Anthony Bourdain Dead at 61

TV host and chef Anthony Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room Friday at the age of 61.

Touting his global impact as a "unique storyteller", CNN remembered Bourdain in a statement Friday morning as someone whose talents had been an enduring source of inspiration for years. "His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much", a network rep said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time".

Regularly labeled a "rock star" of the culinary world, Bourdain transcended the kitchen to become a best-selling food, fiction, and nonfiction writer, before finding global fame fronting various award-winning cooking and travel series.

I first met Anthony Bourdain in 2005.

Along with this he also shared a snap of Bourdain from his award-winning show Parts Unknown.

The Smithsonian once called Bourdain "the Elvis of bad boy chefs" and "the original rock star" of the culinary world.

This news was confirmed by CNN in a statement. Bourdain quickly became one of the principal faces of the network and one of the linchpins of its prime-time schedule.

Bourdain told the New Yorker in 2017 that his idea for "Parts Unknown", which was in its 11th season, was traveling, eating and doing whatever he wanted.

While accepting the Peabody award in 2013, Bourdain described how he approached his work. What do you like to cook? One tweet said, "Can we use the word "rapist" now?"

His death comes just days after fashion designer Kate Spade hung herself in an apparent suicide at her Manhattan apartment.

Suicide rates rose in almost every US state from 1999 to 2016, according to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Suicide is a growing problem in the United States. Almost 45,000 people committed suicide in 2016, making it one of three leading causes of death in the country, along with Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses. An online chat also is available.
