Moira Breen points to a post by Isntapundit regarding the suicide of French chef Bernard Loiseau. Dipnut has had experience working in a restaurant and feels a keen sympathy for the tormented chef. I feel somewhat chastised, though I took my shot not at the chef, but at the tiny portions that are served in "nouvelle cuisine" in a comment on Mac Thomason's site. I have never met a man who left one of these restaurants without a desire to pop by Burger King or IHOP to find something to fill himself up.
As a cook who's happy just to hear my (edit: hollow-legged) boys say, "Geez, Janis, that was AWESOME," I hope Mr. Loiseau now rests in peace.
UPDATE: According to this story of his funeral, his widow says he was "totally exhausted".
