I loved Mr Food! It was always about the food and never about him. He was always so warm and made everything so possible. This is indeed a loss.
I was a fan of Mr. Food! I haven’t seen him in years but always loved his, ooh it is so good! Line. He will be missed.
My Mom had all his cookbooks and she just adored his personality. “It’s soooo goood!” RIP.
I just heard about this on my local news a little while ago. They did a nice piece on him in lieu of his usual food segment. I have tried several of his recipes over the years and have never been disappointed. I’ve thought he was looking pretty thin in his face recently, but just figured he’d been watching his weight. It didn’t occur to me that he might be ill. I’ve also noticed an assistant from his test kitchen with him lately, but again, didn’t make the connection. So sorry to hear of his passing. He seemed like a really nice man.
That is sad.
Loved him. Terrific books!
