New Jersey considers honoring chef Bourdain with food trail
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey is considering honoring celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain with a food trail.
The famed cook, writer and host of the CNN series “Parts Unknown” killed himself nearly two weeks ago in a luxury hotel in France. The 61-year-old was born in New York, but grew up in the New Jersey suburb of Leonia.
Democratic New Jersey Assemblyman Paul Moriarty on Monday introduced a resolution that would require the Travel and Tourism Division to establish the “Anthony Bourdain Food Trail.” Bourdain visited 10 eateries in the state in a 2015 episode of CNN’s “Parts Unknown.
One of the stops was Donkey’s Place in Camden, which Bourdain said rivaled nearby Philadelphia for cheesesteaks.
