Former Princess hotels Executive Head Chef dies in France
Edmond Gurret, the former Executive Head Chef for the Princess hotel group, passed away on Sunday at the age of 82.
His death in Toulouse in his home country of France was announced yesterday by the LAlliance Française des Bermudes.
Mr Gurret was affectionately known as chef or Eddie.
The LAlliance press release said: He was a giant and a leading figure in the hotel industry both in Bermuda and abroad.
He had a great passion for life and for fine food, so much so that he was the recipient from the French Government of their highest medal for his contribution to French cuisine worldwide, Chevalier dans lOrdre du Mérite Agricole (Knight in the National Order of Agricultural Merit).
Very many Bermudians and the Princess hotel family will remember him as a fantastic chef who dedicated his working life to the Princess hotels. He loved so many people with whom he worked.
A full obituary for Mr Gurret will run in a forthcoming edition of The Royal Gazette.
