I really enjoyed your work, from food, to stories about culture, and the stories about the people who bring it all together. It's been a pleasure listening and enjoying one of the best story tellers out there. I know there will always be reruns, but Sunday nights at 9 pm was my hour with Tony. I learned a lot about other cultures and you made the stories fun and interesting -- and tied them together with everybody's sit down go-to -- food. Thank you!

Been a fan of your work for a very very long time. Read all of your books, watched every episode from all of your T.V. shows. The thing that I am most thankful for is that because of my love of food, cooking & being a very big fan...I have passed the same things onto my son, who has the love of food, cooking, travel & learning about the people and their culture. He has traveled to 14 countries in

I feel like I know you. Wish I could have shared a meal. No telling what I might have learned.

The best show on TV. You are the epitome of truth in journalism. What a time you must of had--living your dream, writing about it and dining on the delights of the country.

Always connecting with anyone--rich or poor. This was you at your best. Your comedic approach, your kindness to strangers, your love of what you were doing. Priceless.

I am deeply saddened by the death of Mr. Bourdain and even more that it was from his own hands.
As a professional chef, I don't know of any friend and/or colleague that were not fans of Mr. Bourdain. He felt like kin to us. I wish he had known how many he had touched.

My most sincere sympathy for his family and friends.
