'I am beyond devastated': Asia Argento mourns boyfriend Anthony Bourdain

'I am beyond devastated': Asia Argento mourns boyfriend Anthony Bourdain

The outpouring of grief comes after the 61-year-old TV chef, who wrote the bestseller Kitchen Confidential, was found dead in his hotel room in France on Friday. I saw nothing that would indicate what happened like why this would happen.

"I look back on that, and I think about what I'll tell my daughter".

A new episode of Anthony Bordain: Parts Unknown will air on Sunday Night on CNN, just a few days after the host's untimely passing. "My love and prayers are also with his family, friends, loved ones and everyone that knew him".

"Thank you for what you gave to this world, a deeper understanding of culture and food", one note said.

Bourdain's girlfriend, Asia Argento, said in a statement that she was "beyond devastated" and asked for privacy.

Rest in peace to the revered chef, journalist, and cultural reporter.

Bourdain was Jewish. His mother Gladys (née Sacksman) was an editor at The New York Times.

But who knows what was going through Anthony Bourdain's mind in his final moments, other than Bourdain himself.

Asia Argento and Anthony Bourdain. Food historian Michael W. Twitty won a coveted James Beard award earlier this spring for The Cooking Gene: A Journey Through African American Culinary History in the Old South.

Fellow celebrity chefs didn't always gain Bourdain's respect or praise.

The celebratory mood at the Moschino's fashion show tinged with sadness over recent deaths of designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.

The chef was loved by people all over the world.

Focusing on what he called "the most contentious piece of real estate in the world", Bourdain used the episode to reveal his own Jewish heritage: "I've never been in a synagogue".

Much closer to home - Bourdain lived in NY, when he wasn't traveling - was a late-night visit to Waffle House in Charleston, South Carolina, described in poetic terms by Bourdain as "an irony-free zone where everything is handsome and nothing hurts; where everybody regardless of race, creed, color or degree of inebriation is welcomed". Bourdain explained to People, "We both work a lot and we're both away from home a lot so we're both circus freaks in the same circus-or different circuses I guess". I'm not a person, obviously, who's happy being idle for too long. "But no, I'm quite sure I can't".

"There have been times, honestly, in my life that I figured, I've had a good run - why not just do this stupid thing, this selfish thing ... jump off a cliff into water of indeterminate depth", he said. "I communicate for a living but I'm bad at communicating with people I care about".
