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.
“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.
