With the strong desire to cook creative food, cook once more with my friend and mentor Chef Tim Bereika from Secco, and the thought of bringing Richmond a popup that was exciting and new, Meddle was born.
We began to throw the idea around quite a few months ago, and solidified both of our desires to see our dream become reality. The difficult part from the beginning was figuring out where to start..where it would be, how we could do it, when, what we would cook, how we would create the menu.
Through back and forth emails, tweets, meetings, Facetimes(21st century cooks!), ongoing google documents, we finally released information and the confirmation of our endeavor.
Thus far it has been an incredible growth and beautiful thing to watch, and the excitement both Tim and myself feel is overwhelming. Perhaps we should film our next creative session-it is truly remarkable our relationship and ping-ing of ideas. The collaboration is brilliant-ideas, techniques, and ingredients that we will display momentous. The realization that it will all be coming to fruition in a few weeks is mind blowing.
And I can't wait to show you all what Tim and I can do in the kitchen.
I hope to see you there!
