When Grant Achatz and Alex Stupak—two of the country’s most brilliant chefs—team up to make Thanksgiving dinner, what direction do they go? Traditional, like the ones Achatz grew up with in Michigan? (His grandmother actually made a green Jell-O mold for the holiday.) Or the opposite, doing things that no one would expect?
Guess which way they’d go.
F&W got to preview the incredible dinner that Achatz and Stupak (his former pastry chef at Alinea) will prepare tonight at Stupak’s Manhattan restaurant Empellón Cocina. It’s the fourth installment of Stupak’s Push Project dinner series.
