Video: Eric Ripert and José Andrés declare June 25 'Bourdain Day'

The chefs call on social media users to use #BourdainDay as a tribute to the late Anthony Bourdain

Chefs Eric Ripert and José Andrés took to social media last Thursday to declare June 25 to be "Bourdain Day" in honor of their friend and fellow chef Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain passed away by suicide last year, shocking the culinary community around the globe and opening up conversations regarding mental health in the restaurant industry

Though the anniversary of Bourdain's death is June 8, the celebratory day, however, will mark what would have been Bourdain's birthday. Ripert and Andrés are calling on fans to post tributes and memories of the late "Parts Unknown" host, writer and culinary figure with the hashtag #BourdainDay.
