New Orleans has lost another culinary titan with the death at age 75 of Chef Paul Prudhomme after a brief illness.
He popularized Cajun and Creole cuisine, including introducing the blackened craze. He was an author, a restauranteur, a television personality and a purveyor of spice.
As he said:
You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.
