In conjunction with the first anniversary of Anthony Bourdain's passing, Astro in partnership with Discovery Channel is honoured to pay tribute this globe-trotting celebrity chef who through his culinary adventures, allowed us to taste vicariously, many cuisines from around the world.
This tribute to Anthony Bourdain features Season 11 and 12
of his last show, 'Parts Unknown',
which is being shown for the first time in Malaysia
Premiering on 4 June 2019
on Discovery Channel (CH 551)
, fans can catch new episodes of his last two seasons every Tuesday.
'Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown' Season 11
has eight episodes, featuring Bourdain’s culinary adventures in West Virginia, Newfoundland, Armenia, Uruguay, Bhutan, Berlin, Hong Kong and Cajun Mardi Gras.
, however, only has five episodes along with two tribute episodes, as he tragically passed away midway through filming. Bourdain passed away in France, leaving that episode incomplete.
The available five episodes of Season 12 showcase Bourdain in Kenya, Indonesia, Spain, New York and Texas. However, as Bourdain only completed the voiceover for the Kenyan episode before his passing, the remaining 4 episodes were left with a different treatment.
Fans will no doubt be doleful and nostalgic in the final season, when he leaves viewers with some lasting and profound parting messages. The two tribute episodes in Season 12
will feature Bourdain behind-the-scenes, and also, the impact Bourdain left in this world.
