The celebrity chef's haunting last message to his fans before his suicide


Famous TV Chef Anthony Bourdain, 61, was found dead on the 8th of June 2018, a declared suicide by hanging,

His body was found in his hotel room by his close friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert. Bourdain, 61, was in France shooting a new episode of his series Parts Unknown in Kaysersberg-Vignoble, as reported by CNN.

As it always seems to be the case, Bourdain's nearest and dearest are reeling in disbelief. His death shocked colleagues, family, friends and fans, who did not expect the chef's suicide. His girlfriend Italian actress Asia Argento also expressed her shock and grief at his sudden death saying: "I am beyond devastated."

Bourdain's last message to the world was on Twitter, five days before his death on the 3rd of June 2018.


"He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated."

Asia Argento, CNN, 8th of June 2018.

He spoke of a song that would stay with him: Michael Ruffinos' Rising Sun Blues. The song had been featured on an episode featuring Hong Kong as a destination on his CNN show, Parts Unknown, and the chef had found the rendition haunting.

CNN has shared their views on the chef, who was well-liked and admired by all his colleagues, and declared that he will be sorely missed. His series Parts Unknown, in which Bourdain traveled around the world in search of exotic culinary experiences, was a hit on CNN.

The chef was a New Jersey native, and the State is planning on honoring Bourdain with a “food trail” of his favorite New Jersey restaurants. Bourdain grew up in Leonia, New Jersey, and spent his summers at the Jersey shore.

The 'food trail' is being proposed by the New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism, and would include “Kubel’s in Barnegat Light, Hiram’s Roadstand in Fort Lee, Knife & Fork, Dock’s Oyster House, Tony’s Baltimore Grill, and James’ Salt Water Taffy in Atlantic City, Tony and Ruth Steaks and Donkey’s Place in Camden, Lucille’s Country Cooking in Barnegat, and Frank’s Deli in Asbury Park.

It is an appropriate homage to a man who lived life intensely and loved good food above all else.
