After obsessively watching Chef's Table, I became enamored by how some chefs are truly artists within their field. After watching an episode about Chicago's Grant Achatz, I went online and discovered he was going to be in Minneapolis this April! More importantly, I could actually afford to eat his food for once.
Normally tickets to his restaurant, Alinea, are $500 or more and tickets to his dinner at Spoon and Stable are already sold out. But when he visits this spring, there will be items on the bar menu at normal, everyday, peasant prices. I'm literally driving up to Minneapolis to order everything he has to offer.
Throughout 2017, they will be hosting three other chefs from around the country. It's such a great opportunity to sample these chef's works! I'm particularly excited for Dominique Crenn in December because I've watched her Chef's Table profile twenty times. There's just something about the way she speaks that really captures my attention. Also, I love that her menu is a poem. How magical!
You can check out the whole lineup here. I'm kind of excited to visit Minneapolis because I haven't been since I was, like, nine, and blogger friends keep writing about how cool it is. Will inform you of anything that I find!
