The ultimate foodie, Dom DeLuise, passed away yesterday at age 75.
It was thirty years ago, when I met the kind and generous comic during a school trip to 20th Century Fox Studio. Dom came out to greet us kids, and then he invited us onto the “Fatso” set (directed by Anne Bancroft) for an impromptu tour! The film’s continuity supervisor had an absolute fit, but Dom thought it was hilarious.
I personally find it funny, that 30 years later I’m so obsessed with my food WRITING… almost as much as his character was about food EATING.
He will most definitely be missed.
If you’ve never seen the movie “Fatso”, it’s available on Netflix.
He also penned several cookbooks available on Amazon.
