HOT NEWS! CHEF JEAN LAFONT, R.I.P.

Hello everyone and welcome!

Sad new a good friend of HOT  one of the finest and most influential chefs in Dallas, Jean LaFont, passed away late this afternoon. He was 72. According to his good friend and former student Mercury Chef Chris Ward, LaFont died from cancer which was detected around Christmas.

Jean was a gentle, caring, immensely talented man who influenced many people during his 35 years in Dallas. There are many chefs and restaurateurs in Dallas who owe their careers to LaFont. He also of course was a great Petanque player.  Several times he came to Austin to compete.  His jovial aspect of the game will  be miss. What a pleasure to play with him or against him. We love you Jean

You will be in our heart

Jean is standing on the right in the picture.
