Top Chef Masters Star Floyd Cardoz Dies at 59 from Coronavirus

Facebook

His company, Hunger Inc, released an official statement sharing that the respected chef had died. Hospitality, on 25 March 25, in New Jersey, USA. "RIP cheffie. #corona". Cardoz is survived by his mother, wife and two sons. He was first admitted to the hospital with a fever and tested positive for COVID-19 one week ago.

Last week, Cardoz shared with his Instagram followers that he admitted himself to a hospital because he felt "feverish" several days after returning to New York City from Frankfurt, Germany.

"As a precautionary measure, we have informed the Health Department in Mumbai about the same". In partnerships with Danny Meyer and Union Square Hospitality Group, the restaurant enjoyed an instant buzz after receiving three stars in the New York Times. The restaurant closed in 2010, but earned Cardoz four nominations for the James Beard Award for Best Chef between 2004 and 2007.

Many are mourning this vast loss to the culinary world.

The now-independent foundation, referred to as the Young Scientist Foundation, enables high school and college students to work alongside accomplished researchers to develop new treatments for diseases, according to a spokesperson for Cardoz's company. As the co-founder and culinary director of Hunger Inc, which runs The Bombay Canteen (TBC), O Pedro, and most recently, the Bombay Sweet Shop, Cardoz was responsible for the culinary philosophy of the restaurants. The chef had traveled to Mumbai before he returned to NY through Frankfurt airport on March 8.

A chef by profession, he was born in Mumbai and graduated as a biochemist. Floyd also had restaurants in NYC. Food writer Roshni Bajaj Sanghvi who has known him for a decade said, "Chef Floyd elevated the way we looked at Indian food, both here and overseas". On his day, Cardoz could out-cook anyone else, as demonstrated most memorably during the 2011 season of the American hit television series, Top Chef Masters.

Cardoz's restaurant The Bombay Canteen seemingly confirmed the owner's death on Instagram. Earlier this month, he was traveling in India to film an episode of the Netflix program "Ugly Delicious" with actor Aziz Ansari - a journey that he joyfully began chronicling on his Instagram account. "He made a connection with different people, so much so that anytime anyone from the chef fraternity got to know that I was from India, they would talk to me about Floyd", he said.
