(UPI) -- World-renowned chef Charlie Trotter was found dead in his Chicago home Tuesday morning at the age of 54.

Trotter emerged onto the Chicago restaurant scene in 1987, when his self-titled restaurant became opened to great acclaim -- both in his hometown and around the world. In 1999, he won the James Beard Foundation's prestigious Outstanding Chef Award. He eventually collected 10 Beard Awards and became renowned for his exciting and experimental approach to cuisine.

Here's how Trotter's fellow foodies paid tribute to his memory Tuesday:
