    He was divorced twice.
    He was the subject of two lawsuits stemming from compensation of employees and violation of labor laws in 2003.
    Just months before his death, he was sued by wine collecting brothers Bekim and Ilir Frrokaj for selling them a counterfeit magnum bottle of 1945 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti for $46,000.
    He appeared in the film 'My Best Friends Wedding' saying, 'I will kill your whole family if you don't get this right! I need this perfect!'
    He earned a political science degree from the University of Wisconsin at Madison before beginning his culinary endeavors.
    He likened cooking to an improvisational jazz session in that as two riffs will never be the same, so too with food.
    He was awarded the Humanitarian of the Year award in 2005 by the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
    He refused to be associated with the animal rights group Farm Sanctuary stating, 'These people are idiots. Understand my position: I have nothing to do with a group like that. I think they're pathetic. Some of their tactics are crude and uncivilized even.'
    His cameo in 'My Best Friends Wedding' was meant to satirize the stereotypical screaming angry chef.
