Le Grand Fooding NY 2011 has a whole new format. Instead of PS1 like the previous 2 years, this time, it’s in the city. And it’s not going to be taste stations for each chef. Instead, they’re pulling off a 52 hour dinner around the clock. $100 gets you a sit down dinner prepared by one chef at a certain time (some are crazy, like 1am-4am), plus booze. (The chefs and menu for Sept 23-25)
The website says tickets are on sale Sept 1st, BUT you can GET YOUR TICKETS HERE
Hurry! ‘cuz tix sell out fast!
A TASTE-TROSPECT OF 2010 LE GRAND FOODING
As you may remember, I wrote a looong post about it, but blogger.com went down and I lost all the content! So here’s my attempt to relive that fun and yummy night. The theme was NY vs SF.
Met David Chang early in the evening, that was cool, though I have this love/hate relationship with his “peach empire”. We had VIP tix (paid double), so there weren’t many ppl during that time frame.
His beets, goat cheese, walnuts was really bla. So that was disappointing. At the end of the night, word got around and his station wasn’t getting many visitors.
Though Jake Gyllenhaal stopped by. I’m a huge fan, but he was being a jerk that night. He was wearing mountain man outfit and wouldn’t talk to anyone.
I didn’t even go up to bother him, I took a pic from far away and that blond chick yelled at me! telling me not to! wat? this is public space! wow, I can’t believe I’m still upset about it! LOL
