too many recipes to even think right now... lets see. The oven beef burgundy...beef bourguignon, the diabetic chicken cordon bleu in the muffin tins, the steak tips in the diabetic book, the mexican chicken and rice (instant rice). Those are just a few. Mr Food has helped me feed my family for years!

I never was much on watching the News, but when I did I remember seeing Mr. Food and being impressed with his recipes. I was excited to discover his website "Mr. Food's Test Kitchen", I receive emails and enjoy all the recipes that are on the site. Now I enjoy watching the Recipes of the Day videos.

I remember watching Mr Food in the Boston Area on NewsCenter at Noon After Art passed NewsCenter stopped carrying the Mr Food segment in their Noon newscast I don't know why and I would love to see it return to NewsCenter since I still watch that newscast I did not know Art had passed because of the discontinuation of the segment right after his passing with no explanation I distinctly remember his OOH IT'S SO GOOD line at the end of each segment I sorely missed the segments and didn't even know it still existed until about months ago when I ran into it on the internet simply by accident and remembered the name and tagline I immediately went to the website and signed up I look forward to your daily e-mails and have nearly of your recipes in my recipe box I make one almost every day I miss ArtRead More I hope Howard can get back to my Noon newscast to keep Art's legacy alive in the Boston Area for years to come

Hi there, Chef Jeff! Thank you for the kind words. While we are no longer aired in the Boston area, you can sign up for our daily eNewsletters or visit to see our Recipes of the Day videos. :) Enjoy!

I started watching Mr, Food while staying with my Mom in Oregon. It was a Portland station that she loved and his show was her favorite. I began to see why and we both miss him a lot because he was ,"OOH, So Good"!

You can never go wrong by keeping this dear man's memory alive. I'd love to see some of his classic segments archived here. I've recently been diagnosed with diabetes, and this site is going to be invaluble to me me in the future. Thanks to you, and to Art, for making a difference.

Thank you for your kind message! We will be adding some of Art's classic videos to site soon, so be on the lookout for them. :) We also have a diabetic-friendly website that you would love: Thanks again and we hope you have a wonderful day.

I watched Mr. Food for many years with my mother on WDTN in Dayton, Ohio. We have collected all of his cookbooks and use them religiously. I miss him dearly!!

I loved watching his shows. He was such a great cook and very helpful. He made cooking fun. We will miss him, but honor his memory in our holiday and special day cooking. I love the old shows and thank you for keeping them on here for us to view. Blessings, CJ Matt D

I just plain miss him! What great man. He came to so many of the telethons to raise money for children's hospital in Buffalo, NY. Will we ever really stop missing him?

I remember watching Mr. Food on our local station and how I looked forward to whatever recipe he would give that day and what a comforting feeling it was to see him and his enthusiasm--God give him joy in heaven as he gave joy to so many

We moved to Wyoming in 1997, and my oldest daughter (12 at the time) was distraught at the loss of Mr. Food on TV! I didn't find the website until many years later and have now moved back to a location where it is aired. Ok with the "crew" but no one can replace Mr. Food....oooh he was so good! (sorry! Just had to!)

I was introduced to Mr. Food 2 years ago when my husband got sick and my friend brought over some chicken noodle soup for him. It was delicious and asked where she got the recipe, she said Mr. Food. I went on the web site and now have nearly 400 recipes. My friend passed away the day after Thanksgiving 2012. Every time I go into my recipe box I think of her and the fun we had. I miss her and Mr. Food, but the recipes bring back wonderful memories. The website is great, keep up the good work.

GOD BLESS

Mr.Foods has been my favorite chef for years, one of the recipes my family loved the most is called the canolli pie. It's been a big favorite for years. And a hit at many gatherings. I know that Mr. Foods is looking down upon us. And probbaly cooking up a storm in heaven. God be with everyone who has enjoyed his recipes.

I first found Mr Food when I was a teenager and saw him on the Noon today to feed my famNews. I started using his recipes then when I learned to cook and still use them ily of four.

Mr. Food's recipes are the ones I access most. The down-to-earth ingredients and easy cooking have kept me in tasty dishes for years. R.I.P. Art - may you be whipping up new dishes in the best-equipped kitchen in heaven!

Loved Mr. Food! I have a few of his cookbooks and the recipes are "Ohhhhh, so good!!!!!

