A new one for the RSS Feed: Chef Philip Foss of Lockwood (in the Palmer House Hilton) has an up-and-running blog that seems to take its cue from L2O’s wildly succesful blog: lots of plating photos and kitchen shots, accompanied by a glimpse at the chef’s thought process. Also a photo of Foss’s daughter that made us get all melty.
The blog is a nice read, for sure, with plenty of shoutouts to the chef’s inspirations ranging from Thomas Keller to Grant Achatz (those two guys are getting a heck of a MenuPages workout today). And Foss definitely has a sense of humor: explaining a dessert of banana, bacon, and beer (omg yes), he says ‘This presentation took time to develop… and not during an all night pot smoking session.” (also omg yes.)
We’re a little intrigued by the frequency and quantity of posting: the blog’s only been up and running since September 2, but already has more than 30 posts — a whopping twenty of which went up between 5:50 and 9:48 PM on the 10th. That’s prime dinner time on a Wednesday night, so either Chef Foss had his night off and spent it on Blogger, or some poor assistant’s job description now includes hitting “post” on all those blogger entries.
