  • Anthony Bourdain seemed 'cheerful' at work this week, says an onlooker

Bourdain was on assignment for "Parts Unknown" when he was found dead in his hotel room in Paris.

"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.

In a statement the network said: "It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain". His talents never ceases to amaze us and we will miss him very much. And as The Times obituary said, "as an author and then a host", he had redefined "the staid genres of food writing and food-tourism shows with an inquisitive but rebellious image that endeared him to fellow chefs, restaurant-goers and travelers".

CNN said its thoughts are with his daughter and the rest of Bourdain's family at this incredibly hard time.

"Anthony was my best friend".

British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay took to his Twitter handle and wrote, "Stunned and saddened by the loss of Anthony Bourdain". Just last month, Bourdain applauded Argento for the speech she gave at Cannes, discussing her personal experience with the #MeToo movement, as she's one of many women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment.

Éric Ripert, a famed chef in his own right whose flagship NY restaurant Le Bernardin holds three Michelin stars, honored Bourdain after his death by suicide at the age of 61. I pray he is at peace from the bottom of my heart.

"One of my great joys in places that I love, and have come to love, is to sit and watch daily life", he added, in a previously unpublished part of the interview.

The 11th season of his Emmy Award-winning show, CNN's Parts Unknown, premiered in April and featured his visits to Armenia, Uruguay and West Virginia, among other destinations. Remember that help is a phone call away U.S.:1-800-273-TALK UK: "116 123 (sic)".

Meanwhile, business analyst Darren Rovell tweeted, "Devastated to learn of Anthony Bourdain, whom I admired from afar".
