David Kinch

Food critic Florence Fabricant just completed a 3-part series for the New York Times on the cooking techniques of Chef David Kinch. (photograph by Felipe Buitrago) David runs the amazing Manresa in Los Gatos and was recently awarded a fourth star by the Chronicle’s Michael Bauer.

With registration you can read the articles on the NYT site, or you can access them here:

Reductio ad Perfectionem: What a Pigeon (02/08/2006)
Butter, Brown and Nutty, a Homage to New Orleans (02/15/2006)
By Fat Transformed: The Confit in All Its Splendor (02/22/2006)

It’s been a while since I have been to Manresa, but these reviews from KQED’s Check, Please! do a good job of describing its excellence. You’ll know when I go back as it will certainly be my cool thing of the day. Thanks to Stuart for introducing me to Manresa and to Joy for mentioning the NYT series.
