The master pastry chef Gaston Lenotre, who had trained, among other great chefs, Ducasse and Herme at some point in their respective careers, has just died at 88. He had created an empire with shops in 12 countries and a renowned pastry school in France. He was also a household name in France and the rest of the world whose name had become synonymous with excellence in the art of pastry. He will be sorely missed by all the passionate professional and amateur chefs.