Back in the 1990's my Mother use to watch Mr. Food at noon and many times she'd call me and invite me to dinner. When I got engaged she and my fiance' would talk about Mr. Food's daily show. Since she passed away my husband has been discovering some of the MAGIC recipes she had from Mr. Food. Well, my Mother & Dad must be very happy in Heaven now that Mr. Food is up there too. RIP Mr. Food.

I watched Art on Channel 12 out of Cape Girardeau, MO when my oldest daughter was born, I requested a mashed potato recipe and at that time (1985) it came by mail. I still have that recipe today and have used it countless times. I have been following the website for some time now and I enjoy it. God Bless and keep you, Art.


Through the time that I have been working with his recipes there have been many that I have enjoyed. May there be many more Les

Mr Food was always upbeat and was a pleasure to everyone. He will be missed.

I began watching Mr. Food on Channel 7 in Boston after I had my daughter and I was not working days anymore. I have tried many recipes and enjoyed watching him. I was saddened to hear of his passing, he made food fun and he will be condolences to his family.

I just started watching Mr. Food this summer on my Shreveport station. I hadn't cooked in years (thanks to my DH) and after retiring, I started again using Mr. Food recipes. Easy, tasty & just what we needed! I also found out recently that I'm diabetic & eagerly downloaded the e-recipes for diabetics. I'm so sad to see him go. He helped me restore my confidence in the kitchen while following the diabetic suggestions. My condolences to the family & his many friends.

My husband started watching Mr. Food when he was down with a back injury. I have used many of them. My husband has also used many of his ideas for bbqing meat. We will miss him. Please keep the recipes coming. We will miss watching him. He was a great person.

It saddens me to hear of the passing of Mr. Food. I thoroughly enjoyed trying many of his recipes and I do have my favorites that I use a lot. He will truly be missed. My prayers and blessings go to Arts family.

I was shocked to hear the news. I have retired in March of this year, and really enjoyed watching Mr. Food on his program, KFVS TV in Cape Girardeau, Mo. I have tried several of his recipes and loved each one. They were 'So Good'! I am truly going to miss him.

I'm am truly sorry to hear that Art will no longer be with us. Sincere sympathy goes out to all his family and friends. I have spent years making one of my favorite appetizers which everyone loves. This has been a yearly event for me. If you love stuffed mushrooms, his Pistaschio Stuffed Mushrooms are the best, you must try them R.I.P. you will be truly missed

Every day I made sure that I would watch Mr. Food and I have quite afew of his recipes. He will really be missed in my house hold. May God be with his family now and always.

The video is beautiful, I would like to see more on his whole life and career as Mr. Food. Thanks and please do carry on his great work with food.

I will certainly miss my noon recipes from Mr. Food. I think that my favorite was Microwave Pickles. I made them often and had lots of comments and was asked for the recipe. I always gave Mr. Food the credit. How simple to make sweet pickles in about 10 minutes. I want to wish all his family and his many friends sympathy and love. May he rest in peace and be our chef in heaven.

"I tried to watch Mr. Food every day on my local NBC OKC affiliate. I was shocked when I learned how sick he was. He is the second man to so inspire me. My father worked right up to the end with pancreatic cancer, and whenever I start feeling sorry for myself, I think of him; now, I have a second inspiration. His receipes have bailed me out in a pinch SO many times. I am a guy, and also love to cook, and experiment. I will remember his "Ohhh- So GOOD!" forever.

I was so sorry to hear Mr Food died. I was actually making his Chocolate Cream Pie for Thanksgiving when I heard the news on the television. His recipes were always very easy and a favourite with all my family, as was the Pie we all ate on Thanksgiving...Thank you Mr. Food. You will be missed!

Watching Mr. Food was a pleasure-his upbeat attitude was so wonderful. God Bless Mr. Food and his family. We will miss him.

I used to watch Mr. Food everyday before i went off to school. It was one of the last segments i saw before i left. It's sad that he passed away.

I have been watching Mr. Food off/on for more than 30 years. I have seen him change through the years and gotten to know his humor and love of food that I feel like I've lost a part of my family. I will miss seeing him and hope that the recipes will continue as he may be gone, but will never be forgotten!

I will miss Mr. Food great recipes.

I am a recipe addict and I have spent many hours searching through Mr. Food recipes. I will miss seeing him on tv. My prayers and condolences go out to his wife and family and his staff and co-workers.

