Sad news for Chicago chef Grant Achatz

Chef Grant Achatz of Alinea has been diagnosed with stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma. It is with macabre and heartbreaking irony, that arguably one of the best Chefs in the world,  will undergo chemo to treat this life- threating cancer of the mouth. He is 33 years old.

Despite this diagnosis, he has as good an outlook as can be expected. Read the Chicago Tribune’s report here.

I know all of Chicago joins me in wishing him strength.
