Bourdain was also honored by many of his CNN colleagues, including Don Lemon and Wolf Blitzer, in the hour-long special "Remembering Anthony Bourdain".

A police spokesperson in Strasbourg, France, confirmed Bourdain's death to PEOPLE, but would not confirm the cause of death.

Following the death of Anthony Bourdain, French authorities have released a statement with more details.

On Tuesday, fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead in her New York City residence, and on Friday, celebrity chef and author Anthony Bourdain, host of the CNN travel show "Parts Unknown", was found dead in his hotel room in France at the age of 61.

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

Bourdain was Jewish. His mother Gladys (née Sacksman) was an editor at The New York Times. An exceptional human being, so inspiring & generous. One of the great storytellers of our time who connected with so many. "And makes me very sad for him to have - to have a succumbed to that", he shared. Money beyond his wildest dreams. Our family truly loved your displays of friendship, and our hearts break for the loss of your dearest friend.

At CNN in Atlanta, a mourner placed a flower and a note next to a poster of Bourdain in the lobby.

Bourdain posted a photo of the traditional Alsatian dish on his official Instagram account - his final post before his death.
