CNN, Travel Channel remember Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain, Chef And TV Personality, Dead At 61 Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain found dead at age 61

Xi'an Famous Foods, a popular Chinese restaurant chain in New York City, had humble beginnings, but the CEO says the family business has flourished thanks to the late Anthony Bourdain.

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, host of CNN's food-and-travel-focused "Parts Unknown" television series, killed himself in a French hotel room, CNN said on Friday, in the second high-profile suicide of a US celebrity this week.

Gladys said Ripert had told her that "Tony had been in a dark mood these past couple of days, but she had no idea why he might have chose to kill himself". But just being by the side of someone who is depressed, and reminding her that she is special to you, is important to ensuring that she does not feel alone, says Dr.

'He had everything. Success beyond his wildest dreams.

In an article he later wrote for Medium, Bourdain said: "To be fortunate enough to be able to visit Thailand, to eat in Thailand, is a deep dive into a rich, many textured, very old culture containing flavors and colors that go far beyond the familiar spectrum".

Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room on Friday in an apparent suicide. "I'm on the road about 250 days a year and I stay in a lot of lovely places and look out the window at a lot of lovely views, but I am usually alone", he said.

"I'm going to pretty much die in the saddle", he told the magazine in February while filming his show Parts Unknown.


"What can I tell you about what it's like to sit across from the President of the United States and drink beer from the bottle?", he had told CNN.

Unlike other male celebrities who have discretely kept their silence about high-powered abusers and harassers, Bourdain publicly celebrated Weinstein's fall and recent arrest, as the almost 3 million followers of his personal Instagram account know. "The guy speaks like a bullet train with all the facts on his palm, delivering what we need to know precisely from his passion for Malaysian heritage cuisine".

I have seen it.

A close friend and French chef, Eric Ripert, found Bourdain unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning.

"I did not myself know it", Elmer said. News. The insider said that in the weeks before his passing, Bourdain appeared to act "normal, upbeat and happy", but added, "He's usually an introvert so it wasn't unusual that he kept to himself". We hope you're highly impressed with the new and improved SocialistWorker.org that we launched at the end of last month.

"At This Hour" anchor Kate Bolduan: "Whenever we'd tape" a segment, "I would always, like, yell back at him, 'In my next life, I'm coming back as Anthony Bourdain!' And he'd turn and look at me and be like, 'OK, OK, good luck with that one.' But I think that's why - that is not unique to me, right?" He taught us about food - but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together.

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. Morgan Bulman, 24, fondly remembered spending a summer watching "No Reservations" and called Bourdain's death a "personal loss". "You were so loved, the world is not better without you", she wrote in one.
