Anthony Bourdain: Vietnam noodle bar owner's shock at chef's death


Tributes to Anthony Bourdain have been pouring in nonstop since it was announced that the beloved chef and TV host had passed away on Friday, with everyone from Toni Collette to Barack Obama expressing shock and paying their respects.

"He is absolutely the last person in the world I would have ever dreamed would do something like this", Gladys, a former editor at the New York Times, told the publication.

"I think when you travel as much as I have, you, I don't want to say I'm more humble, but I think you become aware of how other people live, how hard their lives are, how big the world is and then of course fatherhood changes everything", Bourdain said. "Money beyond his wildest dreams", she said.

Glaydis Bourdain, his 83-year-old mother, was informed by Ripert that "Tony had been in a dark mood these past couple of days", according to the Times.

He flew her to New York City, where they had coffee. He struggled with heroin addiction, but eventually got cleaned up and started a family later in life. He taught us about food - but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together.

Anthony Bourdain had an outsized impact on the life of Jason Rezaian, the journalist who was jailed by Iran shortly after filming an episode of Bourdain's "Parts Unknown". At the time of his death, he was dating actor and director Asia Argento, who recently accused Harvey Weinstein of rape. He told me that the greatest Brazilian chefs came from Minas Gerais, my home state.

President Obama, who made a guest appearance on "Parts Unknown" in 2016, tweeted a touching photo and memory of Bourdain.

The department originally denied Congress access to any of the documents, citing national security concerns. Nunes has said the committee is still waiting for documents, and Ryan backed him on that Wednesday.

Tweeting her article in October a year ago, Bourdain addressed his girlfriend and her allegations at the once-powerful Hollywood producer.

Lotti plans to dine at the Chambard's restaurant, and "I will have a thought about him". "They said we're going to eat the same thing as Mr. Bourdain", Schroeder said.

When the crew heard of the news, everyone "just sat on the ground", master butcher Christine Speisser, who was to show Bourdain around the market, told People. But you know, I also don't have that many regrets either.

"Some, of course, like to claim that Mexicans are stealing American jobs", Bourdain said in 2014.

"Yes, I have been very blessed to have crossed paths with you in this lovely life". While there, he wrote an essay on the behind-the-scenes of the restaurant world, which led to the memoir "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly", turning him into a celebrity chef.

IT WASN'T like Anthony Bourdain to skip a good meal. "You can get a master's in diplomacy, but that doesn't mean anything until you go out and engage with people".
