Four times a year, Art Culinaire profiles the work of leading chefs and food and drink professionals with an eye to keeping other pros up-to-date on creativity within the industry. While some issues have a geographic concentration, this one skips about enthusiastically, profiling Alex Atala (who’s twirling his moustache on the cover) in São Paulo and Tarver King of Patowmack Farms in Lovettesville, Virginia. There’s a diversion to a dinner served up by Nathan Myhrvold of Modernist Cuisine to debunk culinary myths. And in the repeating Looking Glass feature, three sommeliers blind taste a wine and speculate as to its origins. Great presentation photography on the work of all the chefs.
