globeandmail.com: James Barber, 84

James Barber, the charming host of television cooking shows and the author of several best-selling cookbooks, has died at his farm on Vancouver Island.

Mr. Barber, 84, died at his home on Thursday of natural causes. He was found at the dining room table, where he had been reading a cookbook.

A pot of chicken soup was simmering on the stove.

As a self-proclaimed "urban peasant," Mr. Barber championed rustic dishes made with ingredients at hand. A show of the same name aired on CBC television for 10 years and later appeared in syndication on Food Network Canada. The Urban Peasant became a staple in more than 80 countries.
