There are legends and then there’s Ali - he’s in a different realm. His kindness and professionalism inspires us everyday. Imagine that even at 63 he’s still pulling more hours than most of the rest of the team. The odds that he’s gonna greet you at the door, serve you a plate of food and also wash your dishes are almost 💯, everyday, always. I’m mega mega proud and honored to call him my partner.
Here’s a few images of some amazing times chez Bocuse. The last time I went, he was working the dining room, shaking hands, posing for pictures. Limping from table to table. The Chef whites immaculately pressed and clean, and the hat as high as ever. After the meal we sat for a brief moment in the kitchen. He looked at me and asked “how many do you do for lunch?” Around 40 pax I replied. Bocuse lifted his head and smiled “well today we did 90” - He really was the boss to the end. - Bon voyage chef
