I don't know what else to say. Mrs Cavfancier just took the time to tell us that cav is gone. All I want is to have a place for us all to sit together.
I'm so glad you're here, l'k.
I just read this on the other thread. I am so sad... I just can't believe it.
I don't think it's a very acceptable belief.
I have to call Setanta.
This isn't going to be easy.
Omg......I have no words, just stunned.
this circle of friends, small though we are, will not become less but gain in our strength through each other.
I miss him mightily. Don't know what to say.
There was one together dude. Isn't it amazing how we get to love -- and, in some cases, hate -- people we have never actually met in the flesh? I feel I knew Cav as well as I know a lot of people I see daily. His death diminishes me.
Agreed Merry Andrew
Its so strange to have reality hit you in the face in a virtual world. I never had a problem with anything Cav had to say...I regarded him with the utmost respect.
Found his Chef Cav homepage when going through some earlier posts.
I like this quote he put on there: "Champagne Dreams for Truffled Times"
How very Cav.
Too sad right now.
cav and i had some good times in the music forum
here's a tune that's quite fitting for a wake
the parting glass
Oh, all the money e'er I had, I spent it in good company.
And all the harm that ever I've done, alas it was to none but me.
And all I've done for want of wit to mem'ry now I can't recall;
So fill to me the parting glass, Good night and joy be with you all.
If I had money enough to spend, and leisure time to sit awhile.
There is a fair maid in this town, that sorely has my heart beguiled.
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips, I own, she has my heart in thrall;
Then fill to me the parting glass, Good night and joy be with you all.
Oh, all the comrades e'er I had, they're sorry for my going away.
And all the sweethearts e'er I had, they'd wished me one more day to stay.
But since it falls unto my lot, that I should rise and you should not,
I gently rise and softly call, Goodnight and joy be with you all.
music is good, thanks dj.
Cav was pleased with his recent inclusion in the Toronto Life entertainment guide <is anyone else shaking?>

Having eschewed the traditional restaurant route, Chef Paul Mesbur-who trained with superchefs Michael Stadtländer and Jamie Kennedy-shines most brightly when customizing a fine-dining experience in his clients' homes. Dinner might begin on a delicate note with asparagus consommé and enoki mushrooms before moving on to tender grilled octopus with an assertive salsa of spicy kiwi and papaya. Richly dense oxtail terrine follows a summer salad studded with brandied dried apricots and cranberries. Sesame-crusted beef tenderloin benefits from a Thai marinade that thrills with its assertive salty-sweetness, and a mango mousse with pine nut and mint chiffonade provides a subtly pleasing finale. Savvy oenophiles count on a certified sommelier to match wines with Mesbur's custom- designed, plated dinners that stretch anywhere from three to 10 courses.
My kitchen's just not up to those standards, but I do have some dried cranberries - so let's enjoy them.
Thanks littlek for making a place for us to remember Cav. Too many times this last few years hearing of such infections going out of control. I bet he and Mrs. Cav gave it their all, nothing less. Sigh. As JG would say, prayers winging.
glad to do it cobalt - good to see you.
