Bourdain, 61, whose career catapulted him from washing dishes at NY restaurants to dining in Vietnam with President Barack Obama, hanged himself in a hotel room.

The owner of a noodle restaurant in Hanoi where Anthony Bourdain enjoyed a $6 meal with Barack Obama in 2016 says she is shocked over the chef's death.

Bourdain's mother told The Post, "He was an incredible guy". "Mr Ripert thought it was odd".

The famous chef, food writer and television host died on Friday (local time) of a suspected suicide, in a luxury hotel in the French village of Kaysersberg.

Ruth Carhuff recalled Bourdain's interview with Iranian-American journalist Jason Rezaian on "Parts Unknown".

"Statistics show that if we can reach troubled people before, even in the midst of suicide ideation, there is a good chance they can be helped", said Schumer. "But we didn't think much of it".

(CNN) - Anthony Bourdain's fans turned the restaurant where he shot to fame as a chef into a memorial, leaving roses and notes at New York's Brasserie Les Halles. As you may know, this is the second celebrity suicide in the last week, as Kate Spade also committed suicide by hanging. And provided the phone number for the suicide hotlines in the USA and United Kingdom.

But he thrived in restaurant kitchens, and that work led him to the Culinary Institute of America, where he graduated in 1978.

He followed that book with A Cook's Tour, also a TV series on the Food Network, in which he travelled the globe embracing authentic food experiences - including a Glasgow chippie, where he waxed lyrical on the joys of a deep-fried "king rib" (no relation to any actual ribs), a deep-fried Mars bar and deep-fried pizza.




"Some, of course, like to claim that Mexicans are stealing American jobs", Bourdain said in 2014. "We need to see", he tweeted in March 2012.

In late May, Bourdain filmed a Parts Unknown episode in Hong Kong.

Still, the staff figured maybe Bourdain has just gone to a different restaurant for the night. According to her, Bourdain was giddy a week before his death in France. "I started taking drugs as soon as I encountered them", the chef said.

The Senator cited three successful federal suicide prevention programs.

On the morning of his death, Eric waited for his friend to come downstairs as they had a full day of filming planned.

Reports from the state Department of Health show that suicides declined here for the first time since 2011, dropping 13 percent in one year, from 9.7 fatalities per 100,000 people age10 and older in 2015 to 8.4 in 2016, .

Now, more details surrounding his final days have surfaced.

"This is exclusively to give the family more information about the motivations and the cause of death", the prosecutor said. "This is all in addition to looking for warning signs and encouraging those suffering to seek professional help".

A self-acknowledged reformed addict of heroin and cocaine - "I would have robbed your medicine cabinet had I been invited to your house", he confessed in a 2013 Ask Me Anything session on Reddit - Bourdain was loved by those in the food world and beyond.
