Anthony Bourdain's fans leave tributes at the restaurant where it all began

Barack Obama pays tribute to celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain

The sudden passing of Anthony Bourdain, the world famous chef, author and TV host, left his fans across the globe in a state of shock.

"What I do is not complicated", Bourdain told the New York Times in 2005.

The mom added that the funeral plans for her son are in the hands of his estranged wife, Ottavia Busia Bourdain, because Ottavia is legally still his next of kin. "Money beyond his wildest dreams", she continued.

Ripert, who was in France to film an upcoming episode of Parts Unknown with Bourdain, told Gladys that "Tony had been in a dark mood" in the days leading up to his death.

On Friday, Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room in France while working on his CNN series on culinary traditions around the world.

Four days before his death, he dined at French chef Julien Schroeder at his restaurant in Colmar.

"I ate at Johnny Rockets in an airport once and it opened up an abyss of depression and self-loathing, a spiral of self-hatred, rage, and despair that lasted weeks", he told the publication.

Remembering the rare dinner that made headlines back in 2016, and his memories in people's hearts, the former POTUS added, "He taught us about food - but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together".

Anthony Bourdain had an outsized impact on the life of Jason Rezaian, the journalist who was jailed by Iran shortly after filming an episode of Bourdain's "Parts Unknown".

IN RECENT years, after a second divorce, Bourdain had an ongoing relationship with Asia Argento, the Italian filmmaker, artist and now vindicated accuser of ex-producer and serial rapist Harvey Weinstein.

"The new celebrity chef culture is a remarkable and admittedly annoying phenomenon", he wrote.

Kitchen Confidential could be considered a book about the long and perilous road Bourdain took to become a chef at a fancy restaurant in Manhattan.

It was one of his last meals. To meet you and to instantly know you are exactly how I thought you would be.

Anthony Bourdain had no qualms about addressing his past. Wang writes that he was still in college and didn't even know who Bourdain was at the time.

In his acceptance speech, made by video, Bourdain said, "The world has visited many awful things on the Palestinian people, none more shameful than robbing them of their basic humanity". "He touched the lives of chefs, everyday people, drug addicts, everybody". "You can get a master's in diplomacy, but that doesn't mean anything until you go out and engage with people". "The idea that chefs are sex symbols would be hilarious to anyone who's ever dated one or been married to one", Bourdain wrote. "To make us a little less afraid of the unknown", Barack Obama tweeted.
