This is how I’ll remember Tony,” Obama tweeted.Bourdain was found unresponsive in a hotel room in France yesterday. According to CNN, the cause of the death was suicide.

Bourdain, 61, was in France for work on an upcoming episode of his CNN series “Parts Unknown.” Bourdain later said he had found Obama to be “very relaxed and at ease” during their time together.”What can I tell you about what it’s like to sit across from the President of the United States and drink beer from the bottle?,” he had told CNN.”I can tell you that Barack Obama was, in spite of having had a high-ranking leader of the Taliban whacked in Pakistan a few days previous, very relaxed and at ease. He seemed to enjoy himself sitting on a low plastic stool eating noodles and pork bits with chopsticks,” he said.President Donald Trump described Bourdain’s death as “very sad”.
