Lark Mason Associates and founder Lark Mason Jr. will host an Anthony Bourdain exhibition in New Braunfels this month.

New Braunfels-based auction house Lark Mason Associates will present one of three exhibitions worldwide featuring property from the collection of famed chef and travel documentarian Anthony Bourdain. The exhibit takes place Oct. 9-30 at 210 W. Mill St., New Braunfels.

A second exhibition will be held by Lark Mason Associates in New York from Oct. 9-30, and a third exhibition will be hosted by Everard Auctions & Appraisals in Savannah, Georgia, from Oct. 28-30.

Part of a simultaneous auction that will showcase hundreds of Bourdain’s personal affects, items available for purchase include artwork, manuscripts, furniture and décor, jewelry, chef knives and more.

A 1978 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, the auction will dedicate 40% of the hammer price for each item sold to the institute’s Anthony Bourdain Legacy Scholarship.

Chef and author, Bourdain—born June 25, 1956 and died June 8, 2018—was perhaps best known for his culinary-related travel shows including "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" (2005-12) and "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" (2013-18).
