SAN DIEGO – In just one week, two major food and fashion icons took their own lives.

Days after fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead in her New York home, Anthony Bourdain died in his apartment in France. Bourdain was shooting an episode of his show on CNN “Parts Unknown.”

San Diego celebrity chef Sam Zien, known as Sam the Cooking Guy, explained how Bourdain impacted the world.

“People are so moved by what Anthony taught them. How to enjoy life – grab it, live it,” said Zien, adding that he remembered Bourdain telling young people to travel as much as they could. “You’ll learn what the world’s about, people’s food – but at the heart of it, you learn about people.”

“I loved to read his books. Anybody who only knows him from TV will really get a sense of him by reading his books,” Zien said.

Bourdain had acknowledged in the past that anyone would’ve quit their job to do what he did for his career and would do it for free.

“I don’t know how many of my friends said to me, if I could have any job in the world it would be [Anthony’s job]. Who doesn’t want to travel to the best parts of the world, eat great food and meet interesting people?” Zien said. “Anthony Bourdain appeared to have everything going on.”

Bourdain had been open to discussing his past drug abuse issues and appeared to had overcome it.

“His family never saw it coming. Certainly, Kate Spade’s family didn’t see it coming. My brother committed suicide six years ago and I can tell you we never saw it coming. He was troubled, but we never had an idea that this was going to happen,” Zien said.

“He made a choice yesterday to end it verse staying and being here for those who loved him. It is just so sad I can’t believe it,” Zien said. “You can only point people toward help and hope that those that are out there in need will pick up the phone and call someone.”

NOT NOT TACOS - In San Diego’s Little Italy Food Hall are NOT the tacos you’re thinking. There’s no carne asada, no pollo and definitely no corn tortillas. But there is pastrami, Korean short rib, smokey pork & mac and insanely delicious custom flour tortillas.

GRAZE - about 40 feet away serves flatbreads, charcuterie boards and shareable fun food in a living room kind of setting.

SAMBURGERS - In the Little Italy Food Hall along with Not Not and also at Seaport Village, our burgers are what dreams are made of - ok, they’re actually made of really delicious ingredients, but you know what we mean.

Sam Zien (born August 7, 1959), known as Sam the Cooking Guy, is a Canadian-born[1] television cook, YouTuber, restaurateur, and cookbook author, based in San Diego, California.[citation needed]

Television career[edit]

Zien's career in television began after quitting his job as an executive for a San Diego pharmaceutical company.[2] In 2001, after a poorly timed effort to begin a career in travel television which was derailed by the September 11 attacks, he switched his focus to a cooking show. He produced his own test screening and distributed the tape to local San Diego television stations.[1][2] San Diego's then-Fox affiliate XETV-TDT offered him a two to three minute slot during its morning news program. The job was unpaid—a situation that changed after his work earned a Regional Emmy from the National Television Academy's Pacific Southwest Chapter.[1]

In January 2005, Zien moved to County Television Network (CTN), San Diego County's public-access television, after CTN offered him a half-hour time slot on their station. His Sam the Cooking Guy show spread to other cities through agreements with sister cable companies; his work was recognized with more Regional Emmys and a book deal from John Wiley and Sons.[1]

Zien's next break came from the Discovery Health Channel, where Zien signed a deal to shoot the first season of a series called Just Grill This![2] The network was subsequently purchased by the Oprah Winfrey Network; Zien's show was not renewed for a second season.[citation needed]

In 2008, Zien appeared on NBC's The Today Show in a segment with Kathy Lee Gifford and Hota Kotb. After being interrupted repeatedly during the first half of the segment, Zien suddenly spoke emphatically - "Please, can I talk? I watch the show every day, everybody has issues with a lot of chatter back here. Pay attention, one minute." A clip of the segment appeared on YouTube following its airing and in days had surpassed 2,000,000 views, with most commenters applauding Sam for his firm stance in the face of the NBC hosts.[3]

YouTube channel[edit]

On May 23, 2011, Zien premiered The Sam Livecast, an Internet cooking show originating from his home kitchen. Three new episodes per week feature food-related and other subject matters. After 200 live episodes,[citation needed] the production switched[when?] to a live-to-tape format.[citation needed]

After moving away from the live streamed format, The Sam Livecast transitioned into a YouTube channel under a different name - Sam the Cooking Guy - and experienced a surge in subscribers and views, reaching almost two and a half million subscribers by December 2020.[4][5]


In July 2018, Zien opened his first restaurant - Not Not Tacos - a casual dining establishment featuring Zien's unique take on non-traditional tacos. Located within the Little Italy Food Hall in the Little Italy area of downtown San Diego, Zien serves tacos such as Korean Short Rib, Pulled Pork with Macaroni and Cheese, Seared Salmon, and Meatloaf.[6]

In March 2020, Zien opened a second restaurant in the Little Italy Food Hall, called Graze by Sam.[clarification needed][citation needed]


Zien has written four cookbooks, all published by John Wiley & Sons:

The mouth once again hospitably absorbed his handsome man. He could no longer, his body tensed, and she still did not let him go, increasing the pace, then slowing down, she sucked, stroked, bit. Then licked the head on both the tip and the rim, then again took it entirely into her mouth, bringing him to a frenzy.

And he could not resist. The body tensed and shook in convulsions.

She got up, smiled at me and, kissing me on the cheek, went to the guy who was waiting for her. At our table. He immediately embraced my sun by the shoulders and, huddling, they, laughing and merrily exchanging phrases, went somewhere. After waiting, I followed them.

They stopped in a dark corner next to the sofa.


I think I got to the stallions. In general, a little later, the three of them were already fucking their sister. And in the pussy, and ass and mouth. I took Anton's phone and let's take it off. Their sister is scary, I didn't like it.
