For this new episode of @davechangshow I talked to the podfather @sptguy33 about the food trends of 2018. I didn’t expect to discuss economics so much but it’s a major factor in our industry and will continue to be so. We also got to talk about our favorite meals of the year. @faviken @spoonbyh @unapizzanapoletana and @rodneyscottsbbq were some of the best for me. Listen at the link in my bio. @ringer @majordomomedia
I sort of flew all the way here for this...when I first lived in Japan in 1999. This was my breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s the best ¥200 you can buy. One of the few times nostalgia isn’t wrong #uglydelicious
I think @kyliejavierashton & @_paulcarmichael have turned @momofukuseiobo into one of the great 🌎 dining experiences. Certainly worth a serious detour. It’s evolved into something so insanely fun and delicious. Sorry 🇺🇸 you had your chance with Paul... #reggaetondancehall#caribbean#uglydelicious 🇧🇧 🇦🇺
@chefjeremyfox is a close friend and one of America’s best chefs. He makes the best tasting vegetables on the planet. But his success came at a huge personal cost. On this episode of @davechangshow I talked with Jeremy about mental health and how hard it is for chefs to find balance. We’re both still trying to process and articulate some of the stuff we’ve been through but I hope others can benefit from hearing what Jeremy has to say. Enjoy this first picture of us from 2009 and listen to the ep at the link in my bio. Apologies for talking too much!

떡갈비 (dduk galbi) - An old recipe of minced 🐄 short rib patties originally made for 🇰🇷 👑 @spoonbyh makes an outstanding version of 떡갈비 (one more reason, it’s my restaurant of the year! Hard to find places that make it all). I’ve had it before at places that serve it like a kebab on a beef rib bone instead of a skewer. Perfect plating

Giving thanks. It’s impossible for me to stand at the pass without feeling grateful for the bounty in my life and for all the opportunities I’ve been afforded. I am grateful for my many friends and mentors, and for our wonderful staff, many of whom are working today. You embrace our culture, philosophies and standards beyond my wildest dreams. . I am grateful for the guests who have supported throughout the years, and who continue to do so today. I am grateful for my brother, Joseph Keller, and Chef Roland Henin, who taught me so much in the kitchen. For my father who taught me many life lessons. For my mother, Betty, who worked a full-time job while raising five children on her own, and whose meals live on among my fondest culinary memories. I feel grateful for Laura Cunningham who has been such an enormous part of my life and my success. . At this time of giving thanks, I am especially grateful to our team members who are spending the day volunteering, giving back to our veterans and to survivors of the Camp and Woolsey fires. Thank you. You embody how our restaurants can nourish our communities. . Wherever you are this Thanksgiving, and however you choose to celebrate, may your day be filled with warmth, great friends and good food.
Happiness bean-to-bar. There are so many different ways I enjoy chocolate and I hope our chocolate does the same for you. We partnered with @chefsfeed to share with you the story of @kellermannichocolate – an innovative approach to making chocolate that’s hand-crafted in the Napa Valley by chocolatier Chi Bui. I think you’ll find it complex, velvety and delicious. When you purchase one of our bars before the end of the year, you’ll be entered to win a trip to the Napa Valley, dinner for 2 @_TFL_ and a tour of our factory. Good luck to all you chocolate devotees! (Link in bio). #kplusm#beantobarchocolate#napavalleychocolate#goodforthebodygoodforthesoul
Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, Anton Denisenko began his hospitality career at French fine dining restaurants Garçon and Lumiere before moving to Paris to join the team at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Saint Germain in Paris in 2011. Two years ago, he moved to California to realize his dream of working in a new dimension of hospitality. As he says, “@_TFL_ was the only choice, nothing else would do.” Anton is a welcome addition to our multinational team representing over 20 countries. . “I was still living in Paris when I heard about a job opportunity at The French Laundry. I had my meeting with Chef Keller at the Charles de Gaulle airport. My first day was pure perfection: flawless execution of service and custom experiences for every single guest who walked through the Blue Door. Chef Keller has created a very special culture: one of happiness with a diverse team working together seamlessly to create the most unforgettable culinary experience for every guest. I still feel butterflies in my stomach to this day. . This culture resonates with my personality because of my passion to find beauty in everything and everyone. I believe that life is too short not to be elegant every moment. Style—elegance, chic à-la-Française, minimalism—has been an integral part of my life for years. . There is an environment of respect, authenticity, and elegance without stuffiness; a beautiful atmosphere, not only for the guests, but for the staff as well. When you, as a team member, feel special and supported by all your colleagues in the kitchen and in the dining room from beginning to end, acting as One, like family, that is extraordinary, and it is something I’ve never experienced before in all my years in hospitality. . For me, the culture extends beyond offering our guests the best ingredients, but also to authentic personalities from every single employee, from porter to manager. This is priceless. That is the best experience: People for people.”
Lots of fun last Sunday on @FoxandFriends! Chattin’ about carving turkeys on Thanksgiving and how to kick your dinner up a notch! Check out the full segment on my IG Story. Safe Travels this week everybody!
