I wondered who inspired Jim Henson and his Muppeteers to create the Swedish Chef. I'm sorry he passed on, but at least he could teach his knowledge to others in an institution of higher learning.

He was a great guy. My son worked with him years ago at the Manor House in UBE. He was a wonderful culinary teacher, and very witty.

Today, while looking for a recipe, I ran across "CHEF TELL'S QUICK CUISINE", his book that is prized in my collection. I wondered what had become of him and a flood of memories came to my mind. I went on line to see that he had passed away. I know this is a very late note praising him but I had to do it. In 1976 I interviewed Chef Tell for the executive chef position at the Historic Towne of Smithville. I was the President and General Manager at that time. We had dinner and long talks that evening. Unfortunately, I could not get the executive committee to agree on his requirements. Biggest mistake of my life. I should have fought for him. A wonderful man and a great Chef.
