aritaymor-alma-esquire-041114asdf.jpgAri Taymor of Alma unabashedly defends modern cooking in this essay in Esquire, but still finds the most inspiration from somewhere else. Says Taymor: "I cook modern food in a restaurant that serves only a set menu. I'll admit it with all the baggage that comes with it. But we're not all the same. I'm more inspired by your grandmother than most of the young chefs of my generation." [Esquire]
