James GrodyThe Tailored Chef
After 25 years in the business, I like the comraderie of the kitchen table---the intimacy, the connection. Granted you've got to be super organized to orchestrate a party of 2000, but there's something more special about working in someone's kitchen and sharing stories. My cooking style is all about connection: connection sparks memory; flavors enhance memory and that's what I bring to the table. It's a story told through food.
My three favorite ingredients
Maitake mushrooms, Asparagus, and Kaffir Lime Leaf
