Anthony Bourdain's Mom Confirms His 'Dark Mood' Before Death

Right at the time Anthony Bourdain, Chef And TV Personality, Dead At 61
Herman Weaver | 11 June, 2018, 12:35

The 42-year-old actress said that she is beyond devasted after the death of Bourdain. Success beyond his wildest dreams. "I'd love to have her a continuing director".

Bourdain committed suicide while in France filming an episode of his Emmy-winning CNN food and travel program Parts Unknown, the network said Friday.

Bourdain was born in New York City and raised in Leonia, New Jersey.

"All I can tell you is this: I got off of heroin in the 1980s".

Former US president Barack Obama also took to Twitter and posted a throwback picture with the chef.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN probably did more than any other chef to bring about the culinary renaissance now underway in the U.S. His books on the restaurant industry, like Kitchen Confidential, were half gonzo autobiography, half user guide, and all irreverent humor, spoken in the salty patois of kitchen subculture.

On Sunday, June 10, CNN has confirmed it will air a new episode of "Parts Unknown" set in Berlin.

In recent months, Bourdain had emerged as an ally for the #MeToo movement, as his girlfriend Argento came forward to accuse disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of rape.

"There are many chefs", he said, "that never recognize the hard work of the Hispanics".

Bourdain's death revealed another talent most of us knew nothing about.

Pretty much every night, Bourdain and Ripert, the executive chef at Manhattan's famed Le Bernadin, would dine together at the hotel's quaint bistro, the Winstub, known for its foie gras and charcuterie.

Bolduan: "One of his friends described him to me as a freak of nature, a force of nature, unexplainable. You will always travel with me".

Anthony Bourdain had no qualms about addressing his past.

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 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. "We've been with him on this journey for a couple of years and we're going to keep going".

In the days leading to Bourdain's death, his colleagues and restaurant staff he met during his trip posted photos of him with them.

The beloved chef introduced the world to Thai street food scene in an episode of No Reservations (2009: Season 5 Episode 16), where he tried rice gruel, and his team filmed simple table condiments we take for granted in a newly alluring way. "We'll miss him", Obama tweeted. He recounted getting drunk and stoned - "the kind of drunk where you've got to put a hand over one eye to see straight" - and said he would "peel out" in his 4×4 on his way back from nightly trips to the brothels.
