Not surprisingly, it was on the road, in eastern France, that Bourdain, 61, was found unresponsive Friday morning by good friend and chef Eric Ripert. As "Parts Unknown" producer Chris Collins told The New Yorker a year ago, Bourdain came to insist that episodes include more footage of daily life than that of him eating, adopting a mantra of "more B [-roll], less me".

After his body was found in a French hotel on Friday morning, Bourdain's death was confirmed to be suicide-related, according to his employer CNN.

"His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller", the statement continued. "We'll miss him." Photographed by Pete Souza, Obama's official White House photographer, the duo could be seen sitting on plastic stools and enjoying local beer.

CNN said its thoughts are with his daughter and the rest of Bourdain's family at this incredibly hard time.

"His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds", Argento said on Twitter. As John Birdsall once put it, "All of us who try to write intelligently about food, even Bourdain's critics, are working in a tradition he's built".

ESPN Insider Says LeBron James Will Meet With Warriors This Offseason
Seems like a reasonable bet that James, long thought to be the real GM in Cleveland , didn't sign off on that particular trade. The Warriors franchise has been very successful recently as they have won two of their last three finals appearances.

He irreverently detailed this rock "n" rollercoaster of a career in his breakout 2000 best-seller, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, the first of more than a dozen books he authored.

"Anthony I am so mad at you", Rose tweeted. To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. "I want to extend my condolences, and also to the family of Kate Spade".

"He loved food. He wrote about food". I think he showed Queens in all its uniqueness, the people and the community.

Argento directed the mostly recently aired episode of Parts Unknown, filmed in Hong Kong, which is set to air on Sunday, June 10. You know, that was daddy, ain't no doubt about it.

Countless other chefs who looked up to Bourdain also took it upon themselves to pay tribute to the late TV personality with many calling him a "rare talent" and a "special individual" who left the earth far too soon, under such incredibly sad circumstances.

Bourdain was born in NY, grew up in New Jersey and called himself a bad New Yorker - admitting that he tended to revisit the same places he had been going to for years.

Starting his career in various NY restaurants including the Supper Club and One Fifth Avenue, in 1998 Bourdain became executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles.

As Maria Bustillos wrote for Eater past year, before becoming a celebrity TV personality in his own right, Anthony Bourdain very publicly could not stand Emeril Lagasse, or at least Emeril's cheerful public persona.
