“It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,” the network said. “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”

The celebrity chef had been working on an upcoming episode for his award-winning show “Parts Unknown,” which featured Bourdain traveling to exotic locations all around the world as he indulged in local cuisine and customs.

In an email to employees, CNN president Jeff Zucker mourned Bourdain’s passing. “Tony was an exceptional talent,” said Zucker. “Tony will be greatly missed not only for his work but also for the passion with which he did it.”

Bourdain became an international star back in 1999 with an article he wrote for the New Yorker called “Don’t Eat Before Reading This,” a piece which eventually transformed into a best selling book, “Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly.”

He eventually made his way to the Food Network where he hosted “A Cook’s Tour” and then “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations,” which was nominated for an Emmy.

Sadly, Bourdain leaves behind an 11-year-old daughter, Ariane.

This is truly a sad, sad end to an extraordinary life and career. Thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones he left behind.

Nothing screams “we are good people” like assaulting an innocent police officer who had nothing to do with the death of Minnesota man, George Floyd. But protesters don’t care. All they want to do is inflict the most harm possible on the most people, in the most cities.

George Floyd Protesters Torch Nashville Courthouse, Dallas Business Owner Stoned & Beaten

OUT OF CONTROL!

What sense does it make to beat up on people who had nothing to do with a particular incident? These George Floyd rioters and looters are nothing but bullies who want attention. They’re bored. They weren’t given enough attention as children – or maybe too much. And now, innocent Americans are paying the price. On Saturday, the mayor of Nashville invited protesters to join him at city hall. What happened next was a complete disgrace.
