Breaking News: Spanish Chef Santi Santamaria Dead in Singapore

Santi Santamaria

It's a sad day. The culinary world has lost a true giant. Seven Michelin Star Chef Santi Santamaria from Catalunya, Spain has died from an apparent heart attack today at his restaurant in Singapore. Known as much for his feud with Ferran Adria as for his great restaurants El Raco de Can Fabes  in Sant Celoni just outside of Barcelona and Santceloni in Madrid, Santamaria was indisputably a great chef. I will never forget the meal I had at Can Fabes in 2004. The roasted leg of goat in partticular still gets my digestive juices flowing when I think about it. He was 53. RIP.
