This week on The Food Seen Michael goes on the road to Star Chef’s International Chef’s Congress, a meeting of the minds for culinary masters to show off their most creative and innovative techniques and ideas. Michael speaks to Jordan Kahn about cooking with colors, playing on our preconceptions about what food should look like and exploring how the visual affects our taste. Michael also speaks to Gabriel Bremer about cooking basics versus new school technology and how art affects both. Alex Stupak also talks about using PVC pipe to make pastries, and Kristen Murray talks about inspiration. This episode was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.
