Her response: "Jordan Kahn at Red Medicine in LA. He's a pastry chef coming from a white tablecloth background. It's been awhile since I've been to a restaurant and seen something totally original on a plate. It was all totally new. He's a pastry chef but his food is very savory. It kind of blew my mind. Not everything is something I want to eat every night, but the way he plates food is extraordinarily striking. He blurs the line between pastry and savory. There is no line — he just treats ingredients in new ways. Beautiful, savory, satisfying." [EaterWire]
