He lived a grand life and his food mesmerized me for two decades, and it is sad to know he is gone.
he got to live to 91 and also lived to see his place and recognition in culinary history. Not bad.
I liked this part of the NY Times obituary:
Mr. Bocuse, a tireless self-promoter, was a constant presence in the news media and on television. “You’ve got to beat the drum in life,” he told People magazine in 1976. “God is already famous, but that doesn’t stop the preacher from ringing the church bells every morning.”
Nice little salute in The New Yorker, by Bill Buford…
Thanks for sharing Robert.
