          I've been out of town on a family emergency and just learned about this.

          I had the great pleasure of getting to know Greg a bit through interviews and features I wrote about him over the past few years.

          I just told my husband and he said, I'm glad we saw him recently and that he seem so happy. Greg enjoyed making food for people and he honored the history of the food he made.

              Sad, indeed. My favorite anecdote about Gregg, his encounter with Warren Buffett: http://www.boston.com/ae/celebrity/articles/2011/07/22/warren_buffett_sure_likes_boston_speed_dog/
