Nearly a year after beloved chef, author, and TV personality Anthony Bourdain died by suicide, Toronto will host a free tribute in his honour.
The household name, an inspiration to many, left behind a vast body of work that has majorly impacted the culinary scene in Toronto, and around the world. To remember him, a tribute event will be held in the Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library on May 6.
The evening will be hosted by food, drink, and travel writer Suresh Doss.

- Chefs across Canada mourn the passing of Anthony Bourdain
The free-entry evening will serve as an opportunity for Bourdain’s colleagues to talk about his work, his legacy, and how he changed the way we think about food.
In addition to nourishing conversation, you can also look forward to a full bar with a selection of beers, wine, and liquor, as well as sandwiches and snacks.
While the event is free, you can RSVP via Eventbrite, and you’ll want to arrive early to make sure you secure your spot. Also, you don’t need to print your ticket; this helps keep the event’s waste low.
Don’t miss the chance to learn, reflect, and raise a glass to one of the very best.
