Two overweight french cooks. Interesting. Maybe they're relatives somehow?

Reply to Two overweight french cooks. Interesting, Maybe they're relatives somehow?

Dom DeLuise was an American- Italian Comedian/Actor (who happened to love cooking) and Paul Prudhomme is Cajun French. There is a big difference between the French and the Cajun French, believe me! But yes, Dom was overweight and so is Chef Paul.

I just recently read an interview with Chef Paul, and he was asked "Has anyone ever told you that you look just like Dom DeLuise?"

Chef Paul responded:

"Yeah, I've heard that about the last 20 years of my life. Dom's been at the restaurant [K-Paul's] and he's also been out and acknowledged himself as Chef Paul and told people to come on back to K-Paul's for a free dinner. I was sitting in the restaurant one time and he came through the back with a knife and fork in his hand telling everyone that he was the real Chef Paul and I was a fake. It was funny."
