Before his sudden passing, An‌tho‌ny Bo‌u‌rd‌ain made many fans and friends through CNN’s award-winning travelogue “Parts Unknown.”

The globe-trotting celebrity chef, who pa‌sse‌d Friday morning in a hotel room in France, left the world that adored him in total shock.

Renowned New York-based sushi artist Chef Masa Takayama was one of the many people devastated by the news.

In an interview with BBC , the Michelin star chef, who owns the Masa restaurant in New York City, m‌ou‌rn‌ed his friend’s loss as he fondly remembered Bo‌urd‌ai‌n as a man who

“is more deep into a culture behind all the cuisine. I think that the guy is, Tony, did more in a fancy, way more real stuff, in a real way.”

“I’m so upset,” Takayama said as he broke into tears. “He’s a good man. I will miss him very much.”

In an episode of “Parts Unknown” back in 2016, Takayama gave Bo‌urd‌ain‌ a tour of Japan, including Ishikawa Prefecture and Tochigi Prefecture.

“To call him America’s most respected sushi chef would be an injustice, as he is more than that — much more,” Bourdain was quoted as saying during the memorable episode.

“What was it about him that set him apart, took him from a rather bleak farming community in rural Japan to become first the toast of Los Angeles and later the king of New York? It is a fascinating story.”
