This is not the time to bring up Paul Bocuse death hoaxes, because the legendary French chef and namesake of the Bocuse d’Or has actually been hospitalized in Lyon due to back pain.
He’s been struggling with Parkinson’s Disease for several years, which could have fooled us, because he’s so spry and energetic, but recent struggles have lead to a hospital check-in. He was also admitted to the hospital almost exactly a year ago after catching a bad cold on a hunting trip. We’ll keep you apprised of any updates as they become available and hope to see him back on his feet soon. Paul Bocuse turns 88 next month.
UPDATE (1/15/14): Paul Bocuse has been released today after back surgery. Told you he’d bounce back.
