Below are pictures showing CNN’s Anthony Bourdain enjoying some Nigerian delicacies.
His death was confirmed on Friday by CNN stating suicide as the cause.
“It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,” the network said in a statement Friday morning.
“His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”
Anthony Bourdain died while working in France on his award-winning CNN series ‘Parts Unknown’. A close friend of his who is a chef, Eric Ripert, found him unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning.
According to CNN, Bourdain was a master of his crafts — first in the kitchen and then in the media. Through his TV shows and books, he explored the human condition and helped audiences think differently about food, travel and themselves. He advocated for marginalized populations and campaigned for safer working conditions for restaurant staff.
