I am a very close friend of Chef Edward Nowakowski. I have helped him with most of his technical needs for many years.
It is with a very heavy heart that I bring to his followers the news of his death this past Wednesday, January 1, 2020.
Ed was having some difficulty with tiredness and some pain in his abdomen. He was having to stop during the day and rest. Finally, he followed the wishes of his family and friends and went to see his doctor. Unfortunately, he had waited too late for them to help him. Cancer was devouring him and had gotten too far along to save him. He is now buried in a grave next to his wife at the cemetery of the National Shrine of our Lady of Czestochowa in Doylestown, PA.
Chef Edward has influenced so many people over the years in the many places that he has lived and worked. His family, friends, and colleagues with whom he shared his soul and his knowledge will miss him greatly. I know I am so much the better for having known Ed.
May the Lord look after Ed as he is reunited with his loving wife Julia.
