Los Angeles: U.S. celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, who committed suicide in June at age 61, posthumously earned a pair of Emmy Awards on Sunday for his work on the popular CNN food-and-travel show he hosted, "Parts Unknown".

Bourdain was awarded one of the Emmys, the U.S. television industry's highest honour, for outstanding writing of a non-fiction programme for an episode of the series set in southern Italy that aired last November during its 10th season.

ourdain climbed the culinary career ladder to become executive chef at New York's former Brasserie Les Halles restaurant.

Bourdain's fame began to grow exponentially in 1999 when the New Yorker magazine published his article "Don't Eat Before Reading This," which he developed into the 2000 book, "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly."



Brash and opinionated, he also spoke openly about his use of drugs and addiction to heroin earlier in his life.

He went on to host television programmes, first on the Food Network and the Travel Channel, before joining CNN in 2013.
