Borden fame began in 2000 with his book on cooking, which achieved the highest sales and described the atmosphere behind the scenes in high-end kitchens.
He wrote frankly about his experience of drug abuse and abuse, including cocaine, heroin and LD.
His first television program was "A Chef's Grill Tour" in 2002, and three years later, for Travel, he prepared the "No Reservation with Anthony Borden" program, which won two Emmy TV Awards.
He moved to work with CNN in 2013 in a new cooking and travel program titled "Places unknown", which reached its eleventh season.
Borden grew up in the area of Liunya, New Jersey, one of New York City's finest neighborhoods.
His father was an executive director who graduated from Yale, and his mother worked as a prominent editor in the New York Times.
Borden began writing after his fellow university student offered him a free trip to Cozumel in Mexico and promised to write books after returning from travel.
Less than six months after this trip in 1993, he wrote his first novel "Bone in the Larynx," while working as a chef in New York City.
Borden married twice, and the first marriage of his high school colleague, Nancy Butkowski, in 1985, but they separated after twenty years.
Two years later, Otavia married Busia, who has a daughter who was born in 2007, but they are divorced in 2016. He has blamed his continuing travel for causing the divorce.
Last year, Borden had a passionate relationship with Italian actress Argentino.
He became an outspoken defender of women's rights movement Meo after Argento accused former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of rape.
The death of Borden came days after the suicide of another famous figure, fashion designer and bags of famous women Kate Speed, who died a suicide for 55 years in New York.