I so looked forward to Art on TV and to a new recipe to try. His recipes were simple and easy, but good food. I always was asked for the dessert recipes from Mr Food. They were tasty. We will miss him so much, my heart and prayers go to the family for comfort. I only hope his program will go on. Love you Mr Food!!

I just found out that Mr. Food has passed. I looked forward to watching him and waited for him to come on TV. We have been remodeling our home. We had to remove the TVs because of the dust from the drywall and sawing. I'm so terribly sad to hear about Mr. Food. He was such a joy! Please keep his spot open. I know that you can't replace him but maybe you could find a new face to fill spot with love. Love to all who loved this special man! He was so good!!!!

We had Mr. Food's "Skillet Meatloaf" just last night - one of many family favorites from a man who touched so many lives. Our sympathies to his family and co-workers - he will be sorely missed by all.

I am so sad to hear about Art Ginsburg. My love and prayers to Mrs Ginsburg, all his family and friends. I loved his recipes and listening to his "oooh, it's soo good" It makes me smile to even hear the phrase. I use his recipes often and I love the web site and his e-newsletters. Rest in peace and know you have taught so many the good things in life.

I was so sad to hear the one and only Mr. Food had passed away. I loved watching his program every day. He gave such wonderful dishes that I just had to try. Every time I made a new dish of Mr. Food's I told my husband, " Compliments of Mr. Food," He will be missed. Thank you for everything, Prayers to the family.

Art Ginsburg made a difference in many people lives by making good food easy. It sounds so simple but is so important to the enjoyment of our daily lives to enjoy our meals together. Many years ago I did a lot of complicated cooking but for the last 20 years I just did plain unimaginative meals. Mr. Food go me back to the enjoyment of cooking and sharing. I would like to say a heartfelt - Thank You - My condolences to the family.

Casondras1 I was very sorry to hear Mr. Food had passed. Never knew him but he seemed very, very friendly and always welcoming. I'm going to miss very much hearing "OOH ITS SO GOOD".

How sad :( I thought he was so funny as a kid.

I was saddened when i learned Mr. food had passed. He brightened my day. And most of the time his show was the only none depressing thing on the news. Condolences to his family an friends.

"Death by Chocolate" is the perfect euphamism for this very special soul we all had a chance to learn and laugh by. I hope his family keeps the show going as we all have something to learn everyday about food.

I was deeply shocked when I heard about his passing! I LOVED Mr. Food!! I hope that they still keep his segment going with reruns otherwise I will feel lost. He has been part of my day for soooo long. Condolences to his family!

Thank you for your comments, we appreciate your candor. However, this was one of Mr. Food's all-time favorite recipes. Art believed that if you were going to go for it, go big and this is a BIG dessert! Much thought was placed into selecting recipes to air this week to pay tribute to our friend, Art Ginsburg. So, thank you again and we hope you enjoy the recipes we selected for the remainder of the week.

This afternoon I tuned into my local Boston TV station expecting to watch the usual segment, only to discover the sad news of Art Ginsburg's passing. What a terrible loss to Mr. Food's many fans everywhere. And, what a wonderful legacy he left; to live life with a passion and share that passion so enthusiastically with others. Sincere condolences to his family. May his memory forever be a blessing to all those who knew him.

Mr.Food; will miss you terribly! Although I've cooked and baked for may years, you were the altimate helper in my kitchen! Made things so much easier and quicker ........... my family always benefited as well as myself. I send my deepest sympathy to your "FAMILY and FRIENDS." You will always be in their hearts and memories. And I myself will think of you with much fondness. You certainly will be missed by 'the many'! And I pray that each day the heartache will lessen for your 'loved ones.' RIP With heavy heart and deep sympathy, "little ole' Ohio cook," Sherry 11/27/12

Mr Food was part of the noon news on KTTC - it's just not the same without him saying "Ooh it's so good"! He will be sadly missed but always remembered.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Food at a local bookstore in Pineville, La. back in the '90's. Such a delightful, good spirited man.

I used to watch Mr. Food on our Miami, Fl. station at the noon news hour. I loved his recipes and still have the copies of the recipes I requested (LONG before computer days). My family also met Art at a Chili cookoff in Ft. Lauderdale Florida in the late 1980's. He was every bit as genuine as he seemed on TV. He even greeted my baby daughter who was ordinarily terrified of strangers but he had such an infectious smile that even she warmed up to him right away...Art will be sorely missed!

