Anthony Bourdain remembered for glowing visit to Houston

CNN reports that Bourdain was found dead on Friday morning in a luxury hotel in France.

"He taught us about food - but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together".

Mel Mecinas, an executive chef in Scottsdale, Arizona, who was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, remembers when Bourdain featured his home state on "Parts Unknown". Anthony's depression didn't let him, he put down his armor, and that was very much his choice.

Obama's appearance with Bourdain was one of the many ways he sought to reach new audiences through pop culture and media during his presidency.

"And that you never really know what's going on in somebody else's head".

"Pretty sure I read it in like three hours". The best-selling food, fiction and nonfiction author was 61 years old.

He also said he would donate 100 percent of the restaurant chain's net sales on Friday to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

"When you ask everybody and not just people you might suspect, you double the number you detect", he said.

In the heartbreaking statement, which Argento shared on Twitter, she wrote: "Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did".

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, help is not far away. "I looked at him in the eyes and said, this is something we will always be thankful for, Tony".

Bourdain's mother told the New York Post that Ripert told her Bourdain had been in a "dark mood" in the couple of days leading up to his shocking death. "It doesn´t protect you from suicide", Jodi Gold, director of the Gold Center for Mind Health and Wellness, said on CNN. "My love and prayers are with his family, friends and loved ones". In the 1999 New Yorker piece "Don't Eat Before Reading This", that would eventually become Kitchen Confidential, he exposed the dirty secrets of high-end dining, warning customers never to eat fish on a Monday and venting his spleen about brunch, vegetarianism, and people who order their steaks well-done. His CNN series "Parts Unknown" took viewers to the hidden wonders of the world: the best greasy spoon in a crowded, narrow street in Yangon, Burma; the teeming street markets of Lagos, Nigeria; the country within a city that is Koreatown in Los Angeles. "The world has lost a brilliant human being and I've lost one of the few people I could talk to about some of this stuff". "But when Anthony Bourdain wasn't angry at the world for being less ideal than he felt it ought to be, he was in love with it. While it's been nothing but good for business - and for me personally - many of us in the life can't help snickering about it", he wrote.
