Celebrity chef, author, TV food show host Anthony Bourdain dead at 61

"I confirm that we have learned this morning about the death of Anthony Bourdain by hanging, in a luxury hotel called Le Chambard, in the village of Kaysersberg (south of Strasbourg)", Prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny du Fayel told ABC News. CNN confirmed Bourdain's passing in a statement, listing the cause of death as suicide.

At the White House, President Trump said he was shocked to hear of Bourdain's death. He went on to work as a chef at several high-profile restaurants in NY and Washington before launching a TV career. "Of all the professions, after all, few people are less suited to be suddenly thrown into the public eye than chefs". Anthony Bourdain felt like an outsider, like he'd seen things you weren't ready for. This article goes into the many factors that led to this spike and offers some ways that as a society was can address this. The chef joined them for a meal at Tibetan restaurant Lhasa Fast Food, located at 37-50 74th Street and chatted about the community.
