We honor the memory of our friend, Charlie Trotter, and his impact on the culinary world. He passed too soon, but his legacy will live on in the long list of esteemed chefs he mentored, many of whom are now, in turn, mentoring those who will become the esteemed chefs of tomorrow. Even more, we respect and greatly appreciate the philosophies he advocated: paying close attention to every detail, using the best ingredients, and elevating food to its highest level. We’ve seen how these ideas have changed food over the last few decades and thank him for his part in bringing these concepts to the table.
