When news of his death hit, we were rocked. He was our inspiration; we mourned and remembered him along with this large base of fans, friends, and admirers. At the time, we assumed we had written our final recap of his work. Then, CNN decided to release the remaining three installments of season 11 of Parts Unknown , along with several tributes to the influential traveler, TV host, author, and chef. As CNN airs these episodes, our recaps will go on. We'll follow him as long as we can.

Cajun Mardi Gras is a one-day celebration that occurs every year on the day before Ash Wednesday. Then the party headed back to town, where all the local businesses have boarded up their windows to protect their property from the ensuing festivities. And whether it was the food, the injuries, the people or the vibe, Bourdain perfectly captured Cajun Mardi Gras and made you glad that he, and not us, was there to see it in person.
