Watch a Google Talk on Staff Meals at Top Restaurants

New, 8 comments

Author Jody Eddy — who co-wrote the 2012 look at restaurant staff meals, Come In, We're Closedstopped by the Googleplex to talk about the often "intense" process of compiling, organizing, and photographing the book. Among the details gleaned: Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc serves a "blowout" staff meal where dogs are invited; Montreal's Au Pied de Cochon serves a 2a.m. staff meal; and the first staff meal Masaharu Morimoto ever served at his restaurant was a maki roll literally the length of the restaurant. Also: Eddy's collection of sketchbooks and journals depicting what staff meals "mean to the chefs" might become its own book.
