Anthony Bourdain, the inspiring storyteller, chef, and author who brought world cuisine into the homes of millions of people watching from TV sets passed away on Friday. He leaves behind a legacy of sharing stories from around the world and inspiring curiosity and empathy in his viewers. In the hours after his death, many took to social media to remember the ways in which the gifted chef made his advocacy for women and immigrants part of his greatest contributions to the world.
During Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign the then-candidate vowed to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants during his presidency. At the time, Bourdain reminded voters of how much the United States depends on the contributions of undocumented immigrants. During an interview, Bourdain emphasized that the deportation of the country’s 11 million immigrants would undoubtedly disrupt the restaurant industry and cause every establishment in the US to “shut down.”
While also being a fierce advocate for immigrant, Bourdain also became enthusiast of Latin American cuisine and toured various countries during his time on his award-winning CNN series, “Parts Unknown” as well as his Travel Channel series “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” Here’s a look at 20 destinations in Latina America Bourdain visited.
