From Punjab to Rajasthan, Anthony Bourdain’s rendezvous with Indian cuisine

A bestselling author, chef and entrepreneur, Bourdain was discovered by Eric Ripert-Bourdain's friend and the chef and partner at New York's Le Bernadin-Friday morning.

Anthony Bourdain, the gifted chef, storyteller and writer who took TV viewers around the world to explore culture, cuisine and the human condition for almost two decades, has died.

"His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller", the network said in a statement.

The American celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, host of the popular CNN food-and-travel show Parts Unknown, has died at the age of 61, the television network said on Friday. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time". You show me hospitality when I travel? Almost 45,000 people committed suicide in 2016, making it one of three leading causes of death that are on the rise, along with Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses.

Bourdain was understood to have been in France working on an upcoming episode of his award-winning CNN series.

Bourdain joined CNN five years ago.

Bourdain gained notoriety for his writing in 1997, when The New Yorker published his article "Don't Eat Before Reading This", an amusing read where he talked about life as a chef.

He went on to write numerous memoirs, cookbooks and travel books including: Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook, A Cook's Tour, The Nasty Bits, Bone in the Throat, Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook, and No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach.

In 2013, both Bourdain and CNN took a risk by bringing him to the news network still best known for breaking news and headlines.

Another well-known figure, Kate Spade, also was found dead in an apparent suicide by hanging Tuesday.

Season 11 of "Parts Unknown" premiered on CNN last month. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline provides 24/7, free, and confidential support for people in distress, and prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones.
