flc.jpgGrant Achatz tells Food & Wine about plating food for Thomas Keller's The French Laundry Cookbook: "My friend Mark Hopper and I plated, I would say, 80 percent of the dishes for the photographs for that book when we were cooks at the restaurant together. We were working in Thomas Keller's home kitchen, and the dishes were all photographed in his living room...We knew nothing about what the book would ultimately be, we only knew we were trying to plate French Laundry food as beautifully as we could, because we knew it would be preserved in time."
