Cesar Miranda was born April 24, 1951 in Montevideo, Uruguay to Elbio Humberto Miranda and Diazul Renee Miranda Brocco. After living in Toronto, Canada; Los Angeles, CA; New York, NY and West Palm Beach, FL he settled in the Dallas, TX area.

Cesar loved to cook and started his career in the hospitality industry. He met D' while working in the Lincoln Radisson Hotel where he was hired to teach the staff to cook French cuisine tableside. Cesar swept D' off of her feet and were married in June of 1984. Cesar and D' started a marketing company, Forman Group, in January of 1984, where they worked together until the business was sold in 2013.

Cesar could charm almost anyone and loved to entertain clients, friends and family cooking everything from chateaubriand to chili in his home. He made it his mission that everyone was comfortable and had everything they could think of from wine, food and cigars to fun.

He loved to travel and made trips with D' to Argentina, France, Toronto, Montreal and just recently returned from Prague, Czech Republic, as well as, all over the United States.

People didn't know that Cesar loved philosophy, history in general, but Civil War history in particular, mathematics, antique cookbooks, art and museums. Recently, I had to chuckle. Our reading books were next to each other on the table - he was reading Dante's Inferno and I was reading Charles Schultz's Peanuts Volume 2. That was very typical.

Cesar was fluent in five languages: Spanish, his native language; French, Portuguese, Italian and English. Give him a few minutes and he'd have the basics of any language he chose to learn mastered.

Cesar was a generous man with a big heart, loved his family with devotion and was loved deeply in return.
