Food can be Art.



Friends of ours had us over for dinner last night in honour of our engagement. They are such wonderful friends. They made pad thai, the best pad thai I have ever had. Andrea is quite a chef and she told us all about Chef Grant Achatz. He is seriously amazing. He has opened a restaurant in Chicago, named Alinea. Apparently it's a 4 hour rollercoaster ride in your mouth! A 28 course meal! Check out the links below. The first site is one persons review including photos of the meals which I would call art. The second site is an interview with Chef Grant Achatz himself and you can see some footage of the chefs making the beautiful and delicious artwork. Food is amazing!
