Remembering Charlie Trotter

Charlie Trotter with Julia Child in 1995.

Just some thoughts I shared on Facebook this morning:

Charlie Trotter died this morning. If he’d come along 10 years later, he’d have gone down as America’s best chef.

He hit his stride while we were still using dialup and food television consisted of two hours on PBS. His restaurant started losing momentum as our appetite for great food and culinary knowledge exploded.

This is him 20 years ago, showing — as he did so well — how to bring out beauty in simple ingredients: http://video.pbs.org/video/1177717210
