Obama posted a tribute on Twitter to Bourdain on Friday, sharing a picture of the pair drinking beer during the meal, which took place during his state visit to Hanoi.
NEWS CENTER Maine caught up with Bourdain who only had kind words about the Milo community and the food they served him. "Please, if you have thoughts of killing yourself, tell someone. I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine", she continued. He was a great storyteller as he collaborated food and travel to tel stories from around the world. His talents never ceases to amaze us and we will miss him very much. He was found in a hotel room in the Alsace region of France, the New York Times reports, where he'd been traveling to film a segment for his popular CNN series, "Parts Unknown".
He had been dating Italian actress Asia Argento since 2017 and became an outspoken advocate for the #MeToo movement after she revealed she had been sexually assaulted by the movie producer Harvey Weinstein.
CNN was Bourdain's home for the past five years, so the loss has caused heartache throughout the organization.
Bourdain was in Haut-Rhin in France doing an episode of "Parts Unknown".
"He seemed happy, cheerful, he was joking and enjoying himself", the employee, who declined to give her name, said of Bourdain. "People always say, 'don't meet your heroes.' But I found him to be everything I expected him to be: witty, charming, funny". Bourdain's own mother, Gladys Bourdain, a longtime editor at The New York Times, said she had no indication that her son might have been thinking of suicide.
Bourdain is survived by his 11-year-old daughter Ariane, his only child with ex-wife Ottavia Busia.
As Bourdain had done in many interviews in the past, he spoke about his past demons, including his addiction to heroin and cocaine, and his use of alcohol.
Bourdain was the former executive chef of the now-closed Brasserie Les Halles, the host of CNN's "Parts Unknown" and the author of "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly". "While it's been nothing but good for business. few people are less suited to be suddenly thrown into the public eye than chefs".
Bourdain was twice divorced and has a daughter from his second marriage. And in each episode, Bourdain brimmed with a curiosity and swagger that left many viewers thinking: I want to go there - with that guy.
