When: Thu., Sept. 5, 7 p.m.
Feeling stuck in his work and home life, NYT contributor and Esquire Food & Drinks Editor, Jeff Gordinier had a fateful meeting with Danish chef René Redzepi of Noma. A restless perfectionist, Redzepi was at the top of his game but was looking to shutter his two-Michelin-star restaurant and set out for new places, flavors, and recipes. Over the span of four years Gordinier joins Redzepi as his culinary Sancho Panza. Hungry is a memoir, a travelogue, a portrait of a chef, and a chronicle of the moment when daredevil cooking became the most exciting and groundbreaking form of artistry.
