Oh, so sad, we lost another great one!!
I had hoped that he was still alive. He WILL be missed. He and Julia Child were two of the great ones.
I used to wath him cook his authentic Cajiun-style meals every Saturday afternoon.
Yeah, long before celebrity chefs Emeril Lagasse, Bobby Flay, Raechal Ray and Paula Deen and Giada Delurentiis became famous, Justin and Jeff Smith (the Frugal Gourmet) were among the ones to watch.
