Mad Scientist Chef Grant Achatz Anti-Griddlin' at AlineaS

You may not be able to spend hundreds on a meal at foodie mecca Alinea. But you can watch Grant Achatz pulverize, vaporize and atomize other people's plates—streamed live last night... Update: Recorded video embedded below



What you can't see in this footage is that despite how sterile the oft-speechless, stainless steel kitchen may look, the smells that fill the room are nothing short of wondrous. Just how these chefs resist consuming every plate they create is beyond my comprehension.
