  • US chef Anthony Bourdain has died, aged 61

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time", the network said. He won several Emmy awards and a Peabody award in 2013 according to CNN.

"It never struck me as peculiar, but it was as if he gave everything to his work and then had nothing, zero, left for himself afterwards", the source told People.

CNN announced Bourdain's death with a statement Friday.

His show, "No Reservations", won two Emmy Awards, and the show he was now working on, "Parts Unknown" is in its 11 season. There were no signs that anyone else came into the room and no signs of a struggle on Bourdain's body, eliminating the possibility of foul play.

The TV personality was previously married to Ottavia Busia, with whom he shares a daughter, 11-year-old Ariane.

Oliver wrote on Instagram: "I have to say I'm in total shock to hear that the unbelievable @anthonybourdain has just died".

His close friend Eric Ripert, the French chef, found Bourdain unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning.

Anthony Bourdain was my best friend. "He was an exceptional human being, so inspiring and generous", Ripert, 53, said in a statement to Us on Friday.

Bourdain was Jewish. His mother Gladys (née Sacksman) was an editor at The New York Times. "Success beyond his wildest dreams". Bourdain wrote about the episode in 2016.

Kiwi chefs say Anthony Bourdain was a "legend" who shone a spotlight on important issues in the industry.

Another well-known figure, Kate Spade, also was found dead in an apparent suicide by hanging Tuesday.

Bourdain's profile began to soar in 1999, when the New Yorker magazine published his article "Don't Eat Before Reading This", which he developed into the 2000 book, "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly".

He made his T.V. debut with 35 episodes of A Cook's Tour, which aired on the Food Network between 2002 and 2003.

After a start washing dishes in a restaurant, the New York-born Bourdain gradually rose through the ranks to become a chef.

Anyone experiencing suicidal thoughts is asked to call the 24-hour National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
