Mentor & Protege

2008_12_achatzkeller.jpgIn a Q&A session, Grant Achatz discusses, among other topics, how his style differs from that of his teacher, Thomas Keller: "A lot of times in protégé relationships there is some mimicking, but side-by-side it was so different. Off the cuff, there are so many more ingredients and texture manipulation on our plate than his. The priority of his cooking is perfection and simplicity, and the priority of my cooking is more innovation. We both want it to taste good, but we get to it in different ways." [WSJ]
