Legendary chef Benoît Violier has died in what police say was an apparent suicide.
Authorities say Violier was found dead Sunday at his home in Switzerland.
Many of the world's top-ranked chefs shared their grief and condolences on social media.
Some have speculated that the stress of maintaining elite rankings could have played a part in Violier's death. According to The Guardian, the chef spoke of that stress in a 2014 interview with Swiss channel RTS, saying, "It's my life. I go to sleep with cooking, I wake up to cooking."
