    It's still hard to realize he's no longer in this world. In the back of my mind I guess he's just away eating exotic food somewhere wonderful. The world is truly poorer for his passing, a bit of light was taken away.

    As the birthday of the late chef Anthony Bourdain approaches later this month, friends and fellow celebrity chefs Eric Ripert and Jose Andres proposed an official day in his honor.

    The duo posted a video on Instagram urging everyone to celebrate the late chef’s birthday on June 25 with the hashtag #BOURDAINDAY.

    “On this day we will celebrate the Life, Legacy & Birthday of our Dear Friend Anthony. Wherever you are & whoever you’re with, on 06/25 join @chefjoseandres & I by taking a moment to post & share your tributes & memories of Anthony using #BourdainDay & wish him Peace, Love and a very Happy Birthday on his journey,” the post read.

    Although the anniversary of Bourdain's death is June 8, the celebratory day is what would be Bourdain's birthday. Andrés and Ripert made the declaration this morning via a Twitter video in which Ripert declared June a "very important month."

    Indeed, there is much to celebrate at this time, in spite of Bourdain no longer being with us. On Tuesday, CNN's 'Anthony Bourdain Remembered,' a collection of images and quotes celebrating the life and memory of Bourdain, went on sale, and on June 25, fans and friends are encouraged to share more of their beloved memories using the hashtag #BourdainDay.

    The hashtag began trending shortly after Andrés and Ripert's initial announcement, but it's likely to go viral on June 25 when fans all over the world begin celebrating the inimitable Tony Bourdain.

    The late Anthony Bourdain's family will be auctioning off some of the TV chef's prized possessions in October, including a US$6000 (AU$8750) knife, 15 months after his death.

    Sixty per cent of the proceeds will go to his daughter Ariane and wife Ottavia Busia-Bourdain (they were separated some time before his passing, during which Bourdain famously dated Italian actress Asia Argento).
    The remaining proceeds will be funnelled into a new scholarship program at the Culinary Institute of America set up in the TV travel presenter's name that, fittingly, allows grant recipients to study abroad.

    Auctioneer Lark Mason (Antiques Roadshow) has estimated the market value of the combined items lies somewhere between US$200,000 (AU$293,000) and US$400,000 (AU$585,000).
