We woke up this morning to the sad news of the passing of our friend Chef Noble Masi. Noble who was our founding chef and is a continuing inspiration to us passed away yesterday with his family at his side. Our hearts are with his wife Robin, children John and Andrea and the entire Masi family.
Noble was with the Point from its start and served as Chef for 26 years, establishing the highest standard of excellence. We have treasured great times with Noble and Robin, and the kindness and generosity of spirit you both bring to the Point. From teaching his staff in the kitchen elegant grand hotel-style service, and creating Point O’Ritz in the process, to inspiring us to ever greater heights we thank you and celebrate you, Noble.
In addition to Noble’s legacy at the Point, many of you know that he mentored generations of chefs, both while teaching baking at the Culinary Institute of America and even after his “retirement”. He served as an ambassador for the CIA and encouraged aspiring chefs to pursue their dreams. In his years at Point O’Pines, many CIA students and chefs also spent summers learning from Noble working with him in the kitchen at the Point.
Last summer we were honored to have you attend Point O’Ritz as our guest, so you can see the continuing traditions of the Point.
Your legacy is forever in our hearts.
