It’s speculated that omelettes were also on the menu

In the weeks following the exposure of sexual assault allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein, celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain promised to become a better ally for women. Over Thanksgiving weekend, he got together with actresses Rose McGowan, Annabella Sciorra, and Asia Argento — all of whom have come forward with accounts of unwelcome and inappropriate encounters with Weinstein — to start making good on that promise with a home-cooked meal.

“It was an honor to cook for this meeting of the minds,” Bourdain wrote on Twitter alongside a photo of McGowan and Argento, who shared the same image captioned: “You are my sister. And I love you. May all of your dreams come true. I want this for you. They’re gonna come true.”

“My sisters #tribevibe #goodtrouble,” replied Sciorra, who is also tagged in the post.

“I love you Sorella. You are my blood. I honor your strength. Bless your beautiful soul,” Argento wrote back.

It’s unclear exactly what was on the menu, but McGowan wrote to Bourdain on Twitter to praise the “Best omelet ever.” According to Argento, the Kitchen Confidential author (who is also her current beau) “cooked us food filled with love and strength.”

The group’s photo has garnered tens of thousands of likes among a sea of kind words from strangers near and far. Some users said they would’ve driven across the country to attend the meal, while others metaphorically cast their votes to each woman for Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” — a play on the president’s recent tweet in which he claimed to have declined the honor.

Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!

McGowan, Sciorra, and Argento are three of over 50 women who have spoken out about their non-consensual experiences with Weinstein. Other high-profile names who’ve been accused of sexual misconduct include celebrity chefs John Besh and Todd English, actor Kevin Spacey, and politicians Roy Moore and Al Franken — among a slew of others.

For these actresses at least, Bourdain’s meal seems to have facilitated some healing. For uplifting stories and people doing well by others, here are the most inspiring food stories of 2017.


Anthony Bourdain's Dark Side 'Finally Overtook Him': 'He'd Always Managed to Outrun It,' Says Source

&ldquoI&rsquom still in total shock of course. I just can&rsquot believe it, and I can&rsquot believe it would happen while he was in the middle of working,&rdquo a source who has known Bourdain for decades tells PEOPLE of the 61-year-old American chef and TV host, who died of an apparent suicide in France.

The host of CNN&rsquos Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown was found unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning by close friend and French chef Eric Ripert, according to CNN. Both were filming an upcoming episode of Bourdain&rsquos award-winning show.

&ldquoIf there was one thing that was always his saving grace, it was his ability to throw himself into his work &mdash he was never happier than when he was on some adventure or in the middle of a project, so it&rsquos so bizarre to me, and I&rsquom sure to many people who knew him, that of all the times, this happened when he was doing what he loved and with people he loves,&rdquo continues the source.

In a February interview with PEOPLE just months before his death, Bourdain opened up about his &ldquodriven&rdquo nature and how his Parts Unknown team &ldquohas become like my dysfunctional family.&rdquo

While Bourdain admitted he had thought about retiring, he explained he&rsquod since given up on that idea. &ldquoI&rsquove tried. I just think I&rsquom just too nervous, neurotic, driven,&rdquo he said.

&ldquoI would have had a different answer a few years ago. I might have deluded myself into thinking that I&rsquod be happy in a hammock or gardening. But no, I&rsquom quite sure I can&rsquot,&rdquo he continued, adding, &ldquoI&rsquom going to pretty much die in the saddle.&rdquo

&ldquoI guess the darkness just finally overtook him,&rdquo adds the source. &ldquoThat&rsquos the thing about him and he&rsquod have been the first to say it &mdash his dark side was always there, but it&rsquos like the darkness was always just a few steps behind him, it was like he&rsquod managed to outrun it, literally, with this life of far-flung adventures and everything. But it was never really gone.&rdquo

&ldquoHe always had a very very dark side,&rdquo the source continues. &ldquoAnd the same things that drove him to heroin, those demons are never fully banished, they&rsquore just controlled. But he still had them.&rdquo

Bourdain was candid about his struggles with heroin earlier in his career, telling Biography in 2016, &ldquoI got off of heroin in the 1980s. Friends of mine from the &lsquo70s and &lsquo80s, they just got off five, six, maybe 10 years ago. And we&rsquore the lucky ones. We made it out alive. There are a lot of guys that didn&rsquot get that far. But you know, I also don&rsquot have that many regrets either.&rdquo

Bourdain &mdash who shared an 11-year-old daughter, Ariane, with ex-wife Ottavia Busia &mdash began dating Italian actress Asia Argento in 2017, after she appeared on an episode of Parts Unknown filmed in her hometown of Rome.

