'His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller'.

Bourdain was in France filming an episode of his CNN series Parts Unknown when he was found unresponsive in his hotel room.

TMZ reported that the two had actually been separated in the weeks prior to Bourdain's death, though their was no official confirmation that they had broken up. Hagerty told TIME on Friday, "To me, he was nothing but kind and a gentleman". The TV host had an immediate answer (Spain) but later contacted Benn privately to help facilitate the food part of a Spanish trip.

Meanwhile, business analyst Darren Rovell tweeted, "Devastated to learn of Anthony Bourdain, whom I admired from afar". "I don't know", said Newnam. "You will die friendless and alone", Bourdain informed her. That does not mean we always agree or get along but we all truly love and adore one another, no matter what.

Bourdain´s sudden death drew tributes from around the world - from current and former USA presidents to celebrated chefs to ordinary people who learned from his programs.

British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay took to his Twitter handle and wrote, "Stunned and saddened by the loss of Anthony Bourdain".

After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 1978, Bourdain went on to establish himself in New York's culinary scene, where he ran the kitchens of prestigious restaurants including One Fifth Avenue.

Their time together began in dramatic fashion when Bourdain escaped serious injury when he rolled a quad motorbike as the group travelled to a remote, off-the-grid Far North bach for a seafood feast.

On joining The Taste Anthony said: "We ask very simple questions: What makes you happy?"

The superstar chef was exhausted and still couldn't believe the speed of his rise to stardom, which was only a few years old when he came to New Zealand, Brown said.

Bourdain took his own life, the network said in a statement. A caption just below the image read, "You know who you are". "I pray he is at peace from the bottom of my heart/ My love & prayers are also w his family, friends and loved ones".
