TV show host, author, and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain was found dead in his hotel in France while filming an episode of CNN's Parts Unknown.
Bourdain, 61, was found unresponsive in his room Friday morning by close friend and fellow celebrity chef Eric Ripert. Bourdain's show Parts Unknown is currently airing its 11th season. He was working on an upcoming episode in Strasbourg, France.
"It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain," CNN said in a statement Friday morning. "His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time."
Bourdain's career revolutionized both the restaurant industry and the concept of the celebrity chef. He changed the way people thought about the restaurant industry, being a chef, and global food culture.
