Biography

Anthony Bourdain was born on June 25, 1956 in New York City and was the older of two sons of Pierre and Gladys (née Sacksman) Bourdain. Although Bourdain was not raised in a specified religion, his father was Catholic, whereas his mother was Jewish. Bourdain stated that though he was considered Jewish by Judaism, "I've never been in a synagogue. I don't believe in a higher power. But that doesn't make me any less Jewish, I don't think." His family was not religious either.

At the time of Bourdain's birth, his father was a salesman at a New York City camera store as well as a floor manager at a record store. Pierre Bourdain later became an executive for Columbia Records, and Gladys Bourdain was a staff editor at The New York Times. Bourdain's paternal grandparents were French; his paternal grandfather emigrated from Arcachon to New York following World War I. Bourdain's father spent summers in France as a boy and grew up speaking French.
