Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain died at the age of 61

"I don't know", said Newnam. "I've lost a dear friend today, and we mourn with the rest of the world". That said, he had a tremendous impact on my life. "What do you like to cook?' And everywhere in the world we go and ask these simple questions, we tend to get some really astonishing answers", he said. He was a attractive writer, an empathetic storyteller, a high priest of travel, and the ultimate rebel. His insatiable curiosity to learn and taste the world, his expansive palate, his love of words and food, both of which superbly complemented each other - all of that started in Jersey.

"We are constantly asking ourselves, first and foremost, what is the most (messed) up thing we can do next week?" he said in a 2014 interview with the AP.

Rose McGowan has shared an emotionally charged video after learning of Anthony Bourdain's death, urging people to not make a "permanent solution to a temporary problem" if they're struggling with mental health.

"We heard the news of Bourdain's death when we were in a work meeting and the entire room fell quiet". That was very shocking when I woke up this morning. That was the moment Bourdain entered my life.

"I looked in a mirror and I saw somebody worth saving, or that I least wanted to try real hard and save", he said. There were no moments of dinning in touristy restaurants that no real traveler would want to step foot in.

"He truly brought the love of cooking to American homes that no one had ever seen before", she said.

That figure still ranks only 38th among states , but the state's 40 percent increase since 1999 was the eighth-steepest rise. The Minnesota Health Department has increased efforts to identify at-risk communities to help reduce suicides.

"When he narrated a story, you felt like you were right there with him, and he inspired you to travel", chef Akasha Richmond of AR Cucina and Akasha in Culver City tells L.A. Weekly. He seemed like the kind of guy who didn't seek out the underbelly of a place but still managed to end up there regardless of his actions. His bad boy exterior only barely hid the fact that he was very deeply a humanist.

Bourdain was a gifted storyteller who wrote eight books.

In a Melbourne episode of No Reservations filmed in 2009, he explored Sydney Road, Chinatown and the mod-Lebanese delights of Rumi.

"If you think about who the audience is and what their expectations might be, I think that's the road to badness and mediocrity", he told the AP.

Traversing the globe meant visiting areas of conflict and also intense poverty, and Bourdain didn't shy away from either. I've crossed the line, I have. Bourdain's assistant Laurie Woolever would not comment when reached by The Associated Press. "I gave up on that. I stand unhesitatingly and unwaveringly with the women".

Bourdain committed suicide in France and the president was magnanimous in offering his condolences.
