Every year, @Citymeals on Wheels hosts their Chefs’ Tribute event which brings together chefs from different backgrounds, countries and cultures. It was an honor to invite Chef @Sylvain.Assie from @CafeBouludto to cook alongside me for the 33rd year of Chefs’ Tribute as the theme was ‘A Grand Affair’ and celebrated hotels from across the globe. We served traditional Quenelles de Brochet, a dish from my hometown of Lyon and one of my favorites. I hope you all got a taste! It was an honor to be joined by chefs from around the world (Dubai, Ireland, London, India, Italy, Peru) and catch up with old friends like @Helenedarroze, @Chefcharliepalmer, @Chefalfredportale, #LarryForgione and more. Thank you to @Beth_Shapiro for your support and drive to bring these wonderful chefs together for a great cause.
Today the world lost a giant force of nature @anthonybourdain a brilliant chef who knew how to speak the language of cooks and an unparalleled food /travel /culture #storyteller but most importantly a dear friend. His passion for cooking, writing and his hunger for adventure was inspiring. We will always have Lyon and those days of eating like kings together with Monsieur #PaulBocuse@paulbocuse_officiel for @PartsUnknown. His passionate character and true honesty will be missed across the industry and the world. We will continue to honor you Tony and may you rest in paradise 🙏
My condolences, love and prayers go to his family and all those mourning his powerful soul.
