Dad’s Advice: Food with Family

Anthony Bourdain

Of the many articles that pay homage to dads of the world, I particularly enjoyed this recent essay on BonAppetit.com by writer, chef, and television host Anthony Bourdain, where he talks honestly about his relationship with his dad. It’s a beautiful tribute to the man who taught Bourdain what he knows about food, family, and fatherhood: “He taught me early that the value of a dish is the pleasure it brings you; where you are sitting when you eat it—and who you are eating it with—are what really matter.” Simple and important, any way you slice it.
