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 Empell√≥n 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.
