A pop-up, the hyped culinary phenomena at the moment, is a temporary restaurant in any space imaginable, be it an old restaurant space is this was the case, or on a subway train. (seriously)
Not only a dream to work at a pop-up, but for heaven's sake NYC. The culinary capital of the world. Keller, Chang, Boulod, Liebrandt, Humm, the list could continue on forever. It is no exaggeration to say that if you can work and keep up with the New York kitchens and dining scene, you can work anywhere.
So a two week stint to taste the foundations of New York was a perfect step in. What an experience it was....a journey through the valleys and the mountains. The food was incredible, the team unrelenting, the acquaintances and press met astonishing, and memories never to be forgotten.
More detailed post to come..perhaps.

Apparently I am a hand model now..
After a 5 hour layover in Dulles from Denmark, with no phone service, 6$ to my name, and no internet, this is the creative session that came from it. Don't steal my ideas! :)
PS: Did I mention I ate at Per Se?
