Late renowned Chef Anthony Bourdain brought joy to millions over the years, taking gastronomes on journeys of food discoveries to faraway places and now, you can try the #BourdainDay Tribute Menu at Sticky Mango from 21-27 June 2021. Sticky Mango has partnered with The Burnt Chef Project to donate £5 from every menu sold to raise valuable funds for this worthwhile cause, supporting chefs and raising awareness of the ever-increasing challenges on mental health within the industry.
In 2019, American Chefs Eric Ripert and Jose Andreas proposed a worldwide call to action: to commemorate Anthony’s birthday and to celebrate his life annually on 25th June, which would become #BourdainDay. Chef Peter Lloyd, owner of restaurant Sticky Mango, is one of many who were inspired by Anthony’s journeys, and in honour of the great chef, Peter commissioned a stunning mural, which was created by street artist Jerome Davenport and is displayed on the front of Peter’s restaurant.
To celebrate #BourdainDay 2021, Peter and his Sticky Mango team have designed a sharing menu to re-create some of the magical discoveries and meals that Anthony brought to TV screens. The special menu, priced at £49.50 pp will run for one week from Monday 21st until Sunday 27th June 2021.
Sticky Mango’s #BourdainDay Menu will feature inspirations from a lunch Anthony shared with former US president Barack Obama in Vietnam Bon Cha ‘Explore Parts Unknown Season 8 Episode 1’. Another episode of ‘Explore Parts Unknown Season 3 Episode 7’ in Chang Mai, Thailand, showed Chef Andy Ricker eating pigs brains barbecued in banana leaf and crispy pigs tail, as well as the famous Chiang Mai sausage, described by Anthony as, “the best meal I’ve ever had.”
Another highlight hails from ‘A Chefs Tour Season 2 Episode 10’, a Singaporean meal with street food guru, KF Seetoh, where the duo discovers Crab Bee Hoon, which Anthony declares as, “the single best dish I’ve had; if there’s nothing better than this I’d be pretty happy with that.”
