  • Asia Argento Speaks Out About Anthony Bourdain's Suicide Report

Xi'an Famous Foods, a popular Chinese restaurant chain in New York City, had humble beginnings, but the CEO says the family business has flourished thanks to the late Anthony Bourdain.

The highly-publicised deaths of fashion designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain have led to warnings of a rise in suicides here in Australia.

Anthony Bourdain was in a "dark mood" in the days leading up to his suicide, his best friend and traveling companion told the famed chef's mother.

"We think people are prospering and doing well", she says, "but the reality is that because those individuals may in part feel like 'I should be better, or I should be OK, ' they may be even less likely to reach out for help".

'He had everything. Success beyond his wildest dreams.

It was the start of his second act.

Bourdain later said he had found Obama to be "very relaxed and at ease" during their time together.

Heidi Heitkamp , a North Dakota Democrat in a tough re-election fight in 2018, said she was "very interested" in the proposal. The bill would apply to all actions moving forward, as well as those taken at any point within the last two years.

Bourdain was in Strasbourg, France, to shoot for the new season of the show. In an interview with The Mirror, which turned out to be Bennington's last, the singer had said, "I came to a point in my life where I was like, "I can either just give up and fucking die or I can f**king fight for what I want".

"All I can tell you is this: I got off of heroin in the 1980s". Mr. Bourdain knew the chef, Monsieur Nasti; he knew the kitchen.

And while Schroeder may not have known much about Bourdain beforehand, he realized the day Bourdain came to his restaurant that he was in the presence of a culinary superstar. I really can't talk about him. "And he simply replied, 'I'm just calling out good food like it is, that's all'".

Bourdain and his close friend who discovered him unresponsive, Eric Ripert, ate at the hotel's bistro The Winstub almost every night for dinner. "I know it's been a couple of days, but it is still so raw". And it seemed that he pretty much accomplished that, traveling the globe some 200 days a year for his TV shows, reveling not in fancy tasting menus - which he scorned - but in simple pleasures like a cold beer and spicy noodles in Hanoi, which he once shared with former President Barack Obama.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN probably did more than any other chef to bring about the culinary renaissance now underway in the U.S. His books on the restaurant industry, like Kitchen Confidential, were half gonzo autobiography, half user guide, and all irreverent humor, spoken in the salty patois of kitchen subculture. "He touched the lives of chefs, everyday people, drug addicts, everybody". He said she sounded happy when they spoke the night before Spade's death.

Bourdain's profile began to soar in 1999, when the New Yorker magazine published his article "Don't Eat Before Reading This", which he developed into the 2000 book, "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly".

"You still had so many places to show us, whispering to our souls the great possibilities beyond what we could see with our own eyes", chef José Andrés tweeted.
