Remembering Great Chefs was created by carlos
This has been a very sad, challenging week for the Culinary world, with the death of two great, groundbreaking Chefs:

Mildred Council, “Mama Dips” Chapel Hill, South Carolina, US -“Mama Dip” 89 years old, a pioneer in down-home, wholesome, everyday Southern cooking She was considered an “icon” in the Culinary world. Mildred opened Mama Dips Restaurant in1976, practicing “dump” style cooking - no recipes, just measure by eye, feel, taste and testing. Her cookbooks “Mama Dips Kitchen” and “Mama Dips Family Cookbook” were published worldwide. Both Presidents George Bush and Barack Obama were her big fans. Her philosophy in life was “What you need to do is cook what you want to”

Anthony Bourdain - Chef, Raconteur, World Traveler, Writer, and Innovator - 61. The world will miss Anthonyʼs perspective on food and food preparation. He told the truth about the life of a kitchen worker in “Kitchen Confidential”, took us to “Parts Unknown” where he boldly visited and introduced us the new, exciting and sometimes strange food. His biography of “Typhoid Mary” and Mystery novels, gave us a glimpse of his creative mind and writing. My favorite quote since his untimely death comes from President Barack Obama from the great “Parts Unkown” episode where he shared a “low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi Beer” RIP Anthony
