The same square table...
... in the same quintessential Chicago apartment dining room.
A different cast of characters.
Eighteen artful courses.
Copious amounts of wine.

Lifting the veil of surprise
reveals a masterful level of consistency
and seasonal sensibility.

One Chef
Iliana Regan
hunter
forager
tiny kitchen wizard
serves grilled cheese bubbles
liquefied apple pie
and exploding chocolate balls

friend of mother nature
calls it a perfectly cooked potato and proves it.
Thinks people are salty.
defines dulcet dishes
visionary artist
underground, but not for long
Elizabeth will bring her up for air
