A deep-dive into everywhere Bourdain has been and eaten and drunk. It's a beautifully designed interactive site and lots of fun to poke around and click on things. There's lots of stuff from his previous series with more than was shown on the shows. It's always expanding its offerings so it pays to check it out fairly often. Here's their blurb about their "mission" :

Explore Parts Unknown is a mobile-first immersive guide featuring original stories and video, premium photography, and engaging interactives. Inspired by the Emmy-winning CNN Original Series Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, we’re recreating Bourdain’s journeys and diving deeper into the places, people, and stories he’s encountered.

Explore Parts Unknown is an editorial partnership between CNN and Roads & Kingdoms—an independent media company focused on food, politics, and travel based in New York and Barcelona. Together, we have built a digital universe for the Bourdain super-fan to learn what he knows, go where he went, eat what he ate, and see what he saw.

Born from Bourdain’s contagious passion for culture, food, travel, and adventure, Explore Parts Unknown highlights our shared obsessions: authentic food, culture, people, travel.

I was going to be snarky and say "Where's the Waffle House?", but damned if it isn't there.

Interesting he has not visited much of South America and there are a lot of older shows "coming soon". Really hate that style of interface, what is it? The superficial coffee table book of data analysis?

The first 6 seasons (of 9) are on Netflix....but only until Monday, I think. It's quite good for "exotic locales" travel tv.

My favourite work of his is when he guest starred as Lance "Bastard Chef" Casteau in the Archer episode "Live and Let Dine". Fantastic performance all round.
