Le Grand Fooding. 48 hours, 13 Chefs.
Pictures from a birthday celebration, for Kevin, with Hugue Deflour, Chef and owner of M. Wells, and 40 other guests. The event took place on the third floor of Honey Space, a Chelsea art gallery.
|Long table set for 40|
|Kitchen are, Hugue Delfour and team.|
Our seats were right next to the kitchen, both good and bad. The heat was a little overwhelming at times but it was an experience to watch the chef plate all the courses.
|Sweet photography skills|
|Tomato soup and Foie Gras grilled cheese|
Rich and decant, this dish was absolutely delicious. To be honest, I could have stopped eating after this because I was so full.
|Corn PARTY!! Seasoned roasted corn, with 14k gold shavings that was rolled in lemon lobster butter|
The corn was served over popcorn with a huge slap of lobster butter. Once the corn was gone, we couldn't let the buttery goodness go to waste, so we picked up some bread and started spreading away. Almost wish I could have wrapped it to bring home with me.
If you look closely, you'll see a blurry image of Chef Hugue. I really love this picture, everything else in the is sharp, but he is out of focus.
|Fried fish friends wrapped in escarole in a Asian broth with oysters and mushrooms|
|AND for dessert, Salmon creamsicle (more like pudding that tasted like creamsicle)|
Overall, this was a fantastic experience; possibly one of the coolest things I've ever attended. Although, at times, the heat was unbearable and I could barely breath, (now combine that with the eating; if you know me, it was ROUGH at times). I was thoroughly impressed and wish I could have eaten at some of the other seatings that took place.
