RIP The Inventor of Chicken Nuggets

Area inventor of chicken nuggets, turkey ham dies

 

 

(March 15, 2006) — Robert C. Baker, a longtime faculty member at Cornell University who changed American cuisine with his poultry innovations, died Monday. He was 84.

 

"He really — in more ways than most ever will — changed things," his son Dale Baker told The Ithaca Journal yesterday. "He changed the way we eat."

 

Baker created dozens of products including ground poultry, chicken nuggets, turkey ham and poultry hot dogs. A professor of food science and poultry science in Ithaca, Tompkins County, raised in Newark, Wayne County, Baker worked on his father's fruit farm in nearby Sodus.

 

"When the nuggets came out in the 1950s, they weren't too popular," Baker told the newspaper in 2004. But his innovations quickly caught on, particularly his chicken barbecue recipe that was a Cornell icon. Baker always had a stand at the New York State Fair, and the university said President Clinton and his family asked for his chicken barbecue during their visit in 1999.

 

He earned a bachelor's degree from Cornell's College of Agriculture in 1943, then joined the faculty in 1949. Baker obtained a master's degree from Penn State University and a doctorate from Purdue University.

 

Baker founded Cornell's Institute of Food Science and Marketing in 1970. He retired in 1989. A member of the American Poultry Hall of Fame, he owned an orchard near Ithaca with his wife Jacoba. Other survivors include his two sons and four daughters
