Current free agent Jeremy Fox called us this afternoon with the news that he’ll be taking over the kitchen at Saison next month, June 14 to June 18, while friend Joshua Skenes is off in Aspen at the Food & Wine Classic. Fox will be cooking a menu entirely his own which he’s calling Smith at Saison. “Smith, you know, like the most common name in the world. Anonymous. But also a craftsman, an artisan skilled at a certain kind of work.” Fox, who’s of course anything but anonymous in these parts, recently did a one-night stint at Saison, co-cheffing with Skenes back in April, and doing dishes from the repertoire he’s creating for a new book and website, featuring vegetables he’s learning to grow himself at a private farm in Napa. Should be fun. Call Saison for reservations at 415.828.7990. [Grub Street]
