Inside the Kitchen for an Alex Stupak and Grant Achatz Thanksgiving

As promised, last night Alex Stupak served another of his Push Project dinners at Empellón Cocina, this time alongside Grant Achatz (who also brought along his executive chefs from Next and Aviary in Chicago). As you can probably guess, this is a group of chefs that does not really get down with the idea of a traditional Thanksgiving. Instead, diners were served a thirteen-course blowout (and were even sent home with bags of “leftovers,” including stuffing and fresh-baked baguettes, for next-day sandwich-making). Grub’s own Jed Egan was in the kitchen to watch it go down — see it all in our slideshow.
