Anthony Bourdain, the talented chef, storyteller, and writer was found unresponsive in his Strasbourg, France hotel room early this morning by his close friend Eric Ripert. He was 61. Bourdain had been in France working on an upcoming episode of CNN’s award-winning ‘Parts Unknown.’ The network confirmed this morning that he took his own life.
Bourdain was truly a citizen of the world and was as exuberant as he was skilled. He opened up our world by bringing it into our living rooms and did so in a candid, honest and humorous way. There isn’t an arrangement of words to describe how much Anthony will be missed.
