Anthony Bourdain (in memoriam)

The late New York chef and journalist Anthony Bourdain was recognised a few months ago by the management of the congress for the Pau Albornà i Torras Award 2018, a distinction that Bourdain accepted. Unfortunately, a week later, he took his own life. Nevertheless, San Sebastian Gastronomika-Euskadi Basque Country would like to carry on with the aforementioned award, in his memory, for his pivotal work in disseminating world cuisine and his strong support for sustainability and fair trade, as well as for his magnificent literary and television work.
