Anthony Bourdain was not just a chef, he was an influencer – of food, and of thought. Bourdain took his own life earlier today, Friday June 8th. According to CNN, Bourdain’s friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert found Bourdain unresponsive in his hotel room.
Bourdain was in France taping another episode of his CNN show, Parts Unknown. Bourdain had a huge affect not only on lovers of food, but everybody, with his quick wit, his penchant for speaking up on social justice and his constant defense of the restaurant workers in the back. Metalheads and rock musicians were very much touched by his work, and the tributes have been pouring in.
