Kurt Waldele

Executive chef at the National Arts Centre for thirty years, recently retired, battling cancer, Kurt Waldele died this past Saturday. Reflections on his life and work from his friend Ron Eade can be found on Ron’s blog, Omnivore’s Ottawa.http://communities.canada.com/ottawacitizen/blogs/omnivore/default.aspx As Ron reports, funeral arrangements include an honour guard of the city’s chefs, and will take place at Notre Dame Cathedral at 2pm on Thursday.  My profound sympathies to his family and to the wide community of friends and colleagues who grieve his passing.  The Canadian culinary world has lost an icon.
