Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain has always been incredibly passionate about his love for food.
So it was only right he came to the Carolinas to experience some classic Southern fare. About 3 years ago, in November of 2015, Bourdain sat down with Bill Murray at Charleston, South Carolina's Husk.
"The standard of food here is so high."
It was announced Friday morning that Bourdain was found dead in a hotel room in France.
The CNN host and true inspiration to all passed away from an apparent suicide. He was 61 years old.
It's not a secret that Bourdain had struggled for years with feelings of depression and thoughts of suicide, but decided to keep going for his 11-year-old daughter.
Speaking with People back in February, he said he felt “some responsibility” to “at least try to live” since his daughter, Ariane, was born.
“I also do feel I have things to live for,” Bourdain explained. “There have been times, honestly, in my life that I figured, ‘I’ve had a good run — why not just do this stupid thing, this selfish thing… jump off a cliff into water of indeterminate depth,'” he said, recalling something he said he’d once done for his Travel Channel show.
