Top Chef: Season Two runner-up Marcel Vigneron will pop-up next Thursday at BreadBar Century City for one sold-out night. Vigneron has been cooking at The Bazaar over the last few months, meaning he’s steeped in the same razzle-dazzle that just helped vault Michael Voltaggio to Colicchio’s winner’s circle. Marcel created his own menu for the night, and we just snagged a copy of what the self-proclaimed “sorcerer composer” has planned.
There are enough textures, spherifications, and even a “yogurt sponge” to please the curious, while Marcel himself claims the international menu serves to “evoke a conscious perception of the natural shape and flavor of substances, colors, and textures that exist within the earth.” Want to see what this sensitive soul means? Find Marcel Vigneron’s full menu (and mission statement) for next week’s pop-up below.
