Stunned fans of the culinary world’s shock-jock Anthony Bourdain took to social media on Friday with a chorus of heartbreak and disbelief over the chef-turned-global-celebrity’s suicide in the north of France.
Twitter and Facebook, once again, became virtual town squares where Bourdain’s faithful gathered to mourn the loss of the world-traveling bon vivant.Related Articles

In the San Francisco Bay Area, a corner of the world Bourdain knew well and loved enough to bring his show, No Reservations, back in 2009, and his latest show, Parts Unknown, in 2015, the grieving was nearly palpable. For a city spoiled rotten with world-class restaurants, and a region that has spawned more foodie trends that you can count on two hands, the shocking demise of this culinary rock star shook the ground that through the decades has given birth to everything from Chez Panisse to Stars to Swan Oyster Depot to State Bird Provisions.

Anthony Bourdain was a lot of things to a lot of people. As a dedicated blue belt, he was a passionate member and ardent supporter of the global jiu-jitsu community. I loved seeing him train with Kurt Osiander and his crew in San Francisco on his show. He will be missed.

My visits to many cities were influenced by his exploits. San Francisco, Montréal, Paris…and more yet to come. He influenced my approach to travel and made me laugh with his acerbic, honest humanity. I’m gutted. @Bourdain
