Chef Richard Obituary, Death –┬áThe world-famous pastry chef Richard Capizzi lost his valiant battle with cancer in September. He fought the disease for a very long time. Both Christal Young and his brother Paul, who is the manager of the technical department at FOX, contributed significantly to the telling of his narrative. Richie was the name that most of his relatives and friends called him. His large heart and broad smile were two of the most distinguishing features of his personality.

Paul asserts that he has always held a ferocious resolve, from the time he was a child until he reached maturity. This trait served him well throughout his life. This was present in every aspect of his behavior. It was during Richie’s time as a student in high school that he first became interested in the culinary arts. He took the decision to enroll in a culinary program after working at a local bakery for some time and gaining some valuable experience. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, he began his professional life in the hospitality business in Las Vegas.

Subsequently, he worked as an apprentice at the Grand Hotel in Monte Carlo. After returning from his trip throughout Europe, he was almost instantly called “the pastry prodigy” upon his arrival back in the United States. His triumph in 2003 won him the title of “Pastry Chef of the Year,” making him the youngest and the first pastry chef in the history of the competition to gain first place overall. In addition, he was the first person to win first place overall in the category of pastry chef.

After that, he got his start in the culinary world by becoming an apprentice to the well-known chef Thomas Keller. Keller asserts that instructing him was not difficult for him to accomplish because he was a hard worker who genuinely cared for his customers and was always the leader of the team. Keller also adds that he was able to learn a lot from him. Keller called him a “magnet.”