I learned how to cook watching Mr. Food. His enthusiastic personality got me hooked on cooking and watching his recipes each morning. My husband and son say "Oooh it's soo good" each time I try one of his quick recipes. I cried for him and his family when I heard about him. God bless you and thank you for sharing Mr. Food, Art, with us. I will truly miss him.

I always watched MR. FOOD on my local news channel. I always loved trying his recipes. My favorite is his peanut butter fudge.

One of my favorite personalities will truly be missed.

I was saddened to hear of "Mr Foods" death. I loved him and his work. Through his death I am learning more about the man and his legacy apart from the food world. He will be sorely missed not just by his family, but his fans which I am one and will always will be. Goodbye Art and you are "Ooooh Soooo GOOD!"

"Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a teardrop" I do love his recipes, they are down to earth. No fancy ingredients, just simply everyday ingredients and easy directions. I will surely miss Mr. Food and his smile and his "OOH IT'S SO GOOD"

The NFRA membership is saddened to hear of the passing of our good friend Art Ginsgurg. Mr. Food has been the spokesman for the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association helping to spread the word about the benefits of frozen and refrigerated dairy in our daily lives. We have enjoyed his enthusiasum for the food industry and our partnership with Mr. Food and his wonderful staff. Most of all we will miss our friendship developed over the past few years. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ginsburg Family and the Mr. Food staff during this difficult time

Mr. Food was one of the most genuine, most caring and most loving people I have ever known and had the pleasure to work with. He did so much for our annual Variety Kids Telethon. He would always make sure that he was here to help the kids! For 19 years he came "home" to Buffalo and WKBW-TV to co-host the annual Telethon. Even when the Telethon was not on the air, he would call all throughout the year to see how plans were going, offer ideas and anything he could do to help. We would chat about everything and anything and he was always there to listen and help. I am going to miss him tremendously...he truly was....SO GOOD!! Rest In Peace my friend....I love you and will miss you. Steve Podosek, Variety Kids Telethon Executive Producer

I have watched Mr. Food for many years and will miss his show. I have learned so much from him and his cooking. RIP Mr. Food. Thank you for all the help of my cooking and be better in the kitchen. I will charish everything. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family.

RIP, Mr. Food. I had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Ginsburg and his wife as they were regulars at my theater. I am hard-pressed to remember any guest who was kinder, gentler, funnier or more gracious. He truly knew that life is "sooooo good!" The world was a better (and tastier) place because of his presence.

I always looked forward Mr Food's segment on the noon news. He was always so upbeat, chipper, and *always* made everything he made look easy to prepare. Au revoir, Mr. Food, and may you find eternal happiness in heaven's kitchen. <><

I got interested in cooking again after watching him on TV. I learned that cooking did not have to be a chore. He will be greatly missed.

I only began to receive Mr. Food recipes on-line almost a year ago, but deeply appreciated the variety and tasty & simple dishes presented. Thank you with deep regrets over the passing of Mr. Ginsberg.

But our lives were blessed with the way delivered his message with a kind smile, we will miss him.

He was a true treasure for all and I hope his family realizes how much people thought of him. He started as a caterer, but became the Chef of Choice for many of us. He was real, not phony.

I met Art just under 25 years ago while employed at WEAU television in Eau Claire, WI. There are many attributes of this "gentle man" that really impressed me, however his genuine inner person and his caring for others were the most obvious. He truly was an inspiration to everybody, not just those with culinary skills. His family is in our thoughts. Doug B.

i'll be keeping all his family in my prayers and thought. Ethel and his family you are not alone. the whole world who knew him will be mourning as well. long live his spirit.

