David Sterling, master of Yucatán cuisine, died

David Sterling, 1951-2016

He was my age

Quote:
Sterling, 65, was a designer, writer and chef. He founded Mérida’s Los Dos cooking school and the local chapter of the Slow Food market while devoting years on a well-received and weighty tome that documents the region’s food culture.
Quote:
Sterling’s Yucatán: Recipes from a Culinary Expedition (2014) was named “Best International Cookbook” and “Cookbook of the Year” by the James Beard Foundation. The thick, richly designed book has been uniformly praised for its thorough and authoritative documentation of Yucatán’s native ingredients and cooking methods.

And Sterling is seen on the current season of Rick Bayless’ “Mexico, One Plate at a Time,” which is devoted strictly to Yucatán. On the first day of filming, the famous Chicago chef made a beeline to Los Dos’ equally famous kitchen. Most recently, the Travel Channel called Los Dos one of the 10 best cooking classes in the world.

Bayless recalled his time with Sterling in a correspondence today with Yucatán Expat Life:

Quote:
There was no one more fascinated by, more enthusiastic about, more dedicated to the promotion of Yucatán and its cuisine than David Sterling. I was just reviewing the notes from my last class with David, reminding myself of his thoughtfulness and thoroughness. I am grateful to have spent time with David on so many occasions, to have shared some of his knowledge and passion. He will be sorely missed.

I never heard of him Ronaldo but I do love Yucatan cuisine and I will have to look him up.

Q.E.P.D.

Never heard of him.
I'm sorry he's dead but I have a hard time mourning someone I've never heard of.
Maybe if he was in Playa I would know who he was.
Methinks this was more of a random thought than a thread.

Glad it's him and not me.
Hope I have more than a year left.
