Alex Atala Wire

Alex-Atala-150.jpgHere's a profile of Brazilian "Jungle Cook" Alex Atala of D.O.M. from food writer Lisa Abend. The two go to the rain forest together and, among other things, Atala discusses beheading a chicken at MAD after asking the audience to vote on its fate: "I wanted everyone to feel a stake in the bird's death, which is why I asked the audience to vote. But I was a bit troubled by how insistent they were." Is rain forest exploring with Alex Atala the new foraging with René Redzepi? [Time]
