Ron Kule, author of Chef Tell: The Biography of America’s Pioneer TV Showman Chef



On Tuesday, January 14, 7:30pm (snow date: Jan.15), author Ron Kule will visit Radnor Library to talk about his new book on Chef Tell. Radnor Historical Society is partnering with the Library for this first author event of 2014.

Born Friedman Paul Erhardt, Chef Tell trained in several hotels and restaurants in Europe before moving to the United States when he was 28. One of the original celebrity chefs, Chef Tell won two Emmy Awards as well as the hearts of TV viewers, for his cooking segments that aired from 1976 to 1986.


A resident of Florida, Ron Kule visited Radnor Library back when he was doing research in the Philadelphia area in preparation for writing his book. We enjoyed chatting with Ron at the Information Desk and answered his questions about the Strafford Inn, one of the many restaurants where Chef Tell cooked up a storm for the locals. Chef Tell became acquainted with President Richard Nixon who frequently dined at the Inn.

You’ll have to come to the author event and “tell” your own story about Chef Tell…

See you at the Library,
