Grand Forks, North Dakota, food critic Marilyn Hagerty, who went viral in 2012 after penning a glowing review of her local Olive Garden, has nothing but kind things to say about Anthony Bourdain, who was one of the first people to publicly support her.

“I went viral because there were hundreds and hundreds of comments after the column I wrote about the Olive Garden coming to Grand Forks. I was overwhelmed with the attention I was getting,” Hagerty, who is now in her 90s, tells PEOPLE.
