Art Ginsburg, the delightfully dorky television chef known as Mr. Food, died at his home in Weston, Fla., Wednesday following a struggle with pancreatic cancer. He was 81.

He did 3 minute cut-ins on local noon newscasts. He would always end with the tag line “Oooooh, it’s SOOOOO GOOD!”

Sad. I used to enjoy his slots on our local evening TV news. His catch phrase: “Ooooooo....it’s sooo goood!”

RIP

I remember his bits on the local news at noon. Despite his quirks, he had some great recipes.

Rest in peace, Mr. Food.

Oh nooooooos. Who is cooking tomorrow in that family.....jk. Hope he makes it to Heaven and that his family finds comfort in having him in their lives for a pretty decent amount of time.

He has one of the best recipe web sites out there. I used to subscribe to his TV cooking show recipes, too. Always loved all of his stuff. We just had his Amish Chicken Casserole Saturday night. It’s a family favorite made with rotisserie chicken. Oooh, it’s sooooo gooooood!
