegan) had come up with, there was weeping and jaw-droppage.”
The first episode of Parts Unknown aired last night, and the replay is streaming in full on CNN’s website (scroll to the :50 mark to hear the theme song).

Josh Homme and Mark Lanegan Share Sha-La-La-ing Anthony Bourdain Theme Song | SPIN
Duo's latest Bourdain ditty airs on new CNN show
Queens of the Stone Age have a long history of collaborations with Anthony Bourdain. SPIN once even interviewed the TV chef about it. QOTSA, of course, are getting set to release new album …Like Clockwork on June 4 via Matador Records, and they’ve already unveiled muscular single “My God Is the Sun.” The record’s many guests include returning QOTSA hand (and former Screaming Trees belter) Mark Lanegan. Now, as Antiquiet points out, QOTSA main man Josh Homme has teamed up with Lanegan to record the theme song for Bourdain’s new CNN show Parts Unknown.
The results are definitely theme-song-y, with ample sha-la-las. But hearing Homme and Lanegan trade gravelly croons and big-room howls over sweaty guitars is still a treat. “I took a walk through this beautiful world / Felt the cool rain on my shoulder,” the two sing. The episode is set in Myanmar, also the source of Fall Out Boy’s new album cover art, and Bourdain treats the southeast Asian nation’s troubled history with appropriate seriousness and respect.
Watch over at CNN by fast-forwarding to the 50-second mark.

Hear Josh Homme & Mark Lanegan’s Theme For Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown - Stereogum
Anthony Bourdain and Josh Homme have been buds at least since Queens Of The Stones Age played the No Reservations holiday episode back in 2007. And now, with a new QOTSA album imminent and a new Bourdain series underway, the two are officially working together. Homme and occasional QOTSA member Mark Lanegan recorded a theme song for Bourdain’s series, Parts Unknown, which premiered last night. It’s only 40 seconds long, but it’s a pretty terrific 40 seconds of music; of all Homme’s many collaborators, I don’t think any does more to raise the material than Lanegan (and vice-versa: Lanegan’s vocals rarely hit harder than they do in QOTSA’s songs). The “sha-la-la” section at the end is especially great. Check it out here, in the context of the full episode of Parts Unknown, which is streaming on CNN.com; scroll to the :50 mark to hear it.

A Q&A with rock god Mark Lanegan – Explore Parts Unknown
It was Mark Lanegan’s music that drew Anthony Bourdain to Seattle in the first place. So it’s only natural that we asked another of Bourdain’s favorite music heads, Mike Ruffino (Parts Unknown composer and author of the epic punk memoir “Adios, Motherf***er: A Gentleman’s Progress Through Rock and Roll)” to interview Lanegan about life, Los Angeles, and touring. Here’s their phone conversation, from the road in Europe, in full, with tunes from the episode. 
Mike Ruffino: You’re in Europe.
Mark Lanegan: Yeah. Italy, a hotel, somewhere near Venice. Just passing through, coming from Switzerland, someplace that started with a “K”. Maybe. I really don’t know where I was yesterday.

SWEETBITTER
By Stephanie Danler
356 pp. Alfred A. Knopf. $25.
Ever since Anthony Bourdain, our tribal king, published his peerless “Kitchen Confidential” in 2000, we, the demimonde of Professional Restaurant, have glutted the bookstores with more accountings of ourselves and our work than anyone could possibly wish to read. The taco truck chef, the French chef, the drug-addicted chef, the Korean-American chef, the reluctant chef (ahem), the female vegetarian chef, the bad-boy chef, the cancer survivor chef, not to mention the wine importer, the farmer, the restaurant critic, the host of a cooking competition show, the butcher, the magazine editor turned line cook, the fisherman, the baker, the beekeeper, the forager, even the sous-chef — there have been so many books from our people that you could be forgiven if at shift drink one night, loosened by a couple of shots, you rolled your eyes and groaned to your co-workers, “It’s only a matter of time before we have the celebrity dishwasher memoir.”
Well, I was close enough. Now the busboy — my apologies, that’s back waiter — has written a book too. And she has done an outstanding job of it.
