Many here may remember Daniel Rogov. He posted his own obituary here http://www.winelover...p?f=29&t=40993.

Another very nice article can be found here http://www.winemag.c...iel-Rogov-Dies/

Thanks to him, the words "moral hedonism" will always be with me.

This saddens me deeply. I type this with tears streaming down my face. Daniel was always so kind and generous with his knowledge. I had contacted him on several occasions with questions for articles I was working on at the time. He always answered promptly, graciously and with his signature wit and encyclopedic knowledge on whatever the subject at hand might have been. He was kind enough to contribute a recipe or two as well. I am so sorry never to have met him personally, as I felt I knew him through our correspondence. The world is a sadder place without him. Of this I am certain.

My deepest condolences to his family and friends. I know he'll be missed. He already is in my world. :sad:

Godspeed and rest in Peace, Daniel. Know that you left this world a better place through your presence in it. Something we should all aspire to do with the same style and grace that he did.

Rogov was an outstanding member, a worthy debate combatant, and encyclopedic in his knowledge. He lived a good, smart life, and will be missed.

Daniel Rogov was the only person (to this day) whose posts I read on eGullet no matter the topic. His breadth of knowledge was matched by a graciousness and civility that I can only aspire to. It was a pleasure to have crossed his path.

By an odd coincidence, I was in the middle of re-reading Rogues, Writers and Whores when I read this sad news last week. Daniel was a wonderful, generous and passionate person - eager to share his wide knowledge and expertise in matters of food and wine. What a loss.
