"The Latino community was very important to him because in the kitchens of NY there are many Latinos", Medina said. As the Inquisitr reported, Bourdain was found dead on Friday of an apparent suicide.
A world traveller and pundit who had much to say on food, politics and cultures, Bourdain's death has created ripples around the globe.
Known for his award-winning series No Reservations, world-famous chef, traveler, gifted storyteller, and one of CNN's most familiar faces, Anthony Bourdain, died on June 8. Mr. Bourdain was found in his hotel room at Le Chambard, a luxury hotel in Kaysersberg, a village in the Alsace region of eastern France, according to a prosecutor in the nearby city of Colmar. I have so many thoughts about him-memories, emotions, and unanswered questions-that right now it's sort of a jumble.
"Bourdain's exceptional writing made this one formerly picky, fearful eater very fearless and want to try everything and I'll always be grateful for him and the worlds he opened", tweeted Lin-Manuel Miranda.

"He seemed happy, cheerful, he was joking and enjoying himself", the employee, who declined to give her name, said of Bourdain.
People all over the world are grieving over the news and paying their respects to the chef's family and loved ones. He was my love, my rock, my protector.
"If you think about who the audience is and what their expectations might be, I think that's the road to badness and mediocrity", he told the AP. I am beyond devastated.
Born in New York City and raised in Leonia, New Jersey, Bourdain went on to graduate from the Culinary Institute of America in 1978 and pursue a career in cooking.
