PARIS (Reuters) – Paul Bocuse, a single of France’s most celebrated chefs, has died at the age of 91, the inside minister claimed on Saturday.
Bocuse was an early exponent of “nouvelle cuisine”, which reinterpreted classic French cooking utilizing much less butter and cream and focusing on refreshing components and attractive presentation.
Interior Minister Gerard Collomb declared Bocuse’s demise on his formal twitter feed.
“Paul Bocuse is dead… The pope of gastronomy has left us,” posted Collomb, a former mayor of Bocuse’s house town of Lyon.