Argento was one of the dozens of women to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment in 2017 (Weinstein has &ldquounequivocally&rdquo denied &ldquoany allegations of non-consensual sex&rdquo). Bourdain became one of the most outspoken celebrities about the #MeToo era, showing unwavering support for his girlfriend, and even holding a dinner for Argento and fellow Weinstein accusers Rose McGowan and Annabella Sciorra.

&ldquoIt was an honor to cook for this meeting of the minds,&rdquo he said on Twitter, tweeting out a picture of the meal in November.

A police spokesperson in Strasbourg, France, confirmed Bourdain&rsquos death to PEOPLE, but could not provide additional comment.

&ldquoIt is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,&rdquo CNN said in a statement. &ldquoHis love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.&rdquo

Bourdain was candid about his struggles with heroin earlier in his career, telling Biography in 2016, &ldquoI got off of heroin in the 1980s. Friends of mine from the &lsquo70s and &lsquo80s, they just got off five, six, maybe 10 years ago. And we&rsquore the lucky ones. We made it out alive. There are a lot of guys that didn&rsquot get that far. But you know, I also don&rsquot have that many regrets either.&rdquo

Bourdain &mdash who shared an 11-year-old daughter, Ariane, with ex-wife Ottavia Busia &mdash began dating Italian actress Asia Argento in 2017, after she appeared on an episode of Parts Unknown filmed in her hometown of Rome.

Argento was one of the dozens of women to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment in 2017 (Weinstein has &ldquounequivocally&rdquo denied &ldquoany allegations of non-consensual sex&rdquo). Bourdain became one of the most outspoken celebrities about the #MeToo era, showing unwavering support for his girlfriend, and even holding a dinner for Argento and fellow Weinstein accusers Rose McGowan and Annabella Sciorra.

&ldquoIt was an honor to cook for this meeting of the minds,&rdquo he said on Twitter, tweeting out a picture of the meal in November.

A police spokesperson in Strasbourg, France, confirmed Bourdain&rsquos death to PEOPLE, but could not provide additional comment.

&ldquoIt is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,&rdquo CNN said in a statement. &ldquoHis love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.&rdquo

Anthony Bourdain's Dark Side 'Finally Overtook Him': 'He'd Always Managed to Outrun It,' Says Source

&ldquoI&rsquom still in total shock of course. I just can&rsquot believe it, and I can&rsquot believe it would happen while he was in the middle of working,&rdquo a source who has known Bourdain for decades tells PEOPLE of the 61-year-old American chef and TV host, who died of an apparent suicide in France.

The host of CNN&rsquos Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown was found unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning by close friend and French chef Eric Ripert, according to CNN. Both were filming an upcoming episode of Bourdain&rsquos award-winning show.

&ldquoIf there was one thing that was always his saving grace, it was his ability to throw himself into his work &mdash he was never happier than when he was on some adventure or in the middle of a project, so it&rsquos so bizarre to me, and I&rsquom sure to many people who knew him, that of all the times, this happened when he was doing what he loved and with people he loves,&rdquo continues the source.

In a February interview with PEOPLE just months before his death, Bourdain opened up about his &ldquodriven&rdquo nature and how his Parts Unknown team &ldquohas become like my dysfunctional family.&rdquo

While Bourdain admitted he had thought about retiring, he explained he&rsquod since given up on that idea. &ldquoI&rsquove tried. I just think I&rsquom just too nervous, neurotic, driven,&rdquo he said.

&ldquoI would have had a different answer a few years ago. I might have deluded myself into thinking that I&rsquod be happy in a hammock or gardening. But no, I&rsquom quite sure I can&rsquot,&rdquo he continued, adding, &ldquoI&rsquom going to pretty much die in the saddle.&rdquo

&ldquoI guess the darkness just finally overtook him,&rdquo adds the source. &ldquoThat&rsquos the thing about him and he&rsquod have been the first to say it &mdash his dark side was always there, but it&rsquos like the darkness was always just a few steps behind him, it was like he&rsquod managed to outrun it, literally, with this life of far-flung adventures and everything. But it was never really gone.&rdquo

&ldquoHe always had a very very dark side,&rdquo the source continues. &ldquoAnd the same things that drove him to heroin, those demons are never fully banished, they&rsquore just controlled. But he still had them.&rdquo
