Gaston Lenôtre, wizard of French pastry and culinary empire builder, died January 8, 2008, according to the January 9, 2008 New York Times.
My fonder memories of Paris include gorging myself on Operas from his pastry shops. Not that other shops didn’t make swoon-worthy Operas, but somehow I just kept thinking of Lenôtre’s as the gold standard.
Thanks for the memories, Chef Lenôtre! You were really ours …
