Chicago Chefs Hall of Fame: Paul Kahan, Alain Roby And Richard Melman

I was celebrating with many great chefs last night at Castle.


Swiss-born steak chef Hans Aeschbacher, French cuisine chef Jean Banchet, and Louis Szathmary, the late and former chef of the long-shuttered Bakery in Lincoln Park, were also named “Legendary Chefs” by the museum.

Chef Charlie Trotter the first inductee donated $5,000.00

Since 2006, the Chicago Culinary Museum has honored the likes of Charlie Trotter, whose eponymous restaurant shuttered last year, Rick Bayless, known for his Mexican restaurants, and Priscila Satkoff, who opened her own restaurant Salpicón after working alongside Bayless.
