An Irrational Meal

Posted in Personal tagged , , at 1:27 pm by Andrew

What would you do if you were asked to serve a predictably irrational meal?

For me, what comes to mind immediately are things like Michel Richard’s “breakfast for dessert” at Citronelle (which I have had, and is incredibly yummy) or Homaru Cantu’s impromptu “road kill” entree — which, sadly, I have not tasted (but would in a heartbeat). In general, I’m a big fan of the molecular gastronomy school of “hey-this-looks-like-something-but-tastes-like-something-else” to begin with, and in particular chefs who haven’t forgotten how much fun it is to play with your food.

And with respect to Predictable Irrationality: hey, what’s more irrational than cognitive dissonance??
