Big Mac Creator Died in December: Michael "Jim" Delligatti-- Part 1

From the December 1, 2016, Northwest Herald (Illinois) "McDonald's Big Mac creator dies" by Joe Mandax, AP.

"You probably don't know his name, but you've almost certainly devoured his creation: two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun.

"Michael James "Jim" Delligatti, the McDonald's franchisee, who created the Big Mac nearly 50 years ago and saw it become perhaps the best-known fast-food sandwich in the world, died Monday (Nov. 28) at his home in Pittsburgh.  Delligatti, who his son said ate at least one 540-calorie Big Mac a week for decades, was 98."

Good Eating.  --CootMac
