Condolences and Tributes for Roger Andre Fessaguet

I will always remember M.Fessaguet as "Le Patron" of Le Poulailler where I had the distinction of serving as the night Saucier between 1978 and 1981. Rest assured his message was for all of us to be both men of honor and greater than ourselves. My time working during my young 20's shaped my lifelong personal values and work ethics. I will always be grateful and appreciative for the opportunity I was granted to serve Le Patron, including once having the honor of preparing his dinner of grilled pigeon.

I was deeply saddened by the news of Roger's passing. I have fond memories of the summer in Maine my father and I spent with Roger and the delicious meals he made for us. I will always remember his kindness and generosity and that happy, peaceful summer we all spent together.

It is with sadness that I read on the internet New York Times of Roger Fessaguet's passing. I have many fond memories of him and his late wife Annick. They go back to the late 60's and 70's. I enjoyed their hospitality at their home on Long Island, Maine, and of course dining at "la Caravelle" was always a great treat. I will never forget his kindness and generosity in helping me arrange a luncheon at the Maison Francaise at Columbia University where I was a graduate student. Roger was a kind man, a most engaged man in his profession and the French community of New York. It was an honor to have known him.

Roger was an icon, not only recognized as one of the finest French chefs in the U.S., but also as a great and proud food professional throughout the NY culinary circles and beyond. With Roger's passing we lose an influential voice on behalf of our profession, but we also gain cherished memories of a great and passionate chef and we honor his legacy.
