As promised, the saga continues…
A week ago, I was en route to NYC and my schedule was kinda crazy.
Ten months ago I was packing my bags with knives, chocolates and ambitions, eager to embark on the journey of a lifetime in northern Spain. Not knowing what to expect, I hoped for the best and prepared for the worst.
I’d done my homework weeks in advance and read about the G9 meeting in Peru earlier this month, where the International Advisory Board comprised of prominent chefs such as René Redzepi (Denmark), Ferran Adrià (Spain), Dan Barber (USA), Massimo Bottura (Italy), Alex Atala (Brasil), etc. got together to discuss plans for the Basque Culinary Center, lauded as the ‘Harvard of Gastronomy‘ according to our trusty newspaper in Basque country, El Diario Vasco.
Please excuse the irregular blogging schedule. I have been patiently awaiting my Spanish visa in order to return to Basque country. Alas it has arrived and I can confidently say, “I’ll be back” in my best Schwarzenegger impression.
It all began with a simple pork chop…
[surprisingly the best ever. And in Shanghai? Como?]
