UPDATED: Georges Perrier Divorcing

The chef and his much-younger wife are splitting

Le Bec-Fin chef Georges Perrier and his wife, Andrea Rosenstiehl Perrier, are headed to divorce court. (Here they are photographed together in 2010.) The chef, who is in his late sixties, and Mrs. Perrier, 42, married in Napa Valley in 2006 after dating for a few years. (Anyone care to place a wager whether the reception was held at Thomas Keller’s French Laundry?) Back in July, the couple put their 5BR/5BA Chestnut Hill home on the market for $2.7 million. (Check out photos of the wine cellar here.) Perrier was divorced from his first wife in 1982 after 11 years of marriage. This was Mrs. Perrier’s first marriage. Chef Perrier did not return a call seeking comment. Mrs. Perrier, who is a partner in Pure Gourmet Foods, confirms the split but offers no further comment. “I like to keep my personal life personal,” she says.

UPDATE: The day after this article was posted, Chef Perrier decided to speak on-the-record. Read that interview here.
