He became a TV chef years after we left the area, mostly for a show I think called "Death by Chocolate" or something. But it seems to me he did a great one about burgers. It is funny that he became famous for food I never ate there. (and I ate there whenever I could afford to). But he did do the local produce thing really well, and the dishes were all to die for. Marcel De .... I'll have to go googling.
Claire: he's Marcel DeSaulnier.

yup, that's him alright. I could get Marcel de something! I even tried to get from there to his whole name on line! Loved his restaurant, and I'm not into celebrity restaurants. Of course it wasn't a celebrity restaurant when I frequented the place and I don't know if he's even still connected with it.
