I immediately thought of Eric and his deep friendship with Tony when I heard the news today.
We spoke to a few Indian chefs about the man who brought cultures together.
"This leads us to suspect that not much preparation and premeditation went into the act, and leads us more in the direction of an impulsive act", said Mr.de Rocquigny. "We'll miss him", he said.
"Mr. Ripert thought it was odd", he added, referring to Eric Ripert, the renowned French chef who would find close friend Bourdain upstairs the next morning. French authorities later confirmed Bourdain's cause of death as suicide, revealing he'd used a belt from a hotel bathrobe to hang himself and that there was no evidence of foul play.
"I'm going to pretty much die in the saddle", he told the magazine in February while filming his show Parts Unknown.
(Can you see a theme developing?) While many would turn their noses up at these foods, Bourdain loved them, not remotely concerned about what the hell they were made of.
He later compared himself to "Quasimodo", adding: 'I feel kind of like a freak and I feel kind of isolated. This was also just days after Bourdain bought a moody painting with the ominous title "The world is falling down, I am learning to live with it". "That was very shocking", Trump said, speaking to reporters outside the White House. 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.
Bourdain, who was found dead of an apparent suicide in a hotel room in France, inspired a generation of new cooks, professional or not, to get into cooking, and experiment with different foods from around the world.
Waiter Maxime Voinson from Le Chambard, the hotel where Anthony died, told the NY times, "it was very strange". His walk of fame began in 2000 with the publication of "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly". He eventually became executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles in 1998. The best-seller was hailed by critics for its witty, energetically written look behind-the-scenes of the restaurant industry.
Four days before his death, he dined at French chef Julien Schroeder at his restaurant in Colmar.
Rest in peace to the revered chef, journalist, and cultural reporter.
Joe Cummings described the photo: "Beer and lao khao at the end of the karaoke shoot for Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown, 2014".
Barack Obama has paid a heartfelt tribute to Anthony Bourdain on Twitter. 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!
In 2002, as Bourdain became an global celebrity, he explained in a live Washington Post chat what it was like to move from "chef" to "celebrity chef". The Foreign Ministry spokesman of Azerbaijan told Agence France-Presse.
