    I'm not much of a cook but I always enjoyed watching Mr Food on the local news. Just about everything he made looked good to eat.

    I read that he passed away 2 days ago from cancer at 81.

    I remember watching him on the 6 o'clock new in Syracuse as a kid. RIP Mr. Food

    I used to enjoy watching him. Very sorry to hear of his passing.

    I'd like to think that there is a little piece of Mr. Food that lives on in all of us.

    Thanksgiving in heaven just got a little more "ooh it's so good."

    Rest in peace...I love cooking, and as a kid, Mr. Food's easier recipes were some of the first I tried...

    Our local morning news show runs his syndicated clips daily. Long story short, Mrs. Trailboss and I were wondering why he was featuring his assistant Howard so much recently-we just figured he was planning on retiring soon. Crap.
