'Obviously this is a holiday that revolves around food and family — both the family you're born with and the family that you choose or make for yourself, your friends and your loved ones,' Cooper opened the reflective segment.

'I was proud to call Anthony Bourdain a friend. Some of my favorite memories of him beyond his remarkable body of work on CNN, and other networks before us, was being with him in the kitchen,' he continued.

'From time to time he'd return from his travels, tell me about his adventures and film the segments for my program and he'd sort of try to teach me how to cook.'

Bourdain's career began as a chef in New York City, where he rose to become the executive chef at the Brasserie Les Halles.
