It is interesting how I can cry over a video of someone I never met. Art introduced me to recipes on the internet and created my favorite food site. I am so proud that his legacy continues on. His gift to us has become our gift to others. Bless you Art. May you find peace in your spirit. You are still "Oh so good!"

I retired a year ago and watched all his segments during our noon news. For some reason, they no longer air Mr. Food and don't know why? This legacy was long overdue but done very nice. I have made so many of the recipes! And my family enjoys them! Thank you.

I'm originally from Chicago and would love to hear him on the news with his food segment. Learned many recipes from him and would love to hear him "Ohhhhh, it's so good"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Still love to see all the recipes from his emails and still learning new recipes and "tweeking" some to fit our tastes. He was a wonderful and generous person. He is truly missed by all.

Thank you for allowing others to express our appreciation for Mr. Food. Art. A most suitable name for one who discovered, mastered, and shared the better things in life such as cooking, theater, quality family and career life --- no respecter of persons but so obviously enjoying each precious moment he breathed that his personality was contagious and everyone looked forward to his presence. My entire family knows Mr. Food as a dear friend. I have a special file on my cook book shelves for his recipes that continues to grow thanks to his staff. His spirit lives on. __BOC

I still miss "Mr. Food", too, on TV and listening to him describe his recipes and how to make them. He was very inspiring and I have taken on and used a lot of his ideas and shortcuts in cooking. He was the greatest and I still enjoy the Test Kitchen and love getting my email letters from you guys! Great job all around! And may Art R.I.P.

I had not known of Mr. Food's passing so read this with interst and pinned i on a board. The only thing I might say is that you might attach the picture of him, instead of the blue block. Food boards also are so visual that using the blue square logo is not enticing.Jay

What a great guy 'Mr. Food' (Art) was! Brought a smile to a lot of faces and was a great encouragement for me in the kitchen. He made everything easier and brought back my love for cooking and baking again. When I view some of the cooking videos on this site and he shows up on a lot of them, ........ its great to still hear and watch him, and last but not least to hear; "OOH, IT'S SO GOOD!!" Thanks for sharing this 'video' of "ART"!!! Sincerely, Sherry 'little ole' Ohio cook'

I miss Mr. Food on my daily news channel. No matter what I was doing, I would always make sure I saw his time on the air. I loved listening to him with all his exciting recipes and shortcuts to making his recipes. I even started my own recipe books with all his recipes, one for main foods and one for desserts. And guess what I named them - ooh, it's so good!

I remember how sad I was when Art passed away last year so close to the holiday season which was a favorite time of his. I remember watching him on TV with his wonderful recipes on WRGB, Channel 6 in Schenectady NY, where he got his start in "show biz"! I continued to watch over the years; his syndicated shows continue to appear daily on Channel 6. I love his recipes, have an autographed cookbook from him, and also an autographed one from Howard. I will always love Mr. Food; miss him, and think of him every time I try another one of his delicious, simple, and creative recipes! RIP Art; God Speed, and many thanks to Howard for carrying on the tradition of, "OOH It's So Good" !!

When I was working for a tv station several years ago, I was the one who sent out all the requests for Mr. Food recipe requests. People loved being able to get his recipes to add to thier own files. It became a lot of work. He once sent me a cook book he signed and a picture for all my work. I enjoyed sharing the recipes and making my own file. He is really missed with his lust for life and making people healthy and food fun.Patricia McCue Tynan. 2013

Art Ginsburg was a friend and mentor. My testimony is on the back cover of his 2nd diabetic cookbook.By using his cookbooks faithfully and following my healthcare professionals, my 12 years as a diabetic have been full of successes. My blood sugar in 2001 was 612, now my 1ac runs 6.0 to 6.4.Thank you Mr Food, you are loved and missed.

I have every cookbook Mr. Food has ever put out because each recipe is made with love by him. I never missed an appearance on my local channel WHEC 13 in Rochester NY for a new recipe or a show on QVC. I sure do miss him because "OOH HE IS SO GOOD". He is a part of my mealtime ritual and always will be. Thanks you Art and family.

I wasn't aware of Mr. Food (Art) passing either - the recipes that I enjoy receiving every day kinda' make you smack your lips as I read - and they are "down home" comfort food that's easy. I've saved so many of the recipes on my computer that I'm getting warnings about running out of room and that's not counting the paper and ink I've used up printing favorites. Thank you Mr. Food and to the Mr. Food Team - y'all do a super job and it is appreciated that you carry on his ideals. I'm 81 and live behind family but do a lot of cooking for the four of us....thanks for keeping all the recipes so simple.

He is the best when compared to all the Food Network Hosts. His books and recipes are easy to read and follow and always come out great even when I am improvising as he always said I could. He made me a better cook and also made me a better parent and wife. Thank you Mr. Food for all you have done and your company continues to do. Thank you for making this video. It was very sweet and kind and he would have loved it very much.

It was great to see that the personality that came through in his short segment on our TV station was REAL! From the comments of all those who worked with him, we could see that he was who he seemed to be, and we only wish we would have "known" him longer than we did. He was the main reason we turned on the TV at Noon!

When I first saw Mr. Food I thought the segment was annoying. Guess what - I found myself looking forward to Art on the noon news and have been an email subscriber for years now. I have also forwarded emails to my entire address book and most of them now suscribe too!! What a dear man he was - wish I could have met him. Reading his employees comments makes me wish I could have worked for him even more!!! Thanks so much!!!

What a lovely tribute. It made me cry. He was truly a wonderful man and I can't believe it has been a year already since he passed. Whenever I make food for family or friends that I receive the most compliments on, more often than not, it is a Mr. Food recipe. So thank you for that. Howard, although I miss seeing Mr. Food so much, I have come to look foward to your segments each day. You are doing a fabulous job in his place. I'm sure Art is very proud of you.

My mom used to call me every day and ask, "Did you see that recipe Mr Food made today? I want that recipe!" I went online and would print off that recipe and when I printed up our family recipe book for her for Christmas, her cook book had a special section, My Favorite Mr Food Recipes. She loved it. Keep in mind, she had had a stroke and lost the use of her right arm and hand and could no longer cook but it meant the world to her. And when he passed she cried like he was one of the family. We all love Mr Food. And thank you Howard for keeping his memory and the recipes alive!

So what can you say about someone who loved food so much, that he brought that love to the masses! His passion, and dedication to the art has been missed. As a singer myself I know what it's like to burst out singing while your creating something so delicious as one of his recipes. You are missed my friend, but your legacy goes on!

I have used so many of Mr. Food's mouth watering dishes that is so hard to not be able to see him doing his thing in the kitchen. I will always remember him saying, "OOH ITS SOOO GOOD" as I make another one of his dishes. He is surely missed.

Mr. Food, Art, made me feel as if we knew each other for years. I was truly crushed when I heard of him passing. Howard, you're doing a wonderful job and I've always enjoyed you as well, but his shoes were too big for you or anyone else to fill. My heart goes out to you and the staff. I can't imagine the loss you all feel. God bless and RIP Art. You're always in my heart. Beautiful and loving tribute btw.Reg Strong of MA
