Paul’s greatest legacy is his family and friends, they were his world. One of Paul’s true
joys in life was cooking and feeding those he loved. He was a talented chef and
treasured bringing people together around his food and meals eaten together. He lived
by a phrase his father taught him... “there's always room for one more at the dinner
table”. His recipes will live on in kitchens around the country.
