The James Beard Foundation is deeply saddened by the news of acclaimed chef Homaro Cantu's passing yesterday at the age of 38. "The culinary community mourns the tragic loss of chef Homaru Canto, an immensely talented chef and friend of the James Beard Foundation,” said JBF president Susan Ungaro. “I fondly recall visiting his hydroponic farm at Moto last year and enjoyed his contagious enthusiasm for the next new thing. We will never know what more he could have accomplished. His loss is ours.”