What sad news. When I grew up in Florida, my dad loved to watch his show. It inspired him to make so many wonderful dishes and I also became a fan. As soon as you heard the "OOH..." you knew who it was. When I got married we watched him and so did my dad and father-in law together. We have three kids who all love to cook especially our 11 year old Sydney. Mr. Food, our have inspired many generations in our family and we will miss you. Our deepest sympathy to your family, friends and everyone in the test kitchen. McCoy Family NC

When I was young Mr Food aired on WCVB in Boston and I watched their noon news simply so I could watch him on days I didn't have school While my mother and my grandmothers showed me the basics of how to cook Mr Food along with Julia Child and The Frugal Gourmet were three of the greatest influences on my actual love for cooking They helped me to see the possibilities of cooking and it has served me well from simply taking care of myself as an adult to cooking for friends and family Television has lost one of its greatest personalities culinary arts one of the most practical practitioners and future generation of youngsters one more source of practical real-life education My sincerest condolences to the Ginsburg family and the staff of Mr Food at what I know must be a very difficult time Take comfort in that heRead More provided millions with the confidence to improve their lives through the joy of cooking and showed many an inquisitive youngster as myself how to cook cook well and enjoy it

RIP Mr. Art Ginsburg aka Mr. Food. I learned a lot from you over the years. Thank you for all the great recipes. You will be missed.

For years, my family watched Mr. Food on WHEC-TV (Rochester, NY). He was always so upbeat and his recipes are so easy to follow. My sympathies to his family. He will be greatly missed!

Rest In Peace Mr. Food!

I remember Art Ginsburg from my days as a Visual & Performaing Arts student at Russell Sage College in Troy, New York. Sitting in a little black box theater wondering who this obviously highly respected man was who was sitting there watching a rehearsal of our latest musical. I remember that he was kind.

Strong and kind. He WAS Tevye.

Always enjoyed his recipes and video's. He will be sorely missed! May the grace of God be with his family in the coming year; Respectfully Lee & Bonnie Lincoln

Sympathy and prayers go out to Mr. Food's Family. He will be missed! Thanks to him I have found many "oh its soooo good recipes".

I own every cookbook that Mr. Food authored. My husband and I met him at the Philadelphia airport in 2010 after a Today Special Value of TV Favorites on QVC, I told him I owned all and every one of his cookbooks, but did not have the new one. He got a copy from his manager and promptly autographed it with a very nice personal message. We went to the US Airway lounge and there he was again. We had the honor of spending another hour with him and will treasure that time we got to spend with him. A wonderful man, our hearts go out to his family.

I am so very sorry to hear about Mr. Food's passing. I just loved him and all of his appreciation for food. I shall miss him deeply. My thoughts and prayers are with his dear family.

I am personally blessed in having Mr. Food personally as a dear friend and cooking mentor. Mr. Food and I enjoyed dinner together when he did a book signing in New York. We had lovely conversations and he was very happy to sign every single one of my Mr. Food cookbooks! I am an avid cook and Art was instrumental in helping me make my decision approximately 10 years ago to become a chef's assistant for a country club in New York. He was very proud of me and I will always remember and never forget my dear compassionate friend "Mr. Food". After 30+ years, I still use/refer to all of his cookbooks. I am deeply saddened and will miss him dearly. My thoughts and prayers to his family at this difficult time. Rest in Peace my dearest cooking friend in the whole world. I love you!

I am blessed in having known Mr Food personally, and feel his loss deeply. He saved this diabetic from death by following his recipes from his diabetic cookbooks. To his family, friends, and fans, I am so struck by his death. RIP, my dear friend Art.

I am sad. I loved his fun, easy recipes. Prayers for his family and gratitude for his work. He will be missed.

So sorry to hear about his passing. I loved his show!!!! RIP Mr.Food, prayers go out to his family at this time. :-(

I am saddened to find out that Art Ginsburg has passed. He was on QVC not too long ago promoting a book. Had no idea he was ill and with pancreatic cancer. He was a great teacher and showed me and others some techniques in cooking that we otherwise would not have known about. Thank you Mr Food and may you now be pain free and resting peacefully. My condolences to his family.

I so loved hearing him say "Oooh, it's so good!" I never tired of the phrase and will miss him a lot.

My wife and I met Mr Food and Mrs Food while on our honeymoon in Riveria Maya in May of 2005 we were staying at the same resort. At the time we didnt realize that his was a national show, we had always thought he was local to our area. They were gracious enough to take several pictures with us and we still tell friends and family about that honeymoon encounter. RIP...

Mr. Food was a great friend that I looked forward to each day on TV and in my email. His receipes were fun and didn't require special ingredients. I will always remember his joy for great taste. I will miss him very much.

