Autopsy results revealed after Anthony Bourdain's death

Bourdain had been in Paris working on a new culinary series for CNN, and was found in his hotel room by fellow celebrity chef and friend Eric Ripert.

Anthony Bourdain did not have any narcotics in his system at the time of his death, according to a toxicology report that was revealed to the New York Times by a French official.

Anthony Bourdain's sobriety was intact up until his death.

He began dating actress Asia Argento a year ago after meeting her while filming the Rome episode of Parts Unknown; it is believed they were still together at the time of Bourdain's death.

French prosecutor Christian de Rocquigney de Fayel told the New York Times in a text message that there were no drugs in Bourdain's system - save for a normal dose of a non-narcotic medicine.

Bourdain, whose career catapulted him from washing dishes at NY restaurants to dining in Vietnam with former United States president Barack Obama, was once called "the original rock star" of the culinary world, "the Elvis of bad boy chefs". "I never was a person who needed a drink".

Bourdain, host of CNN's food-and-travel-focused "Parts Unknown" television series, was 61. I've never felt the urge to.

Last week, it was reported that Bourdain was cremated in France and his remains were sent to his brother, Christopher.

A spokeswoman for Bourdain's estranged wife, Ottavia Bourdain, tells the outlet there are no plans for a public memorial "at this time". On Friday, she shared a photo of her love.
