Chef Wan Recalls The Day He Made Anthony Bourdain Laugh

Chef Wan Recalls The Day He Made Anthony Bourdain Laugh

The former US President - who famously appeared on Bourdain's show "Parts Unknown" in 2016 - has taken to social media to hail the influence of the celebrity chef, who committed suicide in a hotel in France, where he's been shooting scenes for his programme.

"He is absolutely the last person in the world I would have ever dreamed would do something like this", she told the Times.

When Argento delivered a bombshell impromptu speech about sexual assault within the film industry and beyond at this year's Cannes Film Festival in mid-May, Bourdain celebrated her "dropping an unexpected nuke on the crowd. Money beyond his wildest dreams", she said.

She said that her son "had been in a dark mood these past couple of days".

Bourdain, the host of "Parts Unknown" and "No Reservations", was found dead in a hotel room in France on Friday.

Four days before his death, he dined at French chef Julien Schroeder at his restaurant in Colmar. I will never forget that episode where you featured Puebla in Mexico.

Fans of Anthony Bourdain have been joined by former USA president Barack Obama and United Kingdom celebrity chefs in mourning his loss. Thank you for everything you have done for us and the world that watches you, from opening up our eyes to many different culinary foods in the world to even our own states. His huge hit show, "Parts Unknown" ran on CNN from 2013 and until his death.

Bourdain had also previously been open about his past struggles with drugs and spoke of being a recovering heroin addict.

His later book, Medium Raw, reflected on his experiences as a food celebrity, although the book is much more than the musings of someone living a gilded life.

Inside the restaurant, as hungry customers poured in for lunch today, diners gave extra attention to the glass box in which the table and chairs used by Bourdain and Obama are preserved. To meet you and to instantly know you are exactly how I thought you would be.

The circumstances of Bourdain's death has led authorities "to suspect that not much preparation and premeditation went into the act, and leads us more in the direction of an impulsive act", the prosecutor said.

It was one of his last meals.

"I was surprised and sad when I heard about [Bourdain]", Nguyen Thi Nga told AFP news agency in Hanoi.

Images of the casual dinner went viral after Bourdain, known for his love of adventurous street food, described the date in a series of tweets and an Instagram post. "You brought people together", another note said. "You think it's probably a fake", the restaurant's sommelier, Herve Fleuriel, told The AP, recalling "that great Chef who was here on Wednesday lunch".
