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 1st time in Malaysia.
Premiering on 4 June 2019, 9pm on Discovery Channel (CH 551), fans can catch new episodes of his last two seasons every Tuesday.
Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown Season 11 has 8 episodes featuring Bourdain’s culinary adventures in West Virginia, Newfoundland, Armenia, Uruguay, Bhutan, Berlin, Hong Kong and Cajun Mardi Gras.
Season 12, however, only has 5 episodes along with 2 tribute episodes, as he tragically passed away midway through filming. Bourdain passed away in France, leaving that episode incomplete.
The available 5 episodes of Season 12showcases 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.
