The 91-year-old Chef, who had a triple heart bypass in 2005, suffered from Parkinson's disease for a long time.

The wife and children of master French chef Paul Bocuse want to honor their "captain", who has died at 91.

Paul Bocuse, the famed French chef whose family went on to open Les Chefs de France and Monsieur Paul in Epcot's France pavilion at the Walt Disney World Resort, has died.

He rose to fame in the 1970s as a proponent of "nouvelle cuisine", a healthier form of cooking. Gastronomy is in mourning. He earned a coveted third Michelin star in 1965 and was named Chef of the Century by the prominent Gault Millau restaurant guide in 1987.

British chef and TV presenter James Martin said he was saddened to hear that "the greatest of them all" had passed away, adding, "RIP the boss Paul Bocuse". "Simplicity and generosity. Excellence and art de vivre". "The pope of gastronomes leaves us".
