The renowned French chef for many years had had Parkinson’s disease, and died at the age of 91 as it was posted on Twitter.
He died near his restaurant in Lyon, confirmed a chef near the family by the BBC. Paul Bocuse is a great name in the world of gastronomy, and dizzy fame began to gain in the 1970s as the beginner of the direction of “nouvelle cuisine”, which has promoted a much healthier way of cooking than in the past.
Its L’Auberge du Pont de Collonges restaurant was built with three Michelin stars in 1965. He was proclaimed the “Chef of the Century” by Gault-Millau in 1989, and was re-elected with the same recognition as the Culinary Institute of America in 2011.
“Paul Bocuse is dead. Gastronomy is sad,” said Mr Coll, Mayor of Lyon for 16 years.
“Mr. Paul is France, with simplicity and generosity, the excellence and the art of life, and the Pope’s gastronomy has left us, and our chefs in Lyon as well as in every corner of the world have long kept the fruits of his passion for life.” Calleb concluded the BBC report.