I have made many of your recipes and have loved them all RIP and god bleeds your wife and family

I am very sad to hear this I can remember my parents watching Mr.Food when I was a child. My prayers go out to his Wife & Family

Mr. Ginsburg will truly be missed. His dedication and friendly presence on the tube were so welcome each weekday. His recipes are so reliable that they have made up a great deal of my cooking for the past several years. I am very sad to see him gone,and send my prayers to his family and friends. He made life much brighter for many of us.

I am truly saddened to hear about this death. I have soooooooo many of his cookbooks and always enjoyed seeing him on tv. He actually taught me that cooking could be FUN!!!

My condolences. His catch phrase and his pep on tv always made my day.

My deepest sympathy goes to his wife, family and friends...I have enjoyed watching Mr. Food for many years and I will miss him. What a knowledge base of recipes he has left for everyone, and the TV programs, all delivered with his unique personality. He just seemed like such a nice man to me...we need more like him in this world.

Mr. Food cooked from the heart, with a common-sense approach to produce healthy, tastful and good looking dishes that appealed to both the palette and the eye. His understanding of the term "comfort food" made each of associate some fond memory from our past with most of the recipes he prepared for us. Rest in Peace, Mr. Food, the recipes and memories you have left us with were sooooo good!

Deeply saddened by Arts passing, went to my handy dandy receipe helper for Thanksgiving and just found out about Art...a great chef and person will be missed by all

I remember some years back when I first saw Art on TV news doing one of his thousands of recipes. Each and every recipe he did on the show always bought a huge smile to my family and myself. Art you will truly be missed here, but I know now you are in Heaven giving all the Angels cooking tips. We will always miss you good friend.

Many thanks to him for all the good recipes and tips through the years. He will be greatly missed.

I loved getting Mr. Food's emails each day and saved everyone of them in my recipe folder in my email. I will treasure each and every one of them more deeply now. Even though I have tons of cookbooks, ecookbooks and recipes from the web, Mr. Food's are the ones I would go to first and most often. I knew they would be quick, easy and tasty. He will be missed. Shery Sullivan, Joliet, Illinois & Leesburg, Florida

I am so sorry to hear this ... I so enjoyed seeing him several times a week on our local news @ noon absolutely love this recipe site & how he made EVERYTHING look & sound delicious as well as easy to make for dummys like me :) My thots & prayers to family & friends fondly, Vicki Stern Chambersburg Pa

So very sorry to hear this news. He always dished out the best tasting, most practical, real-life recipes garnished with a lovable personality. We will miss you Mr. Food!

I remember watching Mr. Food as I got ready for school. Then I grew up to work at a news station and air his pieces on the show. So sad to hear this news :( My mornings and Mr. Food will never be the same.

He was one of those types of people you thought would live to he was 100. He seemed to have such a passion for life and living it to the fullest. He would always leave the air making sure he put a smile on someones face. He will greatly be missed, but his tradition of sharing good food and recipes will be shared by others who were inspired with his love of the kitchen

Watched you every day. You could relate to everyone. RIP Art. God Bless the family. Oooh it was sooo good to watch your show.

God bless his family! He was a great guy!

my heart goes out to the family of Art Ginsburg aka Mr.Food, he will be sadly miss, i will also miss his signature catch " OOH IT'S SO GOOD!"

My sincere condolences go out to the Ginsburg family. When I moved to upstate NY in 1981 Mr. Food was on the air and was always fun to watch. You could always tell he loved what he was doing and his good humor was contagious. He made you want to cook and try new things. RIP.

Mr. Food inspired me when I discovered him on local TV 20 years ago. I was a young wife struggling to be a good cook & was watching several cooking shows. I have stuck with Mr. Food because his recipes tasted great but were simple with few, but choice ingredients. He will be greatly missed by many, but I will make sure to pass my favorite Mr. Food dishes along to future generations. God is blessed to have such a great chef to help out with the cooking & the "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!"

He was always so upbeat. What an inspiration he was.!! RIP MR. FOOD

I am so sad to hear of the passing of dear Mr. Food, Art Ginsburg. I cannot count the times his lighthearted approach to cooking made me happy, just from watching a few minutes of it at the tail end of a news broadcast or whenever. Since the advent of YouTube, I've relived some Mr. Food moments when trying to decide "what's for dinner." No matter what I ended up cooking, it was always "so good." My deepest condolences to Mrs. Ginsburg and his dear family and friends. I hope we all can learn from his life that food is to be enjoyed, and always good! with love & prayers, Cassie Perry in Georgia, USA

I am so sorry about the passing of Mr. Food. He unknowingly taught me how to cook when I moved away from home. His love of food also inspired me to branch out and start cooking other things as well. Twenty years later my mother is happy to be passing the Thanksgiving tradition over to me. I will miss you Mr. Food.

