Barack Obama pays tribute to celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain

After the news broke on Friday, some of Bourdain's friends and fellow faces of CNN talked about his life and death for an hour-long documentary. His ability to find unity and universality in our diversity is what made him truly special.

"Remember we didn't have shows like Parts Unknown back then".

French authorities said Bourdain died by hanging at a luxury hotel, the Chambard, in the village of Kaysersberg in the Haut-Rhin region of Alsace.

Bourdain's struggles with depression were previously brought to light in a 2016 episode of his show, where he visited Argentina - a country which fascinated him because it embraced mental health treatment.

"They all just sat on the ground".

Still, by many accounts, including Ripert's, Bourdain had not been himself.

"He was gracious, professional, and easy to work with. But he probably wasn't used to sitting on the floor either".

A self-acknowledged reformed addict of heroin and cocaine - "I would have robbed your medicine cabinet had I been invited to your house", he confessed in a 2013 Ask Me Anything session on Reddit - Bourdain was loved by those in the food world and beyond.

'It's really too hard, ' she said.

He also indicated that South Korea , China and Japan would be prepared to invest in the North to boost its besieged economy. He has not shied from using flattery either - he was the first to say Mr Trump could be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Bourdain's death by suicide shocked viewers around the world. "Given our limited time on this earth, and the sheer magnificence, the near limitless variety of sensory experiences readily available, you don't want to miss ANY of it". "You think it's probably a fake", the restaurant's sommelier, Herve Fleuriel, told The AP, recalling "that great Chef who was here on Wednesday lunch".

"The customers love it, many take photos next to the table", Ms Nga told the BBC earlier this year, adding: "For us, it is a nice memory that we will cherish forever". "Nobody was beneath him". He also added that a medical expert concluded no signs of violence on Bourdain's body. "Parts Unknown" was the latest in that series.

"I have the best job in the world", the globe-trotting food-taster and culinary storyteller once told the New Yorker magazine, stating the rather obvious. "Always quick with a witticism, always quick with a bit of wisdom", Ricker wrote in a social media post on June 9. "I know it's been a couple of days, but it is still so raw". But knowing the details will not help in the understanding. "RIP anh [brother] Tony".

Bourdain was born in New York City and raised in Leonia, New Jersey. The comedian described his past week as a "rough" one.

And while Schroeder may not have known much about Bourdain beforehand, he realized the day Bourdain came to his restaurant that he was in the presence of a culinary superstar. May he RIP, Chef Anthony. It was a honor to have met you and Chef Jet. Soon after his first marriage ended in 2005, as Bourdain related in his book "Medium Raw", he was "aimless and regularly suicidal" during a stretch in the Caribbean.

"He loved and was loved in return", Cooper said of Bourdain.

"Yes, I have been very blessed to have crossed paths with you in this lovely life. I'll never forget him".

"His travel schedule was grueling, and he often seemed quite beat-up from it, as anyone would be", the source said.
