Charlie Trotter Net Worth: Charlie Trotter was an American chef and restaurateur who had a net worth of $2 million. Born Charles Trotter (September 8, 1959 - November 5, 2013) in Chicago, Illinois, he had made a name for himself as one of the most chefs in the world, as well as he got regarded to be an acclaimed leader in molecular gastronomy. Even though he earned a degree in political science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1982, he would embark on a diametrically opposite career as a professional cook. In 1990, he became the host of the PBS cooking show The Kitchen Sessions With Charlie Trotter, where he presented his recipes and cooking techniques in detail. Throughout his career he wrote fourteen cookbooks and three management books, and also promoted a line of organic and all-natural gourmet foods distributed nationally. Trotter was owner of Charlie Trotter's restaurant and Trotter's To Go catering store in Chicago, which were closed in 2012. As a reason behind the closures he cited that he had a desire to travel and to pursue a master's degree. The world lost this incredible cook on November 5, 2013, when he was found unconscious in his home and shortly after was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Married three times, Charlie Trotter had only one son named Dylan from his second marriage.
Charles "Charlie" Trotter (September 8, 1959 ??? November 5, 2013) was an American chef and restaurateur.


A graduate of New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois, Trotter started cooking professionally in 1982 after earning a degree in political science from the University of Wisconsin???Madison.
For five years after college, he worked and studied in Chicago, San Francisco (at the California Culinary Academy), Florida and Europe.
Trotter was the host of the 1999 PBS cooking show The Kitchen Sessions with Charlie Trotter, in which he details his recipes and cooking techniques. He likened cooking to an improvisational jazz session in that as two riffs will never be the same, so too with food. He also wrote 14 cookbooks and three management books, and promoted a line of organic and all-natural gourmet foods distributed nationally.
Trotter was involved with his philanthropic Charlie Trotter Culinary Education Foundation and other causes. He was awarded the Humanitarian of the Year award in 2005 by the International Association of Culinary Professionals. He invited groups of public high school students into his restaurant as part of his Excellence Program two to three times per week: after eating a meal, the students were told how the food was prepared and the motivations of those preparing it.
Trotter also was unusual among celebrity chefs for his outspokenness in matters of ethics, most famously when he took foie gras off the menu in 2002 for ethical reasons. However, Trotter refused to be associated with the animal rights group Farm Sanctuary stating, "These people are idiots. Understand my position: I have nothing to do with a group like that. I think they're pathetic. ??? [S]ome of their tactics are crude and uncivilized even."
Charlie Trotter made a cameo appearance in the 1997 film My Best Friend's Wedding, screaming at an assistant, "I will kill your whole family if you don't get this right! I need this perfect!" a parody of a stereoty
