Anthony Bourdain's dark and lonely final months

Anthony Bourdain's dark and lonely final months

Bourdain, a longtime staff editor at The New York Times, told the paper, "He is absolutely the last person in the world I would have ever dreamed would do something like this". "Money beyond his wildest dreams", she said.

The famed cook, writer and host of the CNN series "Parts Unknown" killed himself Friday in a luxury hotel in the ancient village of Kaysersberg, Christian de Rocquigny, the prosecutor of Colmar in France's eastern Alsace region, told The Associated Press in a phone interview. He promoted his Mexican-born sous chef, the late Carlos Llaguno Garcia, to run two of his NY restaurants and complained loudly about the United States' "ridiculously hypocritical attitudes" toward immigration. "I plan to get a Du Kefeng tattoo, in the original Mandarin, as soon as possible".

In 2016, President Barack Obama dined with Bourdain in Hanoi for an episode of the program. For him, food, though a huge pleasure, was more importantly a storytelling tool, and a passport to the world at large. He'd been working on an episode for the 12th season of his CNN show, "Parts Unknown".

Before his death, Bourdain was also supporting his girlfriend Asia Argento after she told The New Yorker she had been raped by Harvey Weinstein. "Even though he was a celebrity chef, he was always a strong presence in the kitchen, which every chef should emulate".

Ripert was in France with his friend filming an upcoming episode of Bourdain's award-winning show.

According to reports, Bourdain hanged himself.

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.

"I am proud and honoured to know you. I met one extraordinary woman with an extraordinary and painful story, who introduced me to a lot of other women with extraordinary stories and suddenly it was personal".

Schroeder runs the kind of place Bourdain loved to find - a small, out of the way restaurant with simple but memorable food.

"It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain. And once you were drawn in, it was about the experience, it was about the connection, it was about his interaction - his interactions with people". "We'll miss him", Obama tweeted.

After Bourdain's death, Ms Hagerty thanked the chef for celebrating her work, rather than mocking her with the rest of the world.

"He had this unique ability to cut through the noise and go straight to humanity", Les Nordhauser, a Southeast Asia-based producer who worked Bourdain in 2008 in the production of No Reservations, told Coconuts Bangkok earlier today.
