Remembering Anthony Bourdain: The Late Celebrity Chef In Dubai

Anthony Bourdain has been found dead aged 61 Anthony Bourdain has been found dead aged 61. Celebrity Bourdain’s dark past of ‘despair

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 USA celebrity this week. He wrote "Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer". I wish him peace.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN probably did more than any other chef to bring about the culinary renaissance now underway in the U.S. His books on the restaurant industry, like Kitchen Confidential, were half gonzo autobiography, half user guide, and all irreverent humor, spoken in the salty patois of kitchen subculture.

To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. "Maybe he went out and ate somewhere else, we said, but we didn't think much of it".

Anthony Bourdain's body is stuck in bureaucratic red tape in France, leaving funeral plans for him temporarily on hold, the celebrity chef's mom told The Post on Sunday. "Among people ages 15 to 34, suicide is the second-leading cause of death".

Bourdain says that it was through his relationship with Argento, he became aware of the way things were for women, particularly in the entertainment industry.

"Every time we flew through Atlanta and had an hour between flights, I would get a look from him".

President Donald Trump told reporters as he left the White House that Bourdain's death was "very shocking".

News of Anthony Bourdain's death continues to shake fans of the influential chef, author and TV personality. "As any chef will tell you, our entire service economy-the restaurant business as we know it-in most American cities, would collapse overnight without Mexican workers".

The chef was found unresponsive in his hotel room on location in France on Friday morning by his close friend Éric Ripert.

Before his death, Bourdain was also supporting his girlfriend Asia Argento after she told The New Yorker she had been raped by Harvey Weinstein.

His 1999 New Yorker article, "Don't Eat Before Reading This", brought readers into the NY kitchens where Bourdain worked for years.

Tweeting her article in October previous year, Bourdain addressed his girlfriend and her allegations at the once-powerful Hollywood producer.

In recent episodes of his show Parts Unknown, he used his platform to denounce the racism and xenophobia of the Trump administration, and to highlight the unique contributions of different immigrant groups across the American landscape.

In his book Medium Raw, the Parts Unknown presenter previously revealed being "aimless and regularly suicidal".

Bourdain was never too far from controversies. It was in Borneo that Bourdain was asked and complied with a request from villagers to plunge a spear into the heart of a pig! "Filming a food show on Azerbaijan's occupied territory is an insult to one million Azerbaijani refugees who were forcefully expelled from their homes".
