We mentioned last week that Jeremy Fox would be stepping in for chef Joshua Skenes at Saison for the week of June 14 to 18 while Skenes is away in Aspen. Now Tablehopper reveals he’ll have two collaborators in the kitchen: Eli Kirshstein from Top Chef season 6, who Fox met at the Atlanta Food & Wine Fest; and one Kim Alter, newly a free agent after quitting her post at Plate Shop earlier last week. We’ve been curious ever since Kim’s announcement whether the two friends, free agents and former coworkers at Ubuntu and Manresa, might have some sort of team project in the works, and if we had to guess, this one-week stint won’t be the last we’ll see of the pair in a kitchen together.
