Edwin A. Kuser, a retired Swiss chef who headed hotel and hospital kitchens, died of heart failure Thursday at his Arbutus home. He was 94.
Services for Mr. Kuser were being held today at Ambrose Inc., 1328 Sulphur Spring Road in Arbutus.
Mr. Kuser trained as a chef in his native Switzerland under a rigorous apprenticeship system, which required that he pay for the privilege of learning.
He came to Baltimore in 1925.
At various times, he had served as executive chef at the Lord Baltimore Hotel, the Baltimore Country Club and Johns Hopkins and Sinai hospitals.
