Words can not express how saddened we are. I'll miss Big Tone for a million reasons, the biggest being he was a fantastic friend that Scott and I grew to know and love.
Over the last 6 years we were honoured to have spent a lot of time with Tony, his soul mate Fahro, and Tonys son Harry. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
Rest in peace Big Tone - I'll miss you.

Deepest sympathy to Fahro.

I hope there is a freezer full of Otto gelato, wherever he is.

This is very sad news. I only met Tony once, but enjoyed his company enormously. My deepest condolences to Fahro, Harry and the family.
When working with high heat, the first contact between the cooking surface and the food must be respected.
