The moment Anthony Bourdain's life started to unravel

The moment Anthony Bourdain's life started to unravel

Bourdain, who died Friday in France in an apparent suicide at age 61, was an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump's immigration policies and a fierce defender of Hispanic workers.

Bourdain, a longtime staff editor at The New York Times, told the paper, "He is absolutely the last person in the world I would have ever dreamed would do something like this".

In an earlier interview on the road with People, Bourdain said he had no plans to retire. "Money beyond his wildest dreams", she continued.

"Tony had been in a dark mood these past couple of days..."

Bourdain, the host of "Parts Unknown" and "No Reservations", was found dead in a hotel room in France on Friday.

It was a lifestyle that, while undeniably glamorous, took a toll, he suggested in a 2017 New Yorker profile.

"Every time we flew through Atlanta and had an hour between flights, I would get a look from him".

Fans of Anthony Bourdain have been joined by former United States president Barack Obama and UK celebrity chefs in mourning his loss.

We spoke to a few Indian chefs about the man who brought cultures together.

In recent episodes of his show Parts Unknown, he used his platform to denounce the racism and xenophobia of the Trump administration, and to highlight the unique contributions of different immigrant groups across the American landscape.

IN RECENT years, after a second divorce, Bourdain had an ongoing relationship with Asia Argento, the Italian filmmaker, artist and now vindicated accuser of ex-producer and serial rapist Harvey Weinstein.

And while Schroeder may not have known much about Bourdain beforehand, he realized the day Bourdain came to his restaurant that he was in the presence of a culinary superstar.

"I'm going to pretty much die in the saddle", he told the magazine in February while filming his show Parts Unknown.

According to Manu Chandra, chef of Monkey Bar, Bourdain created a turning point for the way chefs behave. "But I hope that I'll be able to say that was daddy then, this is daddy now - that I'm alive, and living, and hope". We was set to eat dinner with friend Eric Ripert on Thursday night, but he did not show up.

It was one of his last meals. But you know, I also don't have that many regrets either. "RIP Anthony Bourdain", Lotus of Siam wrote in a Facebook post on June 8. "You only saw beauty in all people".

Closer to home, Bourdain was an early supporter of #MeToo, noting he'd met several women who'd told him very bad stories of abuse. While there, he wrote an essay on the behind-the-scenes of the restaurant world, which led to the memoir "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly", turning him into a celebrity chef. I really can't talk about him.He was brilliant and sharp and amusing.
