Things Anthony Bourdain Will Always Be Known For

He had hosted the Emmy-winning "Parts Unknown" on CNN for the last five years, and he was in Strasbourg, France, to film an upcoming episode of the series.

Following official confirmation of Bourdain's death from his employer, CNN, Argento took to Twitter on Friday to pay tribute. "We'll miss him", Obama wrote on Twitter, accompanying the photo, taken by his White House photographer Pete Souza. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time", the network said.

Since the news of his death is making its rounds across the internet, celebrities and friends of Bourdain are speaking out about the tragedy on various social media networks.

"It is with great respect for the leader, the author, the TV entertainer, the visionary Anthony Bourdain that I express all my condolences to his family and to the anonymous people around the world who he made dream so much", Nasti said in a statement Saturday.

"Yeah, I think it's very sad". News, Sandra Lee said, "I am shocked".

"At this stage, we have no reason to suspect foul play", prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny du Fayel said.

He had been dating Italian actress Asia Argento since 2017 and became an outspoken advocate for the #MeToo movement after she revealed she had been sexually assaulted by the movie producer Harvey Weinstein. The cause of death is suicide, CNN said. Jamie Oliver wrote on Instagram that Bourdain "really broke the mould. he leaves chefs and fans around the world with a massive foodie hole that simply can't be replaced".


Gauri Devidayal, who along with her husband runs the popular Mumbai restaurant, The Table, regularly followed Bourdain's shows.

The 61-year-old Bourdain was the latest in the line of several celebrities who have committed suicide due to mental issues. "His brilliant fearless spirit touched and inspired many, and his generosity knew no bounds".

Widely loved and rarely afraid to speak his mind, he mixed a coarseness and whimsical sense of adventurousness, true to the rock "n" roll music he loved.

You might remember when food critic Marilyn Hagerty's candid, mostly positive review of Olive Garden for the Grand Forks Herald went viral back in 2012.

"He was a great man and I cherished the opportunity meeting him", Najmi said. "I enjoyed his show".
