Whoooaa!!!

Very sad news for the Spanish restaurant scene!

(Can Fabes web site is offline due to traffic flooding).

Max.

      Most reports are saying that, while the exact cause of death is still unknown, it was likely a heart attack and not related to air travel.

        The El País article says he died in his restaurant in Singapore:

          What a shocker :-(
          I don't know what's going to happen to his Singapore venture now - it was a nice restaurant, situated right next to Guy Savoy's and 2 doors away from Tetsuya Wakuda's Waku Ghin.

          I was at Can Fabes a few years & simply loved his cooking. Still have his cookbook with his personalized message & signature. Sad :-(
