Celebrated French chef dead

Pope Of French Cuisine Paul Bocuse Dies At 91

The French president announced: "French gastronomy loses a mythical figure. The pope of gastronomy has left us", posted Collomb, a former mayor of Bocuse's home city of Lyon.

Celebrated chef Paul Bocuse, nicknamed the pope of French gastronomy, has died at the age of 91. "Simplicity and generosity. Excellence and art de vivre", Interior Minister Gerard Collomb tweeted.

Bocuse was among the key figures in the creation of French nouvelle cuisine.

The heart of his empire, L'Auberge de Collonges au Mont D'Or, his father's village inn near Lyon in food-obsessed southeastern France, earned three stars in 1965, and never lost a single one.

Bocuse rose to fame in the 1970s as a proponent of "nouvelle cuisine", a healthier form of cooking. "I love butter, cream and wine" he said, and by 1958 he had his first Michelin star. he would go on to win two more of the prized supreme accolades, and from his base in Lyon he began to train a whole new generation of chefs.

"His name alone summed up French gastronomy in its generosity and respect for tradition but also its inventiveness", the French president said. "But they will continue his work". "The chefs cry in their kitchens, at the Elysée and everywhere in France". "They coined a concept that came at exactly the right moment - at a time when gastronomy was a bit tiresome and heavy and not sexy at all".

High profile Spanish-American chef José Andrés was among those to pay tribute to Bocuse on Twitter, saying: "The angels will have a feast today".
