as I look back on the best year of eating of my life, I tried to think about which meal was the most impactful. to me that was noma:mexico and that was for a wide variety of reasons beyond the obvious. I was so excited to see what René and his team would do with all these new ingredients and degrees of heat not usually found in Scandinavian cooking. I followed along every day on Instagram to try to see what they were building. And in the end, a hastily booked red eye flight and a long pre-dawn car ride were necessary to get to the meal I so anxiously awaited. On top of that I was having some emotional struggles, feeling low, and had a virus plaguing my left leg and a busted ankle on the end of my right leg. Basically I was a mess. And then i entered the restaurant in the jungle and for just a few hours I was at total peace, just exploring and being affected by the art of a whole team of endlessly dedicated people. This, to me, is what this food thing is all about: just allowing yourself to go on an adventure designed by someone else and remembering to be mindful and learn along the way. I’ll never forget this meal, or this year, or the wonderful people who were a part of it. ❤️❤️❤️ (and by the way this is an ant larvae tostado and it blew my fucking mind)
2017 was an amazing work year highlighted by an incredible 3 weeks in Tulum with the beautiful people from @nomacph. Thank you to all the amazing collaborators, assistants & clients that where involved in this journey. Looking forward to a great 2018. One of the tastiest dishes of 2017, Octopus from Noma Mexico, one of my fav pics too.
