‘Mister Food’ Dies of Cancer at 81

Art Ginsburg, the TV chef who appeared on many local TV stations as “Mr. Food” has died after a yearlong battle with pancreatic cancer.

Ginsburg ended every segment where he gave simple cooking recipes for home chefs with his signature, “Oooh!  It’s so good!”

The “Mr. Food” franchise started in 1975 and five years later was syndicated in 9 markets.  In 1982, King World, currently CBS Television Distribution, began national syndication of the segments which are still aired in over 120 markets.

The “Mr. Food” website posted the news to its website saying,

Art’s commitment to anyone-can-do recipes and passion for helping others made him well-loved among his peers and among television viewers and website visitors. He was one of the first television celebrity chefs and paved a road for many who came after him.  His greatest love was for his wife, Ethel, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his daily visit into your homes via the television.
