Joseph Romanowski, beloved Jersey Shore chef, dies (BAT)
I was aware that he had cancer. In fact he first was diagnosed some 3 years ago and with treatment, it went into remission. As I talked with folks who worked for him, he was ready to 'rebuild' after Sandy but relapsed with a major spreading of the disease.
He was the best. A great chef, who mentored many (including Drew Araneo) and best of all, he was a Deadhead. That makes him 'aces' in my book.
Fare you well, Fare you well,
I loved you more than words can tell.
Joe's cooking was often imitated, rarely equaled. Oh, how I'll miss his soups, his fried oysters, his short ribs or halibut dishes........
