I regret to inform those who hadn't heard of the passing of Bernard Loiseau chef of the famed Cote d' Or in France. He was age 52. Evidently, he could not take the thought of dropping from 19/20 rating to 17/20 in the GaultMillau ratings which were just released. He had warned of suicide if he would ever loose one of his 3 Michelin stars.
A very sad event on many levels, reminding all of us to go easy on our critisism of others and be easy on the pressure we put on ourselves.
