Anthony Bourdain, Chef And TV Personality, Dead At 61

Hotel staff told the New York Times that Ripert contacted hotel reception when he couldn't reach Bourdain on his cell phone.

Anthony Bourdain, the affable American celebrity chef and author who shared his voracious curiosity for the world's food and cultures with millions through his popular television shows, died at the age of 61.

Bourdain's mother, Gladys Bourdain, told The New York Times that Ripert had told her that "Tony had been in a dark mood these past couple of days", but that she had no idea why he might have chose to kill himself.

In an interview with People, Lakshmi says that she was "really shocked and saddened because he had been doing really well". "Money beyond his wildest dreams", she said. "They said we're going to eat the same thing as Mr. Bourdain", Schroeder said.

"I was in a cranky mood after my last restaurant closed and felt no reason not to tell the truth about a business I both love and have mixed emotions about", Bourdain told CBS2 in 1999.

According to her, Bourdain was giddy a week before his death in France. "Even though he was a celebrity chef, he was always a strong presence in the kitchen, which every chef should emulate". "I know it's been a couple of days, but it is still so raw".

The host said though Bourdain is known for his "rough and rash" attitude, the chef was also "really tender and sweet".

The chef used a belt to hang himself.

King also met Bourdain while filming "Kitchen Confidential", a 2005 sitcom based on his bestselling memoir.

He graduated from the Dwight Englewood school in in 1973 and then graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 1978, moving onto several New York City restaurants.

Schroeder now proudly - sadly - displays what he thinks was one of Bourdain's last postings on Instagram, a shot of the choucrote he served the TV personality he instantly liked. "[It's] hard to imagine that he's not just off on some faraway journey, hard to imagine that he'll not return with new stories to tell, new foods to share", he added.

"We thought it was unusual", waiter Maxime Voinson told The New York Times, recalling Bourdain's no-show the night before his suicide.

Anthony Bourdain had revealed in the past that he was "regularly suicidal" after his separated from his first wife.

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".

Trump has said the wall is needed to keep immigrants and drugs out of the USA and his policies are created to keep the country safe.
