Celebrities share stories, mourn the loss of Anthony Bourdain

The culinary community is in mourning following the news Friday that Anthony Bourdain was found dead in a hotel room in France of a reported suicide. The 61-year-old celebrity chef, author and television personality is credited for inspiring millions. According to multiple news outlets, he was found unresponsive by friend and chef Eric Ripert.

“Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park,” Bourdain once mused. “Enjoy the ride.”

Through shows like No Reservations and Parts Unknown, Bourdain took people across the globe. The sharp-tongued activist wasn’t afraid to tell it like it was, and in the last year had become a staunch supporter of the #MeToo movement.

“In these current circumstances, one must pick a side,” he wrote in Medium. “I stand unhesitatingly and waveringly with the women.”

Many celebrities, in and out of the kitchen, turned to social media to express their sadness and share stories about Bourdain.
