Loved all of his shows, especially Parts Unknown.
Really sad about this.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.

Pretty crazy.  I’ve always respected him and while he wasn’t cuttin the culinary world apart with new foods, he was all in for uncovering hidden and misunderstood cultures. 
I’m sorry that Eric Ripert was the one who found him, as he found his father after committing suicide when he was a young boy.
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

He was so great on the early seasons of Top Chef and Parts Unknown was always so good.

That’s a shame.  :-(

I really only know him from Parts Unknown, but he was great on it.

Fucking awful. 

Ugh.

That IS sad, if it was an apparent suicide especially. I always enjoyed his explorations of cultures through food.

My friend was the editor of all those shows and I watched several of them.  I used to like him and then when he went on that rant about how Phish sucks I stopped.  Still sad though.

this one really bums me out.
always been a big bourdain fan. used to watch no reservations religiously.
i always related to his real restaurant worker / former addict/ NYC perspective.
so much about him was a part of me too.  :cry:

Interesting...one of my best friends in the world produced Parts Unknown until he left CNN. He’s devastated, as he and AB were going to discuss a new project when AB returned from France.

RIP. I really enjoyed his work.

This sucks
I've liked him ever since I read Kitchen Confidential. He had such a great, entertaining way of putting things. Loved Parts Unkonw, too. I was planning to watch a few eps to plan an upcoming vaca

I'm sure he knows my two friends then.  They both have worked on his shows for 10 years.
