Joel Robuchon, the French master chef who delighted diners with his simple yet delicious creations, has passed away at age 73.
His spokeswoman told French TV station BFM and Le Figaro newspaper that the beloved chef died in Geneva this Monday after losing his battle to cancer.
RadarOnline.com has learned Robuchon won at least six awards throughout his career, including the James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant. He also wrote eight cook books and prepped his delightful meals at many five-star restaurants in Asia, Europe and North America.
Robuchon will be remembered not only for his kind soul and cooking talent, but also for his love of minimalism in food, and in life. In his books, he constantly reminded chefs and aficionados of the importance of keeping things natural and simple.
He is survived by his daughter Sophie and son Louis.
