A tribute book to Anthony Bourdain filled with photos, quotes and memories is slated to be published this spring, almost a year since the globe trotting chef passed away.
Barack Obama, Eric Ripert, Jill Filipovic, Ken Burns, Questlove and José Andrés are just a few of the contributors that will reminisce on “Bourdain’s unique achievements and his enduring effect on their lives” in a selection of memories and anecdotes originally collated by CNN as a keepsake for his daughter.
Daniel Halpern, from Ecco, the book’s publisher, told People Magazine, “Anthony Bourdain’s passing was a huge loss to us all and there isn’t a day that goes by when we don’t miss his singular presence. Anthony Bourdain Remembered reminds me of the joy that he brought to everyone who knew him or watched him on-air as he moved in his particular way around the globe. It is the perfect memento for those of us who, through his shows, came to know the others who inhabit our planet – and an homage to the world’s most beloved traveler.”
