Mr. Food Passes Away


Art Ginsberg, better known as Mr. Food, has died.

Mr. Food whipped up simple and easy-to-make recipes to TV viewers for decades with his syndicated Mr. Food segments and his catchphrase, "Ooh! It's so good!"

Ginsberg died at his home in Weston, Florida Wednesday. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer more than a year ago. The cancer went into remission after treatments, but returned earlier this month.

His 90 second cooking segments were syndicated to 125  television stations around the country, including KWQC-TV6.

Ginsberg was 81-years-old.
