Citing a desire to travel in his retirement, Maeder bid adieu via press release, saying, "I’ve been in the restaurant business for more than 40 years,” he says. “I’m ready to do something different. My dream is to travel a lot while continuing to explore other options that combine culinary talent with travel and exploration."
