R.I.P. Charlie Trotter

One of America's greatest chefs and a self taught one at that, Charlie Trotter passed away today at 54.
A friend found him unconscious and he was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

    I was stunned by the news. I didn't know his history until reading his obituary. Trotter attended UW at same time I did.

    He will be missed. His alumi list is a who's who in the industry. We had a great meal there some years ago and he was our server! We will never forget that one! RIP!
