    Anthony Bourdain was one of two 'travel chefs' who I loved to watch in the last many years; the other of course being Andrew Zimmern. One of the best episodes ever was one wherein the two of them joined forces exploring NY and 'one upping' each other.

    I cannot begin to comprehend what struggles Chef Bourdain was still fighting that resulted in him taking his own life. Nor can I describe my sadness.

    Chef, thank you for all the travels and the wonderful episodes. I can only hope and pray that your soul finds a deserved measure of peace in the World To Come.

    I also wish to convey my deepest condolences to Chef Boudain's ex wives, his mother and most of all to his daughter. May the memory of Chef Bourdain's life and humanity be a blessing to them all.

    L'chaim

    I have enjoyed watching both of those guys too.

    Sad that Mr Bourdain couldn't find what he was looking for in this world.

    Seemed like he had about the best job in the world, a daughter he enjoyed, a nice girlfriend and plenty of money. If that doesn't make you happy, I guess nothing will.

    Do those things cure cancer or heart disease?

    Why would we expect them to cure mental illness?

    No, but they certainly do not hurt, and they do help.

    Didn't say they would.

    Look up Raw Craft, another of his series, not about food.
