Asia Argento 'beyond devastated' after Anthony Bourdain's death

  • Meal time Anthony Bourdain dined out at Wistub La Petite Venise a few days before his death

For him, food, though a huge pleasure, was more importantly a storytelling tool, and a passport to the world at large.

He never minced words or lied about his past, regularly speaking about his heroin addiction and the times he thought about ending his own life.

When the star of Parts Unknown didn't come down from his hotel room for a rustic French dinner Thursday night, it was the first sign something was very wrong.

"Loneliness, separation from my daughter, existential despair".

Others said he changed the way some of the most marginalized countries are viewed.

A close friend and French chef, Eric Ripert, found Bourdain unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning. 'If I'm unhappy, it's a failure of imagination'. Saul Montiel, executive chef at the Mexican restaurant Cantina Roof Top in Manhattan, called Bourdain "one of the few chefs that valued the work of Latinos in the kitchen".

Rest in peace, Anthony Bourdain.

In an interview withThe Guardian in 2013, Bourdain admitted he took drugs as early as he could.

"I enjoyed his show, he was quite a character", Trump said.

Ripert, who was in France to film an upcoming episode of Parts Unknown with Bourdain, told Gladys that "Tony had been in a dark mood" in the days leading up to his death.

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

BOURDAIN WAS no respecter of borders, and throughout his career, he was vocal about the absurdity of dividing people from each other for arbitrary reasons. He just felt so much passion for what he did and what he saw. Next time you walk down the street, cheer up someone you don't know.

As for Africa, Bourdain declared the continent, "one of the best arguments for travel I can think of", and lauded its ability to exist as a "functioning multicultural, multilingual, extraordinarily TOLERANT society". I became a dad in my 50s. "But there's been nothing yet", he said.

Bourdain was a fierce advocate for Rezaian while he was imprisoned.

"Anthony was my best friend", Ripert wrote.

Unwavering, Bourdain withdrew the years of praise he had bestowed on Batali.

What do we do besides talk more and get informed? He was dating actress and director Asia Argento at the time of his death. The book expanded on a 1999 New Yorker article that he had sent to The New Yorker about the underbelly of the restaurant world and its deceptions.

"I am proud and honoured to know you".

Bourdain and Argento confirmed their relationship in February 2017.

Marilyn Hagerty was an octogenarian columnist for the Grand Forks Herald when her 2012 rave review for a new Olive Garden in her small South Dakota town went viral. The 41-year-old singer was suffering from depression.

Bourdain defended her viral review, which earnt the food reviewer a trip to New York City. You wouldn't have seen a problem we had a chance to do a photo with them. "We need to see", he tweeted in March 2012.

President Donald Trump told reporters as he left the White House that Bourdain's death was "very shocking". And I was like, 'All right, man, we're going to Popeye's'. A Vassar dropout, he started working at a seafood restaurant in Provincetown, Mass., and fell in love with the pirate glamour of the kitchen underworld.

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.

"I gave up on that".

"Listen, I lived there for five years - nothing is done quickly". I might have deluded myself into thinking that I'd be happy in a hammock or gardening.

"For me, it was something exceptional", she told People. "It was just pure appreciation of life, living and drinking well and eating well".
