Last night’s Bold Food pop up with @eatfeastly was a great success. Lots of 5 star reviews already today! We had fun with liquid nitrogen making shattered raspberries and ice cream! If you want to try it out for yourself, there are still tickets available for the next dinner on Dec 20. Link in bio.
The key to good potato chips is boiling the sliced potatoes first to cook them all the way through. This way they are much more evenly crisp without burning. Even the purple ones. 🥔 🥔 🥔🥔🥔🥔 These are seasoned with galangal, ginger, lime leaf, coconut and chilis to make Thai flavored potato chips. #popupprep
Time to make the veggie broth! Chopped vegetables are cooked sous vide at 85C for 6 hours with only a little salt. The liquid that comes out of the vegetables isn't diluted with any water at all, and cooking sous vide means that you don't lose any of the volatile aromatics that make the vegetables taste so good. The veggie broths are mixed with beef broth to add just the right amount of aromatics. If you want to try it, there are still seats available for Wednesday's pop up in San Francisco! Link in bio.
If you are in Fukuoka and need a break from Ramen (what?!), Dazaifu is a perfect day trip. Start with egg sandwiches and coffee at Rankan, then visit the Tenman-gū Shrine and the breathtaking Kyushu National Museum. Rankan Coffeeshop will surprise you with its beauty and very serious coffee selection. The owner is a certified Q Grader and has impeccable taste in decor and coffee accoutrements.

My favorite dish from the @komaaj dinner @eatfeastly in San Francisco. Fermented herbs with cucumbers. This is my first experience with the tart, complex and delicious flavors of Northern Iranian food. Check out their pop ups! Definitely worth it!
Such an incredible private class with @michaelfranti and @saraagahfranti last night! Check out Michael’s Instagram story to see all the fun we had!
Wow! 1.3 million views for my video with @foodandwine and @lavazzausa ! #ad #coffee

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Most people prefer traditional food on turkey day, so I always try to innovate and improve using technique rather than focusing on creativity in the end product. I make sous vide turkey with different preparations for light and dark meat. And I also try to sneak in one unusual dish. This year I used Japanese purple sweet potatoes for the traditional sweet dish with brown sugar and marshmallows. It was beautiful and less mushy than orange yams can be.
Time to start Thanksgiving prep! Dark meat will be salt cured and then cooked confit and sous vide for 24 hrs at 70C. Breast will be cooked sous vide at 58C for 7 hrs. Turkey stock already made with roasted bones and the pressure cooker. Sides will be prepped tomorrow. How do you cook your turkey?
Incredible lunch at Instanbul Modern today with @lauraandsayat and @eatfeastly ! The creamy Kaymak with honey was my favorite, but everything was so delicious that everyone in our group had a different favorite.
If you are in Tokyo and need to take a small break from ramen, Japanese beef is a very good choice.
Here’s (almost) the full length video I worked on with @lavazzaofficial about using coffee in new and creative ways!
Just a boy and his #ramen cubicle @ichiranjp for our last meal in #Fukuoka (breakfast of course)!
