Culinary Institute graduate, former executive chef at Bon Appetit - and the most daunting kind of relation ever if you fancy yourself a good cook. But as my husband's brother Terrence - who loved and lived with and for Robert for so many years always told me - "my house ain't a restaurant."
But most importantly, Robert and Terrence were together when he passed. At home, as Robert desired. Years of love will not vanish nor fade.
Robert always had a smile on - you never saw him down. And whatever he was doing with food seemed absolutely effortless.
Robert was a natural at what he loved. And he loved life. I saw that in his demeanor and in the life he gave my brother-in-law Terrence.
Check out this video - it's Robert at his best:
Peace to you, Robert.
All my love and best wishes as you embark on your next journey.
