A Le Fooding Face Off
Last year, the ingenious French Le Fooding team brought some of Paris’s grooviest chefs—like Inaki Aizpitarte from Le Chateaubriand—into town to cook alongside New Yorkers like Daniel Boulud and David Chang.
This year, the theme is New York vs. San Francisco, inspired by Chang’s now-infamous put-down of the Bay Area: “Every restaurant in San Francisco is just figs on a plate with nothing on it.” The five participating SF chefs have retorts for Chang. And the four NYC chefs joining Chang have retorts back. Among the smack-talking highlights:
James Syhabout (Commis, SF): “To keep it simple, best rhymes with West.”
Rich Torrisi and Mario Carbone (Torrisi, NY): “When Sinatra said ‘If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere,’ he wasn’t talking about San Fran!”
Daniel Patterson (Coi, SF): “David who?”
Dan Barber (Blue Hill, NY): “Looking forward to learning how to wrap a great burrito.”
Meanwhile, Eater has details on Le Fooding’s excellent action-style movie posters, and the Village Voice has all details on the menu.
