I wrote an essay about my intersections with chef Robert Reynolds, who died in August 2012 of brain cancer. He was an amazing and wonderful man, who was generous with his time, his food, and his extreme joie de vivre. He was also my neighbor. Look him up. Find his books. Read his blog. Take a class at the cooking school he founded. You'll quickly see why he was beloved by so many, and why he will be missed so much.
