Georges Perrier promises he's 'not a bum, yet,' after estate sale

"You can tell everybody I'm not a bum, yet. I'm fine. Don't worry," assured chef Georges Perrier Monday night when we asked about his estate sale last weekend at his Chestnut Hill mansion. The famed Frenchman unloaded huge copper pots and other cookware from Le Bec-Fin, which he sold in March.

"You can tell everybody I'm not a bum, yet. I'm fine. Don't worry," assured chef Georges Perrier Monday night when we asked about his estate sale last weekend at his Chestnut Hill mansion.

The famed Frenchman said he sold lots of huge copper pots and other cookware from Le Bec-Fin (1523 Walnut) which he sold to Nicolas Fanucci in March.

We're told two women speaking French to each other and accompanied by a small poodle named Isabel ran the sale, while Perrier was present too at his home, which Curbed reports had long been listed for sale but was taken off the market in October. It's last asking price was $2.5 million.

Perrier, who still owns Georges' (503 E. Lancaster) in Wayne and The Art of Bread in Narberth (920 Montgomery) but says he has been trying to relax for the first time in 42 years since opening Le Bec-Fin.

He plans to do some traveling, but for now has just been "resting."
