The inventor of Nouvelle Cuisine has gone to that Great Chippie in the Sky.

Our plates shrank in anguish.

My dad was a fan of his. Some of the recipes in the cookbook my day had were interesting - "take 12 chickens.."

The inventor of Nouvelle Cuisine ...

Nouvelle Cuisine = Pay more, get less food!

Anyway, RIP, Mr Bocuse.

Rumour has it that when his doctor told him to lose weight he decided that everyone else would, too.

Nouvelle cuisine is a much misunderstood term. It’s about lighter cooking (as in fewer heavy sauces, shorter cooking times), and a greater emphasis on presentation but not necessarily smaller portions.

Bocuse was part of a genuine revolution that has had a lasting impact on gastronomy. For the better, in my view.

I understand he could be quite rude about 'nouvelle cuisine' which left diners hungry.
