In Memoriam - Chef Paul Prudhomme
The culinary world mourns today as Chef Paul Prudhomme, a legend of New Orleans cuisine, passed away this past Thursday at the age of 75. The culinary world benefited from the presence and knowledge of Chef Prudhomme, a treasured Louisiana native and trailblazer with an undeniable influence in this industry.
Opening the doors of K-Paul's in 1979, it didn't take long for Chef Prudhomme's 64-seat restaurant in the French Quarter to become a destination of delight far more than just a local eatery. It propelled the chef into culinary kingdom. A New York Times Bestseller, Chef Prudhomme's career expanded with cookbooks, an incredible line of homemade seasonings and celebrity fame. Chef Magazine says goodbye to an old friend forever thankful that his memory will live on through his stories, his food, and the long-lasting impact that Chef Paul Prudhomme has had on the culinary industry.
