  • Anthony Bourdain, Chef And TV Personality, Dead At 61

Bourdain, who hosted CNN's "Parts Unknown", was found dead in his hotel room Friday. "I'd love to have her a continuing director".

Oliver wrote on Instagram: "I have to say I'm in total shock to hear that the unbelievable @anthonybourdain has just died".

Kitchen Confidential could be considered a book about the long and perilous road Bourdain took to become a chef at a fancy restaurant in Manhattan. Her brand, Kate Spade New York, has more than 140 retail shops and outlet stores across the US and more than 175 stores internationally. French authorities have confirmed that Bourdain's method of suicide was by hanging himself with his bathrobe's belt. They were very down to earth no fuss.

"We can't take for granted that everyone learns this by some magic formula", said the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention's Dr. His brilliant storytelling, blatant honesty, and willingness to speak whatever came to his mind are what solidified him as a star in his field. Parts Unknown got an award from MPAC (the Muslim Public Affairs Council) for its episode on Israel and Palestine.

Bourdain leaves behind a daughter and a girlfriend, Italian actress Asia Argento.

Mel Mecinas, an executive chef in Scottsdale, Arizona, who was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, remembers when Bourdain featured his home state on "Parts Unknown".

"He was effusive and happy about the Hong Kong episode-that was all he could talk about weeks leading up to it, how it was like a high water mark for him", she said.

'Suddenly I look at the hamburger and I find myself in a spiral of depression that can last for days'.

CNN broke the story of Bourdain's passing.

Beneath the swagger and mischievous grin, however, loomed a history of lethally destructive behavior.

One note said: "Thank you for what you gave to this world, a deeper understanding of culture and food". At that point, wrote Bourdain, "my nightly attempts at suicide ended".

Mr Obama wrote: "He taught us about food - but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together".

"I've spent such a lot of time in the developing world, I was caught in a war in Beirut, been in Liberia, the Congo, Iraq and Libya and realised how fast things can get bad, how arbitrary good fortune and cruelty and death", he said in the interview.

The renowned chef, writer and correspondent was a frequent critic of Trump, and said that he had "Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer".
