One of the most influential chefs in the world, Anthony Bourdain was a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.
He leaves behind his 11 year old daughter Ariane Bourdain.
"Though I've spent half my life watching people, guiding them, trying to anticipate their moods, motivations and actions, running from them, manipulating and being manipulated by them, they remain a mystery to me", Bourdain mused in Kitchen Confidential.
As well as hosting a number of TV shows, he was also a best-selling food, travel and fiction author.
"Thoughts and love to all his family and close friends xxxxxxxxxxx". I come from a place where you don't know your neighbors.
It was a lifestyle that, while undeniably glamorous, took a toll, he suggested in a 2017 New Yorker profile.
"I stand unhesitatingly and unwaveringly with the women", he wrote. It is there that he said he first developed a taste for truly good food. "His outsized personality will live on through the many people he has inspired and touched through his writing and television shows".
After a start washing dishes in a restaurant, the New York-born Bourdain gradually rose through the ranks to become a chef. Then we chatted for a little while about making TV shows. Argento wrote on Twitter on Friday that Bourdain "was my love, my rock, my protector".
The chef hostedParts Unknown which aired on CNN.
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. The book drew from his days on the line at the New York City restaurant Les Halles, letting readers in on the gritty underbelly of the raucous and fast-paced restaurant world. "Of all the professions, after all, few people are less suited to be suddenly thrown into the public eye than chefs". "I've been many times and it's still thrilling". Anthony Bourdain felt like an outsider, like he'd seen things you weren't ready for.
