Have you seen the newest Food & Wine magazine?
It’s a good one, made even better if you have a Sharpie marker and a couple of giggly girlfriends around.
It’s all about the best new chefs of 2009. It’s about dudes (plus one ladydude) that are young, hip and magic in the kitchen… like Vinny Dotolo (bottom left with glasses) and Jon Shook (bottom middle with a heart drawn on his shirt) of a restaurant called Animal in Los Angeles.
Animal is the kind of place that turns lamb tongue into something I might actually consider eating… and enjoying. They also work wonders with chicken liver and rabbit loin. On the real.
My only concern is… well… only one awesome lady chef this year Food & Wine? Really?
I suggest you get this months issue. Also get a marker… maybe a glass of wine too. It’s Friday, do it up right.
Just came back from a trip to LA and did some serious meat-time at Animal. I swear every member of staff there is painfully hot, and – Pro-Tip: that little window separating the bar from the kitchen functions as a very convenient peep-show situation if you choose to sit at the bar for dinner. (Not that I would ever objectify hot-boys in such a manner…)
That one in the middle on the bottom row looks like the drummer from Spoon.
UM, delicious…the men, I mean. All their wonderful tattoos and culinary wit. I may just swoon all evening.
that is the best photo i’ve seen in a while. love it!
I recommend Vinni & Jon’s book “Two Dudes, One Pan”– its full of recipes that are interesting/unique/yummy but not too complicated to fix on an ordinary tuesday night!
def. picking this up…maybe some wine…already have a gangload of sharpies. thanks joy, you are awesome!
I’m hoping this will be in my mailbox tonight
Gotta love being a foodie on a Friday! And I thought I just had a nice dinner to look forward to tonight…can’t wait to read this!
I’m loving your doodles! :)
