The culinary world has lost one who belongs in the Pantheon. Chef Charlie Trotter supported Lucini from our inception when he had nothing to gain and didn’t really have to – he simply appreciated mine and Renee’s intention to transform the American table.
I remember Charlie as a great improvisational jazz artist, like the ones he so admired. His spirit of improvisation, creativity and astute dedication to his craft inspired countless people. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Thank you Chef. We will miss you.
