🙏 My Citizens! An important reminder that today is the first-ever Bourdain Day, a marque created by legendary Chef and personality Anthony Bourdain’s friends to not only to celebrate food, but to also check in with those who may be suffering from mental health or substance abuse issues.
Food and clinical depression are two topics that hit close to home for the Supernal One, and their being intertwined today provides an opportunity to not only remember Tony, but to help others avoid his sad fate.
There are many resources for those in need of help with depression or substance abuse – please, seek them out before taking any irrevocable steps!
TFD Nation is a community of nearly 40,000 people – if we cannot stand together as one, we do not stand at all as decent human beings deserving of the name.
I do not know the names and faces of My Citizenry – but I want you all to finish reading with one realization: that the faceless man who leads you on this culinary journey of exploration DOES CARE. Seek help if you need it – there is no shame in the seeking or the receiving of understanding.
Requiescat in pace, Tony – you are sorely missed.
Citizens, please note that I can no longer afford to absorb the nearly $1000 per month it costs to keep the site running smoothly, including marketing expenses, etc. There is, however, a solution that benefits us all – one that will help to avoid the only other alternative, which is to add obnoxious ads throughout the site.
Become a Citizen Prime for only $4 per month and receive exclusive recipes, 3 free historic cookbook scans, discounts from TFD sponsors and so much more! For less than the cost of 1 Starbucks coffee, you can keep TFD Nation strong and proud! Details are here.
You can also show your support by listening to our podcasts, liking them, and sharing as you see fit – try them out here.
