Our very own Scott Heimendinger, the infamous Seattle Food Geek, has landed a job across Lake Washington here in Seattle with the Modernist Cuisine team in Bellevue. You can read all about it from the horse’s mouth:
So now Eric works at Alinea and Scott works at Modernist Cuisine. That’s pretty insane. From our humble beginnings trying to figure out what this stuff is all about, these guys are now at the top tier of gastronomy in the US. I couldn’t be more psyched for them. A huge congrats to Scott and yet another example to keep following your passions.
And what about me? I’m reminded of a quote by Woody Allen: “I don’t really care about commercial success – and the end result is, I rarely achieve it.” I’ll still forge these high end recipes in my home kitchen just, well, because. Who knows – perhaps Anthony Bourdain needs a travel and drinking buddy. I’m game.
