The world is reeling from the sudden departure of renowned chef Anthony Bourdain.

Further details are emerging on Bourdain's passing after initial reports that the cause of death was an apparent suicide, with CNN reporting that Bourdain's longtime friend and contemporary Eric Ripert discovered his body.

Ripert, an acclaimed chef who frequently worked with Bourdain, reportedly found Bourdain in his hotel room in Strasbourg, France Friday morning. The two were in the region shooting an episode of Bourdain's hit show "Parts Unknown."

Just last week, Ripert shared some words of Buddhist wisdom with his followers, citing the Dalai Lama: "Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortune to have woken up; I am alive, I have a precious human life," the quote begins.

 

Multiple reports claim Bourdain died by hanging.

Bourdain had spoken openly of his struggles with substance abuse. In his book "Kitchen Confidential," he said that in the '80s, he was a heavy user ofdrugs including cocaine, LSD, mushrooms, codeine and heroin.

Bourdain leaves behind his 11-year-old daughter.

Anthony Bourdain was found dead Friday in his hotel room in Strasbourg, France, where he had been working on his CNN series, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. His body was discovered by his friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert, who said Bourdain had committed suicide.

Bourdain lived a lot in his 61 years. In his early ones, he dealt with addiction (“All I can tell you is this: I got off of heroin in the 1980s. … There are a lot of guys that didn’t get that far,” he once said), but he turned his love of food into a career that eventually took him around the globe. The man who didn’t have a savings account until he was 44 said, “I should’ve died in my 20s. I became successful in my 40s. I became a dad in my 50s. I feel like I’ve stolen a car — a really nice car — and I keep looking in the rearview mirror for flashing lights.”

Food was his most well-known passion, but he had many others, including jujitsu, for which he received awards. And he had a lot of passion for the women in his life. He was dating Italian actress Asia Argento, standing strong by her side after she came forward as a Harvey Weinstein accuser and collaborating with her on his show. He was married two times previously and also leaves behind an 11-year-old daughter.

I have been so sad since this morning after this news broke.
Anthony Bourdain was perhaps the most beautiful soul I ever watched on TV shows and his show was the ONLY show I ever really cared to watch.

So sad.  :(
