Through sheer luck and the billions of things that lead us from one road, one town, one job interview to another I met Charlie Trotter. He went on to become one of the most admired, celebrated and sometimes feared chefs in America. The documentary, “Love, Charlie” gets past the quick descriptions and into the heart and passion of the man. Charlie was one of my best friends in all of my life. He comes alive in this film and I hope you see it.
A short few weeks ago another fine American chef and one who also worked with me at the dawn of his career, (like Charlie) held a screening and dinner for 40 invited guests. There was a recording which became a podcast. Of that you can learn here.
I raise a glass to my late Friend and Brother!
