Chef Paul Prudhomme: Louisiana Icon
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Chef Paul Prudhomme's sudden passing yesterday. I first met the great chef at a Fancy Food show in 2003. I had the opportunity to work with him and Chef John Folse on a photo shoot, and on two different cooking demonstration stages. The first one was outdoors, it was 95 degrees, and an audience of well over 100 people sat at rapt attention in the blazing sun. It was inspiring. He will be missed.
