Watch Grant Achatz Discuss the Avant Garde at Alinea

New, 5 comments

Below, a video from The Avant/Garde Diaries about Alinea in Chicago. The first half focuses on chef Grant Achatz, and he discusses creativity and how manipulation isn't a dirty word and what goes into making food that literally floats. Then, Achatz's designer Martin Kastner talks about the custom tableware he creates for the restaurant: "It's a stage for the food, it's also a landing pad. It's a place of exchange, interaction."
