MANILA, Philippines – Not only did the late great Anthony Bourdain leave behind a legacy to remember, but the renowned chef also left behind a collection of prized possessions, including his famed chef's knife, which are set to be put up for auction in October 2019.
The auction will feature over 200 of Bourdain's most prized items, such as his steel and meteorite Bob Kramer chef’s knife, various books, vinyl records, clothing, furniture, manuscripts of his own work (including Bone In The Throat), and artwork by Ralph Steadman and artist John Lurie.
Aside from the online auction, an exhibition will be held around New York, Texas, and Georgia under auctioneer Lark Mason between October 9 and October 30. A preview of the collection begins on October 2 at iGavel Auctions.
The collection is estimated to have a market value of $200,000 and $400,000, according to Mason.
According to a Fox News report, 60% of the auction proceeds will go to Bourdain’s wife and 12-year-old daughter, while the rest will be donated to the Culinary Institute of America, Bourdain's 1978 alma mater, to aid the Anthony Bourdain Legacy Scholarship.
