The world lost a staggeringly talented chef, writer, TV personality, and humanitarian last week when Anthony Bourdain took his own life. Over the years, Fast Company was fortunate enough to interview Bourdain several times, the last of which took place this past September. We released an edited version of the filmed interview at the time, focusing on a section in which the chef discussed how and why successful people say “no” to certain opportunities. Considering that some fans may want a little more time with Bourdain now, Fast Company has unearthed the unedited video of the entire 24-minute conversation.
Have a look below at the full video, which touches on issues such as creative freedom and resiliency, as we mourn the passing of a person who worked to make the world a better place.
