Here’s my Video Tribute to Charlie Trotter: http://youtu.be/KaXHBY9CU9g.

His iconic Michelin-starred restaurant received James Beard Foundation Awards.

Charlie Trotter opened Charlie Trotter’s (Chicago) in 1987 with his father, Bob Trotter as his partner. The restaurant has been open for almost 25 years.

Charlie went to the University of Wisconsin in Madison where he earned his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Political Science. After graduating from college, he traveled around the U.S. and Europe to dine at only the finest restaurants.

The figure who most impressed  Charlie during his culinary development was Fernand Point (of the famed Ma Gastronomie). Trotter never went to culinary school. His first cooking job was at Sinclair’s on the North Shore. He was a cook there and worked under Norman Van Aken and Carrie Nahabedian.

Chef Trotter established the Charlie Trotter Culinary Education foundation. This foundation supplies scholarships to students entering culinary programs. He also spearheaded the Excellence Program which allows high school students to come in and experience the cuisine of the restaurant.
