He died in France, while working on an episode of his CNN show, "Parts Unknown".

Olivier Nasti, the chef and owner of Le Chambard, the luxury hotel in Kaysersberg where Bourdain took his life, paid tribute to his colleague Saturday.

New Day co-anchor John Berman also told viewers at the beginning of the special tribute that many at CNN received the news in the early morning hours as Berman said he found out about Bourdain's death at 4:45 a.m.

Anthony Bourdain, the chef who became a world-traveling storyteller, has died at age 61, according to CNN. "His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds", the Italian actress wrote.

Anthony Bourdain's dying is the worst news of 2018. "He was my love, my rock, my protector", she said on Twitter. On June 9, Prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny confirmed the upsetting news about the celebrity chef's suicide, leaving many family members, friends and fans speechless. "I am beyond devastated", she added. Obama and Bourdain discussed Vietnamese-American relations, among other things, while dining on grilled pork, noodles and beer at a small family-run restaurant in Hanoi.

The concept was that I had gone off the rails and was living in a one room apartment with about 100 cats and now spent my days yelling at a TV playing our old network.

Anthony Bourdain was one of the few journalists/writers to travel to the Middle East & deliberately look past the stereotypes created by the West.

In 2013, Peabody Award judges honored Bourdain and "Parts Unknown" for "expanding our palates and horizons in equal measure".

On Friday, CNN's website was draped in black in memory of Anthony Bourdain. "I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine", Argento tweeted Friday.

Important note: If you or a loved one is feeling distressed, please remember help is available through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. "And makes me very sad for him to have - to have succumbed to that".

If you don't believe media representation matters, look at the Tweets from the Arab world and Muslim world, gutted over Anthony Bourdain - who used his platform to highlight our common humanity.

Anthony Bourdain's girlfriend Asia Argento spoke out following his shocking death from an apparent suicide on Friday.