I am so sorry about the passing of our dear fiend Mr. Food. I will miss him and his wonderful recipes. He taught me how to make great colesalw. I will be lifting his family up in prayer. Chipper Hall

My deepest condolences go out to Mrs. Food and the littler snacks. Mr. Food came across as always jovial, and he provided the audience with yummy recipes, too. We will miss you, Mr. Food.

It is hard to imagine a world without Mr. Food. Ironically I was preparing his no roll crust when KWWL in Waterloo IA announced the worlds loss. God bless you and your loved ones.

The tears in my eyes cannot possibly convey the sadness in my heart! Today, the day before Thanksgiving, I immediately came to Mr. Food's website, as I NEEDED some help with a few recipes. I am shocked with the news of his passing. To his wife & family, my prayers are with you. I know that I speak for many others.................this Thanksgiving WE are ALL very thankful for having had the opportunity to "know" Mr. Food. May God bless him in heaven at the "Heavenly Banquet" of our Lord. I am sure he is grinning from ear to ear as he tells the angels "OH, IT'S SOOOOO GOOD". Rest in peace my friend :)'s to you Mr. were sooo good........

Mr. Food did so much for the children of Western New York throught the annual Variety Kids Telethon on WKBW-TV Channel 7. For 19 striaght years he came to Buffalo to co-host the annual Telethon and gave it his all. He love the kids and they loved him right back. He was a true friend. Everyone that met him loved him and respected him. We will miss his booming voice, his compassion and his love! Our prayers and sympathy go out to his wife Ethel and his children! Mr. Food was an amazing man!! There will not ever be another like him. His tag line said it perfectly....He was....SO GOOD!!! Rest in Peace Mr. Food! Steve Podosek, Variety Kids Telethon Executive Producer

I recently got hooked on Mr. Food and loved the recipes and the way he presented them every day. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Hopefully the show will go on.

I am sending my sincerest condolences to the family of "Mr. Food"...I looked forward to catching his recipes on my local news each day at 12:20 p.m. You will be missed by me and my family...

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Ginsburg Family today for their loss. Mr. Food has been an integral part of my "learning to cook" and his recipes have never dissapointed me. I tuned in daily to my 11:00AM news channel KOLR10 JUST to see what Mr. Food would have cooking that day - I will truly miss his charming personality and no one will ever be able to say "ohh, it's so good" the way Mr. Food did! With sincererest sympathies, Stacey N.

Mr Food we will miss you but we no you are in a better place and God's love and peace with your family

So many of Mr. Ginsburg's recipes have become our family's traditions. My son has asked for his Cheesy Italian Noodles for his birthday for most of his life (he's in his late 20's now.) Our whole family sends our sympathy and thanks to his family; you have had the grace to share him with us for so many years and let him become part of our family, as well. We will be raising a special glass of gratitude to him tomorrow at our Thanksgiving table, where several of his recipes will be shared. We will always remember him with love.

Mr. Food's warmth and voice have been a part of my life since I could talk...will miss seeing him!

My daughter called me a little bit ago and told me about Mr. Food's death. I was soooo glad to be sitting down when she did,,,,,,,,,cause it was quite a shock to me. I watched his show about every day and have tried a lot of his recipes. Ooooohhhhh, he was right when he said "Oooh so good". Anyway we will miss you alot. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family.

My sympathy and deepest regrets go out to his family and friends. Mr. Food has been a part of my life for over 30 years. Everyday I check to see whats cooking. OOH HE WAS SO GOOD!!!!

Mr. Food has given me some of the very best recipes, and I have enjoyed his website and emailed newsletters. Thank you, Mr. Food, for making me a better cook and allowing me to have so many great meals. My condolences to his family and friends.

Thank you for sharing Mr. Food with us at WKBN-TV in Youngstown, Ohio! I'll never forget when he came to town for the American Cancer Society. His energy was catchy. He loved the viewers. He made everyone around him feel special!
