RIP: Charlie Trotter

Charlie-Trotter-150.jpgThe Leonard Lopate Show honors the passing of legendary Chicago chef Charlie Trotter by sharing an interview the chef from 2004. Says Trotter: "In my early days I was certainly consumed with this idea of pursuing perfection and then I realized that was a little bit boring. So I ended up thinking maybe it's more interesting to try to gain something that's original and something that's unique to the way I look at food and everything else ... Don't get me wrong, I haven't abandoned perfection." [WNYC]
