Collomb tweeted Saturday that “Mister Paul was France. Simplicity and generosity. Excellence and art de vivre.”

Bocuse held a three-star Michelin rating since 1965 on his restaurant outside the eastern French city of Lyon. He also parlayed his business and cooking skills into a globe-spanning gastronomic empire.
