Chef Joel Robuchon, who at one point had earned more than 30 Michelin stars across nearly two dozen restaurants on three continents, died Monday at his home in Geneva aged 73, his staff said.His career was one of superlatives: named among the best craftsmen in France in 1976, crowned "chef of the century" in 1990, chosen to be one of the cooks at the "dinner of the century," and, for years, holder of the most Michelin stars in the world.In France, Robuchon is regarded as a chef who ushered in an era of authenticity after the restraint of nouvelle cuisine.Born in Poitiers, western France, in 1945, Robuchon rose quickly through apprenticeships, learning techniques from around the country, before taking over as head chef of what was then the Hotel Concorde La Fayette in Paris at the age of 29 .Many of France's greatest chefs echoed those sentiments.
