Homaro Cantu, the chef best known for so-called molecular gastronomy, held an impromptu cooking class at his restaurant, Moto, on Tuesday morning. Tuesday night, Cantu premiered a playful Martin Scorsese-themed menu at his adjacent restaurant, iNG, with Italian influenced food and drinks. Why Scorsese? "We chose Scorsese because we think he is one of the most creative artists and he has a sense of humor even in his most serious works," said Cantu Wednesday.
That is how I'd describe the chef and his work as well.
