The celebrity chef died yesterday by suicide, aged 61, while in France working on his travel and food show, Parts Unknown. She died of apparent suicide on Tuesday.

CNN confirmed the death, saying in a statement he was found unresponsive Friday morning by friend and chef Eric Ripert, and calling it a suicide. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time", the network said.

"His friend was waiting at breakfast, and waiting and waiting", Mr. Voinson said. Unapologetic, passionate and one of the best storytellers on the planet.

He continued: "I pray he is at peace from the bottom of my heart". His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds.

Asia also wrote "He was my love, my rock, my protector". I am beyond devastated.

Obama posted a tribute on Twitter to Bourdain on Friday, sharing a picture of the pair drinking beer during the meal which took place during his state visit to Hanoi. "This is how I'll remember Tony".

"His most important contribution to food was that he liberated a whole generation of chefs", said Manu Chandra, chef partner of Monkey Bar, The Fatty Bao and Toast & Tonic.

"Anthony was a dear friend", Ripert told ABC News in a statement Friday.

One note said: "Thank you for what you gave to this world, a deeper understanding of culture and food". And always standing up for everything right.

British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay tweeted that he was stunned and saddened by the loss.
