The hour-long episode will feature Bourdain's visit to Mamou during the 2018 Mardi Gras season. Mamou is famous for its unorthodox Mardi Gras traditions, which include activities like chasing chickens and horseback riding.
Bourdain was found dead earlier this month from an apparent suicide. His televised travels brought him all over the world and led to meetings with numerous celebrities and political figures, including President Barack Obama.
“Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer.” This is how I’ll remember Tony. He taught us about food — but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together. To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. We’ll miss him. pic.twitter.com/orEXIaEMZM— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) June 8, 2018
