Hot Chefs, Roving Chefs, The Swedish Chef…and Robin Hood

As promised in my previous post, here’s the link to my story in this week’s US 1 with more details on this coming Saturday’s Princyclopedia, a free event for kids of all ages at Princeton University. The flier at left is a reminder to bring a non-perishable food donation – in the spirit of Robin Hood, which is this year’s theme book. I’ll be there and I hope you will be, too.

Congrats to Bruce Lefebvre, longtime chef at The Frog and The Peach in New Brunswick who just purchased the restaurant from Betsy Alger and Jim Black. The couple established this ground-breaking restaurant back in the ’80s and have decided to retire. It is well earned and I wish them a long and happy one.

Food & Wine magazine has named its Best New Chefs for 2012 So if you travel around the US and like to dine at the hottest places check out the winners here.

And finally….

This is from my favorite tweet of the week. It comes via Bret Thorn of Nation’s Restaurant News, a trade newspaper, in a list of recent chefs-on-the-move:

“Wes Shaw is the new executive chef at Presidio Social Club in San Francisco. Inspired to join the restaurant world by his grandfather and by the Swedish chef from the Muppets, this native of League City, Texas, is highlighting his heritage by featuring beef brisket on Tuesday nights.”

Don’t you just love this guy for citing the Swedish Chef as an inspiration?

  1. Don’t all chemists start by wanting to be Beaker?
