As a huge Bordain fan, I'm really bummed out this morning.
I remember seeing No Reservations about 10 years ago thinking "this dude's an @$$h0le." But then I read a couple of his books (Kitchen Confidential, highly recommended), and kept watching..............and kept watching.
I came to love Bordain's sardonic almost tragic style of self deprecation and style of interviewing. He became my spirit animal, someone I highly admired for his character, intelligence, brutal sense of humor and of course what he got to do for a living. To be able to travel the world, eat amazing food and interview the most interesting people, how could it get better than that.
Why does it seem like all the good ones leave us too soon?
