CHICAGO (AP) — A who's who of the culinary world is among hundreds of people gathered at a Chicago church for a memorial to celebrity chef Charlie Trotter.

Among those who've arrived at Fourth Presbyterian Church Monday are chefs Graham Elliott and Norman Van Aken. Some people are wearing white chef's coats.

Trotter died last week at a Chicago hospital after paramedics found him unresponsive at his home. He was 54 years old.