These picture are like block of memories we opened kitchen on 22 November 2010 .. time passes so fast so quick.. but memories remain 2013 we started pushing boundaries started to “Looking for a sign of life Looking for something help me burn out bright looking for a complication.. “.. (foo fighter) 2014-15 We climbed @theworlds50best mountain and topped the Asia50best.. for the first time .. then we had a crisis some left us some joined us we rattled a little but then we took best decision of my life .. not to open another Gaggan rather invest back to existing place and .. 2016 August we opened our lab.. my new arena .. same year @chefstablenetflix @thisisdavidgelb Completely changed my status forever .. from then we have been consistent with our success Since then indian food status has changed, finally we made sure 1.3 billion people’s food is among the top of world 2018 we got 2 ⭐️⭐️ from first @michelinguide Launch .. repeat that this year .. many will say why not 3 ? (does it matter !! Did they have an Indian from India inspecting me to really understand what we changed) Anyways the only criticism I had was I travel a lot !! 😤 yes it’s true but I if i didn’t I wouldn’t have been cooking the way we are cooking thinking and changing the meaning of my life as a chef !! How would I get inspired .. But but but .. 2019 feb onward I have decided that until I close I won’t ever cook outside my kitchens (exception of Gohgan) until we close Gaggan which is 30June 2020 .. This is why the pop ups I did in this year were and the ones I will do are the last time I cook outside Gaggan as Gaggan .. My partners shareholders are some of the best people who I know they invested me when I had a dream and nothing else .. so 2019 is my last year my last year in 50 best last year in #asias50best and last year in worlds50best whatever the ranking if we make it to the list will be my farewell as Gaggan .. oh and I forgot to mention @goh_f The guy who
• It’s a cold and bleak late Sunday afternoon in Copenhagen. It’s mid winter, dark and freezing. I’m pounding the pedals of my old rusty bike as I eye a person in front of me. I see the silhouette of someone carrying a take away pizza. “Hi chef” garima shorts out, shying away from me, as if she’s been caught doing something wrong. “Hi Garima, enjoy your Sunday” I shout back “and your pizza;)” It was that weekend that I had decided to ask Garima if she wanted to be a souschef at noma. She’d done a solid two years as a chef de partie and simply done amazing on all accounts. So the following week we organized a meeting and I enthusiastically told her about my plan.... Well to cut a long story short Garima, didn’t take the job. And now she’s just become THE FIRST INDIAN WOMAN TO GET A MICHELIN STAR!!! I’m sorry for shouting but I’m just so happy for her and her team. Please Instagram friends, you should follow her. @arorgarima And send her messages to congratulate her. Well done Garima. We miss you in Copenhagen. You’re a legend!
ST. LOUIS, I’M HERE! Excited to announce my newest restaurant, @GrandTavernSTL at the @AngdadHotel!! It wouldn’t be a DB restaurant without some of my signature dishes, but I’m also adding a twist on some of the famous St. Louis favorites including the gooey butter cake (donuts). Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. #chewdoin
The swastika as a character 卐 is a geometrical figure and an ancient religion, it was a symbol of auspiciousness and good luck until the 1930s, when it was twisted and then it became a symbol of evil, inhuman faith. The name swastika comes from Sanskrit pronounced swastika in Sanskrit and swastik in Hindi and other languages denotes "conducive to well being or auspicious". In Hinduism, the clockwise symbol is called swastika, symbolizing (sun), prosperity and good luck Wishing you all happy Diwali ... who ever you are what ever ur religion whatever color u belong let good luck good food and good times touch you life and real happiness of people around you .. 🕌⛪️💒🕍🕋☮️🕉☯️✡️🔯✝️☪️🛐🕎 #happydiwali#gaggan#gaa#miharatofutenbkk#meatlicious#suhring#asias50best#world50best
Fish 🐠 granola Made with sea bass Corn starch to bind Nuts berries Dried fruits And cream cheese to complete. This dish is a result of an accident @pjoao20 and I were fryin this fish and forgot in a oil until it became so crispy flaky that it was almost like a fish crumbs luckily the oil was not very hot so it kind of helped the texture Then after lot of research we figured out the best way to create fish crumb is from first steaming the fish and then squeeze the water out and then slowly flake it and fry in medium to high temperature to give a perfect golden color texture .. although this was in the previous menu but hardly anyone one who ate could realize it as fish everyone thought it’s cereal bar or granola bar .. soon will sell them in 7/11 near you hahahaha 😈.. #worlds50best#asias50best#gaggan#fishgranola#hugmeismelllikecurry#michelinbkk#gaa#meatlicious#miharatofutenbkk#suhring#wetbkk
@germanmartitegui and our team what do we have in common ?? he is from Argentina and I am from India probably nothing except both our countries wear blue in sports and both our countries have corruption in politics But there is revolution happening here the evolution of having a Argentine meal without meat being a subject.. The eye opener of this worlds cuisine and ingredients will be the highlight of our cooking here using their products to our advantage We crossed the planet and the chef welcomes us saying “mi casa tu casa “ (my home ur home) and then our teams become one for the time we are here I love the humility and humbleness of this chef who dedicated his restaurant his guest and his space and team for our gig Thank you chef for letting us in and hope to repeat the same in Bangkok And guys the next big thing in cuisine is gonna happen in this part of the world the rebels are doing an incredible job especially in these troubles economic times they are fighting the battle to sustain fine dining #worlds50best#latam50best#asias50best#tegui#gaggan#onelasttimethenitsover#argentina🇦🇷
