Anthony Bourdain — the revered chef, television host, author, and advocate — has died at age 61,CNNannounced today.

I always appreciated Anthony Bourdain’s non-elitist attitude towards food and his trip to Waffle House was an exemplar of this. Most foodies would turn their noses up to a meal at Waffle House, Bourdain was willing to give it a shot. He applied this same logic to travel, culture, unique experiences, people, politics and just about everything else life seems to throw at us.

Throughout his career, Bourdain was an outspoken advocate for underrepresented people in the culinary world. He regularly championed immigrants, shining a spotlight on some of the issues they face and their many contributions to the restaurant industry. He also spoke out against sexual harassment.
