Chef Matt Murphy Recovering

As we reported a few months ago, Chef Matt Murohy from the Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans, contracted a streptococcus infection that led to toxic shock syndrome and disseminated intravascular coagulation, a condition that prevents proper blood coagulation. Well after many surgeries, and treatments he is finally back on the mend. HERE is our original post.

If you go to you can read all about his recovery and all the efforts by his fellow chefs in New Orleans to raise money for his mounting medical bills. Matt, we are happy and relieved you are getting better, our prayers were always with you. See you soon at the Ritz-Carlton, maybe I'll pipe you a tune 'er two on my Uilleann Pipes.
