"But we didn't think much of it". Mr. Bourdain knew the chef, Monsieur Nasti; he knew the kitchen.

"When he goes somewhere, he always finds the place where he can find the root of the culture", Mecinas said. He then also missed a breakfast with Ripert on Friday morning, which caused his friend to grow concerned.

"They won't be shipping his remains back for a couple of days because of formalities", said Gladys Bourdain, 83. He was found hanging from his bathrobe belt in the bathroom of his hotel room.

Blood was drawn from the body, and results of screenings for drugs or other toxins will follow in coming days.

Anthony's death was a shock to many who knew him.

Four days before his death, he dined at French chef Julien Schroeder at his restaurant in Colmar. He was somebody who was generous with his time.

When the crew heard of the news, everyone "just sat on the ground", master butcher Christine Speisser, who was to show Bourdain around the market, told People.

He was the host of CNN's "Parts Unknown", had written a best-seller about his time as a chef, and received countless awards and nominations for his work throughout the late 2000s and 2010s.

"He praised our bun cha dish and its fish-sauce broth, he loved Vietnamese food", she said. I really can't talk about him.He was brilliant and sharp and amusing.

"I looked in a mirror and I saw somebody worth saving, or that I wanted to at least try real hard and save", he said.

But on Thursday night, when Mr. Bourdain didn't show up for dinner, he said: "Mr. Ripert thought it was unusual".

Argento and Bourdain were seen together apparently happy as recent as two weeks ago, but questions about their relationship had emerged after Argento was pictured walking around Rome with journalist Hugo Clement on Monday. At that point, wrote Bourdain, "my nightly attempts at suicide ended".

"I've spent such a lot of time in the developing world, I was caught in a war in Beirut, been in Liberia, the Congo, Iraq and Libya and realised how fast things can get bad, how arbitrary good fortune and cruelty and death", he said in the interview.

ANTHONY Bourdain might've been best known for his ability to cook and review food like no one else but it was the way he never shied away from addressing his dark past that made him a breath of fresh air for most of his fans. "To make us a little less afraid of the unknown", Barack Obama tweeted.

Olivier Nasti, the chef and owner of Le Chambard, the luxury hotel in where Bourdain took his life, paid tribute to his colleague yesterday.
